6950 wont OC
Hi guys, I have an AMD Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III 1GD5 Edition Card. The problem is that it just wont overclock. Even if I raise the core clock by 10MHZ it is always unstable. Latest Drivers, Put power to +20, tried raising voltages, used 2nd bios. Nothing helped please help me thanks

Not all cards are guaranteed to overclock. It sucks, but I guess you can't overclock.

It did happen to me that EVGA Precision went on the fritz and locked a clock on me that caused a failed OC. Solution was to uninstall the tool, reinstall it, then reset the card to default settings. guess you're using Afterburner, but it may be worth trying.

K, so it works! I set the power level to +20 and I can get a max OC of 930MHz and 1390MHz on the mem. Thanks Lebungz

RE: 6950 wont OC
Lebungz, It is happening again and I tried your solution again but it doesn't work. :'( Now I feel like I just wasted $199.99. Does anyone have any other solutions? It would really help me thanks! BTW I have a 6950 at a 6970 Shader Unlock. The 6970 clock lock in Radeon Biod Editor gives me a blue screen. Sad
