    Bad Company 2 Locking up my machine

    I reinstalled the game and still have the issue. Does punkbuster somehow update automatically? If so, is there a way to roll it back to a previous version?

    Bad Company 2 Locking up my machine

    Has anyone found a solution? Is this caused by PunkBuster? I've tried to troubleshoot some things to narrow down what could be causing the problem: > Reflashed BIOS -- still crashes > Reverted to stock clocks (even though FurMark stable at 880/1325) -- still crashes > Reinstalled Bad Company 2...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Are you flashing with ATIWinflash or through command prompt?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I'll have to test it out more thoroughly. You may be right. I do notice a bit of stuttering when a map first loads in Bad Company 2. However, my card did crash on me yesterday so I'll have to test it further. If there's no difference in the games, I might as well keep power control at 0%...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I just ran 3DMark 11 (performance) with and without the power control option. Unlocked 6950 (not overclocked): Without - 5021 +10% PC - 5012 Seems to be no impact, at least in the synthetic benchmarks.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I know that it only increases wattage, not voltage. So far, I've just unlocked my shaders; have not overclocked yet. I may have to bump the voltage up from 1.1v if I begin to overclock past 850/1350. I haven't even begun yet... My original question was: after unlocking the shaders, is...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I still have mine set to 0% until I read otherwise.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Interesting. I ran 3DMark before and after the flash. My benchmark went up by 800-900 points after the flash so it is surely not worse than before.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Did this. Am now unlocked with 1536 shaders. Do I need to adjust "Power Control" to +20% in CCC?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    What do your 6950s idle at? Mine idles @ 49C and that seems a bit high. Ambient temp is ~20C.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I know, but there are 60+ pages in the thread and I honestly do not have the time to read all of it in detail. Can you please just provide a direct answer?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I've been reading this thread and it seems that flashing to a 6970 can potentially overvolt the card and fry the memory. I don't want to brick a new card... Is it better to just flash to a 6950 bios with unlocked shaders (and overclock with AMD overdrive) than flashing to a 6970 bios?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I just got my HIS 6950. Which 6970 BIOS should I use? Do I need to use the HIS 6970 BIOS or will any bios work? Is a particular BIOS more stable and preferred among the people here who have already flashed their cards? Thanks.

    Which Router to Get?

    By the way, I already own a D-Link DIR-655, which has a faster processor than the DGL-4100 I want to get. The DIR-655 is set up in another place. Maybe it would be better to replace the DIR-655 with something less expensive and keep the good DIR-655 for myself?

    Which Router to Get?

    I am purchasing a router for myself. I mainly want a quality product and do not need wireless. At this point, I'm leaning towards the D-Link DGL-4100 but I'm also considering something like the Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT. My main concerns are stability (for gaming/torrents), quality...

    GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 vs ASUS RAMPAGE 2 EXTREME

    I've been nothing but very happy with my UD5. Then again, I'm biased. I'm sure that the ASUS board is very good as well and doubt that there will be any significant performance differences between the top X58 boards.
