LOL @ this. I recall you mentioning that it's impossible to unlock them PERIOD. You were extremely adamant about it too... isn't it ironic? Don't you think?

I unlocked MSI Twin Frozr III 6950 2GB Today!

Yep I did it however I purchased two cards for crossfire.

One works the other one does not. Anyone have any ideas?

The card Im on about is the MSI Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III 2GB

The card I used these bios on has since become crippled. Anyone else have a problem?

Edit: I think the card shouldn't of been unlocked in the first place. It was not doing so well before I did that anyways.

I did revert. It still doesn't work. I started a thread about it but decided to post this here as a warning and as a general question. If I had a problem, have others? Oh and it did work for several months. I think I was the second poster on this thread

either you didn't do it right or you are SOL
NOT ALL CARDS UNLOCK *and stay working*
reflash it with the factory bios that you probably didn't backup before you started playing with forces you didn't understand ...
this is the thread you should have read
http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/vidcard/159
you probably burnt the card up ... some of the early 6950's didnt like being unlocked

So really what I am here for is one thing. Not to be told what I did wrong, what I know and do not know, and obvious things. I am here to see if anyone else had problems.

Go troll elsewhere

I was trying to make the impression on you that if you so chose todo ANY kind of bios flashing you take the risk of it blowing up in your face
there are at least 5 threads on this on TPU and I am pretty sure they all mention that this COULD eventually destroy the card

Its not the bios, It has nothing to do with it. BECAUSE ITS THE SAME BIOS, it just had been moddified with the shaders.
