I know personally that it works for some people I know, however for me I had stability issues with it and went back to the 6970 bios and keep my fan speed up to compensate for the increase in temperature.

I don't have a screenie of the 6950 shader only edit as I had issues with it on my particular system. All the stats match the 6950 screenie other than the shaders which will match the value shown in the 6970 image above.

Script to keep 6950 bios and edit shaders only: HERE

I've been running on the 6950 w/ 6970 bios for about 2 months now with no issues. I do keep my fan speed on the card on manual @ about 35% rather than "auto" which only seems to run the fan at about 25% - 30%. When gaming, I crank it up to around 55% and have NO issues with heat.

I've gone through this several times now, feel free to pm me if you have any questions or need help.

Good luck and happy flashing!

Cheers buddy ill have a go i think im gunna do a bit more research on flashing cards but will try it out !
Glad youve had success if anything keep me posted on how its running cheers !

I no i keep my fan speed dead on 50 im always gaming literally all the time so i just keep it at 50 because im loading it on a quite big screen with hdmi and i get great cooling unless im watching a film it does get pretty loud and annoying so i crank it down to about 25 % overall though i can put up with the noise nothing to worry about im used to it haha

Great stuff

Keep me posted on how your living up to your card !

Yep, finished it last night thanks to Stormy's help with a IDE problem. The machine is sitting comfortably at Tower: 30c processor: 34/37c Also found out that the red lines i was having with my eairler pc was due to the graphics card not being 100% compatible with windows 7.

Success!....but 32, not 64
I followed suggestions and ended up with a 45 minute install of 7. A breeze. HOWEVER, I could only get 32 to install. Many attempts to get 64 to install failed, regardless of what method used, i.e. boot with disk in, out and use setup, etc. Always said wrong disk, and 3 times BSOD'd, so stuck...
