    Though they look like identical twins right down to the dimple, unfortunately cross flashing results in black screen upon entering Win7.

    I guess nowadays Device IDs are hardcoded into the boostrap, otherwise people would all be happily flashing their cards into Quadros that cost at least tenfold.

    The fact that the app supports the Asus Retail just fine kind of gives me a glimpse of hope that not all non-Msi products are simply ignored by the team, and that it's probably just a case where they haven't got a chance to play with the rather obscure OEM model from the opposing camp.

    Keeping my fingers crossed, if it doesn't pan out, then I'd still be quite happy with 837 core which I'm able to get out if it right now. :grin:

    Your only other option then is to try playing with NiBiTor, but I am skeptical that will do what you need to.

    Yeah, unless some clever soul finds out where those limits on freq. range & voltage lock corresponding to Afterburner's scheme actually lie inside the BIOS. My assumption is that it's something out of Nibitor's scope, at least for the time being.

    Hello mates, i have a little problem with the afterburner. I have a low possibility of overclocking core clock frequency (max 840MHz) and memory clock (1325MHz). Where is the problem? Have you idea, why?

    My graphics card is MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II, can not be a problem in corporate bios?

    Edit your MSIAfterburner.cfg

    UnlockVoltageControl = 1
    UnlockVoltageMonitoring = 1
    EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 1

    Hi

    My problem with this beta 6 is the program terminates itself after STR (Suspend To RAM, S3) wake-up. It doesn't always happen but it does pretty often. Does anyone have such a problem ? Is it possible to turn some logging/debuging to find out the cause ?

    febrik: Blame AMD. They like to limit the overclockability of their cards. AMD requires that all manufacturers send a copy of their BIOS to AMD to get the rubber stamp before they can be used. Any BIOS that has those limits set too high is rejected. Jeager's solution may work for you, but may not. EnableUnofficialOverclocking is, officially, unsupported, so it may work, or it may cause blue screens. It works by forcing the software to bypass the BIOS, thus where the instability can result. Also note that it will disable PowerPlay, the technology that downclocks your cards when not in use. The other alternative is to try editing and flashing to a different BIOS to circumvent this limit, but I highly do not recommend it.

    The problem is that the MSI R6950 Twin Frozer II, I could not flash the BIOS of another manufacturer, always reports an mismatch. It is possible that MSI has modified the hardware card? Or is it only a software lock the BIOS? I do not have the MSI graphics card experience, sorry for the stupid questions.

    For example Sapphire HD 6950 2048 MB, or standard MSI MSI HD 6950 2048 MB from the techpowerup.com VGA BIOS databaze.

    And also, your other issue, make sure you're using the latest version of MSI Afterburner, which is 2.1.0 Beta 6. You're using 2.00.

    If you want to mod it to a 6970 I think you are screwed because MSI TW use a custom PCB.

    MSI is using a custom version of the PCB and their own Twin Frozr II cooler.
    MSI has chosen to go without the bios switch and a CHiL voltage regulator.

    Hi there.

    I had a very strange problem with voltage tuning in Afterburner 2.1 b6.
    After changing cfg file to unofficial unlocking my system would freeze or BSOD.
    I just installed asus smartdoctor and then uninstalled it. then reinstalled drivers
    Miraculously - voltage tuning worked without a hitch despite the fact i have deleted "unofficial oc" in cfg file.
    now I need "only" 1.265v to get 1000mhz out of my sapphire hd6950.(unlocked shaders with asus bios).

    Restricted: i install Afterburner 2.0, because 2.1.0 Beta 6 caused me BSOD to changing parameter EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 1 :mad:

    But i still it tested, thanks for the advice :)

    Jeager: i will not unlock my R6950, the performance is up to :)
