    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Hey, what memory chips did your XFX come with? The normal 6950 ones, or the faster 6970 memory chips?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Some say yes, some say no. Flashing to a 6970 bios directly seems to be more risky. The consensus is that modifying your stock bios, and enabling the shaders is the safest method. Read through this thread to find out how to do so. You might be able to control voltage with Afterburner if you...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    You need to download and use the script I posted a link to in step 3 to flash your bios instead of using Winflash directly. Download that script, rename your modded bios to "unlock.bin", copy it into the "winflash" folder (which is inside the folder you extract this script to), then run...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Honestly sounds like a game bug or driver issue to me.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    To whom it might matter, I was bored the other day and look under the heatsink of my Gigabyte 6950, it has the T2C memory chips. I run it at 1375 daily for over a month with no issues here. I have my stock 6950 bios modded, so my voltage/mem timings are all stock.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Afterburner with "unofficial overclocking" will cause that. Power Control being at +20% will not do that, I use Trixx and my Power Control at +20% and it goes through all its 2D lower clock settings like stock.

    Yeah, reboot and it should come back. I've had it do that before. :shadedshu

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    There is a big bug in Trixx that keeps it from being perfect. Voltage control should be added soon from what W1zzard says, but the big bug is with power control. With the current Trixx, each time you restart your computer, or change your core Mhz in Trixx, it puts power control back at 0% no...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I don't know about in CCC, but I know the overclock limits in Trixx itself are automatically very high. Smart Doctor will not run at all, not even to enable higher CCC limits if you don't have an Asus bios on your card. And then, if you take the Asus bios off the card the CCC limits go back to...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I am just hoping Trixx fixes the Power Control bug, then it will be perfect for me. I don't use smart doctor because I don't want to put an Asus bios on my card. I like using my stock, modified bios just to be safe.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Do you have unofficial overclocking enabled? The problem does not occur if unofficial overclocking is not enabled.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I was able to get a hold of W1zzard about our Trixx issue with the Power Control setting. Here was his response: "I have heard about the issue, but haven't had time to look into it yet. Voltage support for 6900 series is planned and we're just waiting on documentation from the vrm...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I haven't really looked into the 570 gtx and how it compares to the 6950/6970, but I am pretty happy with my card. The only issue I have with my modded 6950 is getting software to run the fan/overclock/power control/2d idle settings all correctly. Trixx is pretty close, and hopefully they will...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I guess its preference really. If I was just doing this to save money, then no, it wouldn't be worth it I don't think. I really do it for fun and to see how much extra I can get. If i spent $70 more and go something else I would push it to its limits as well.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Lucky, but even so, yeah the 2D clock issue still kills it for me. I don't mind having a high overclock on my card as long as it's only running that while playing games. Most likely that will never damage the cad. Now running the card fast all the time, now that just seems like a bad idea and...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    That's one reason I do not use Afterburner. Plus if you have a custom fan curve, Afterburner will not keep using it if you have AB setup to auto switch between 2D and 3D profiles which can cause the card to run even hotter. Unfortunately there is no great solution to fully run all the settings...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Does ATT allow you to overclock past the normal CCC limits like Trixx does? If so, I will give ATT another attempt when I get home and see about letting afterburner just control my fan. I posted my Afterburner troubles in their bug thread days ago and haven't gotten a response yet. I did...

    What windows are you running? I tried installing ATI Tray Tools on Windows 7 X64 and every time I try to start the program I just get a blue screen and reboot :wtf:

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    That would be great if it worked out. The only issue I see, if you are able to import the signature, is that the overclock limits still might not be high enough. Both of my cards are rock stable at 965mhz/1450mhz 1.200v, and I think a lot of peoples probably are at 1.200v. I might even be able...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I guess to each their own. I run my card at 1.200v 965mhz/1450mhz and I like keeping my card below 80* so I need my fan control. I am using Trixx for now. I just tested it if I use Hibernate instead of shutdown for my computer then I don't have to go mess with Power Control when I turn my...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Exactly, doesn't matter in 2D mode, but leave it alone and try running kombustor and see how hot it gets running the stock profile.. not good. Kills the program for me if I can game with my custom fan profile while using AB with unofficial overclocking

    Just tried it out.. no matter what I do, it wont go back to my profile until I double click user define :(

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    For me, it disables my custom fan curve every time I change a setting and click apply or every time it auto switches profiles. It makes the program useless to me because it won't cool the card the way I need it too and I don't want to overheat the card when playing a game. I posted it in the...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Is your custom fan curve working for you all the time and staying active when Afterburner switches between 2D and 3D profiles? No matter what, with Unofficial Overclocking enabled, my fan curve goes back to ATIs default when the profiles automatically switch. Even though, in Afterburner, User...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Do you have unofficial overclocking enabled in AB? If so, what do you do for your fan? Customer curve in AB or what?
