Windows 7: Radeon HD 6950 2GB Flash Mod

I can see people still post on this

I found another, much safer way to enable the disabled shaders.
Make sure you have your 6950 BIOS set to the 1
Get ATI WinFlash and RBE (Radeon BIOS Editor)
Open WinFlash and save your 6950 BIOS.
Open RBE and load the BIOS, then click 'Additional features'.
On the right hand side you will see '6970 Shader count' click it. (If you can't, you don't have a reference design)
Save the BIOS, open WinFlash and flash your card!

You're advocating what's pretty much in the link I provided about finally flashing my card.....

I gather that since the DCII is almost entirely a custom effort, I'll have to stick to ASUS' bios or something. I remember, in one of the reviews I read before purchasing it that someone was able to flash it. I just don't know how.

Yeah your card is a little different so I have no suggestions other than sticking with the Asus BIOS.
