Yeah it would be helpful to your question if he clarified his statement

Example: I'm running my 6950 @ 880/1375 but I BIOS flashed my card using these procedures - Unlocking The AMD Radeon HD 6950 to 6970 - BIOS Flash Mod Guide - AMD Radeon HD 6950 to HD 6970 Modification - Legit Reviews

I know you said you had concerns about bricking your card with a flash but I just wanted to show you what I did.

You can see my post on it here - Radeon HD 6950 2GB Flash Mod

I did use CCC, but I also use ASUS SmartDoctor to increase the OC range and for overvolting. Considering my card is a special case, I'd recommend you use MSI Afterburner.

I can't argue this because you're always taking a risk anytime you overclock something from the norm. But that's what makes tweaking fun, and dangerous if you're not careful

Custom board and custom voltage regulators.

Nothing, bar the actual GPU, is the same as the reference design 6950's.
