    I've been looking at different websites, and I have a hard time finding another 6950 to CF with my other 6950 2gb...

    In the reviews, most cards are said "NOT able to unlock" and the others it just doesn't say...
    confusing...

    anyone know where to find some? Links?

    MSI Twin Frozr III. I've personally bought 5 of these between November '11 and February '12 and every single one unlocked.

    Not sure about buying one but ...

    I'm looking for radeon 6950 2gb that unlock... I know how to unlock them, I have a Ref card (xfx) which I unlocked (shaders only)...

    I'm looking for another 6950 2gb that will allow me to unlock it's shaders too, and CF it with my current xfx card...

    The link from "Master Invader" is for a card that doesn't unlock and the link from the other guy is for a 570 lol...

    So I take it there aren't anymore on the market?

    Best bet is to buy a used one that is known to unlock.
