    Can't get Afterburner to OC my 6950 correctly

    I've had the same issue. Although, when I've tried changing with the 2nd card active, I've sometimes got them to sync up, but it is really random, and I'm not 100% sure what occurred when I did manage to get them to sync up. I just played with it, until they eventually worked at the right...

    Poll: What caused your flashed 6950 permanent damage?

    I didn't even realize those were bugs. I assumed it was a lens effect intentionally there.

    Poll: What caused your flashed 6950 permanent damage?

    Wouldn't it have been nice to have seen a "no damage occured" option? I'd like to know how common these problems are in the first place.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Did you happen to install any of the ASUS software? I've had similar results in Crysis with Smartdoctor installed and it was resolved when I uninstalled it.

    You might want to say, some people. Most people aren't having memory issues, just a few that are posting. Most are happily playing.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Just in case you aren't aware of why this is. When two monitors are hooked up, it has to run at higher clock speeds, particularly the memory, or the 2nd monitor will have bad flickering when anything changes on it. This is also something that Nvidia cards do for the same reason.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I think you are experiencing the same issue I had a while back in the thread. You are using Internet Explorer and viewed an Adobe Flash video. For some odd reason, when you do this, the voltage on the card changes to 1.000, and the clocks are set to 500/1250 (or 500/1350 if you are using the...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I attempted to use the ASUS bios. That aspect worked, but unfortunately, I couldn't use Smartdoctor. It kept telling me it couldn't find an ASUS card.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Ya, the end of Crysis is a major issue on memory leaks. Everywhere else has a minor memory leak I believe. If I play long enough, I always end up with a slow down. Turning off Aero helps prolong the memory leak.

    If you flashed the BIOS back to the original bios from a backup, can they tell it had been altered to begin with?

    On page 16 of this thread they introduced that method. It seems to be pretty self explanatory.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    You don't flash your bios with this method. Just run this utility: www.techpowerup.com/wizzard/Mod_BIOS_HD_6950.zip It'll update your current bios.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Besides being fun to tweak the hardware, it takes about 15 minutes to do, unless you are in the minority with a few problems. I had issues, but the issues I had were Internet explorer errors when using flash videos. It effected both the default 6950 and the 6970, so this had nothing to do with it.

    Yes, a few people used it further back in the thread. I also used it to see how it worked. It definitely worked.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I don't know if GPU-Z can display it without alt tabbing out, unless you have a 2nd monitor as I do. However, you can always alt tab out and see a log of your in game temps. The log can let you know what you are peaking at. MSI Afterburner has the ability for OSD.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    And if you are using it just to monitor, when you open up Afterburner, it will just copy the settings of Overdrive and give you graphics on the right. It's only when you alter the clocks and apply that it changes Overdrive settings.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    MSI Afterburner will enable the overclocking section of ATI Overdrive in the CCC and use the clocks you specify in MSI Afterburner to set Overdrive. If you turn on the user defined fan settings in Afterburner, it will set Overdrive to be user defined, but ignore the % listed in Overdrive, and...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Have you tried MSI Afterburner? It definately works with a single card, and it used to work with dual 5870's. It has a fan curve ability. I use it now.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I'd recommend testing each card individually. It might just be 1 card having difficulties. Some people have been unsuccessful with the flash, not many, but some. If you just happen to be one, then you could attempt the shader unlock instead. It's not going to perform just like a 6970, but...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    MSI Afterburner lets you create a fan curve so the fan only kicks up to higher percents when the temps hit certain temps of your choosing. It's very helpful.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Try setting up a fan profile in MSI afterburner. You can set up a curve so it won't run at 60% except when it needs it.

    Are you sure? I could read it with mine. What version of GPU-Z did you have?
