    Is it 6+8 pin or 6+6?

    OK I managed to reflash one card for now to its original BIOS via WINFLASH, the problems I mentioned are all gone, and then got to RBE 1.28 and flashed it only to unlock the shaders, and as you can see it is all good, without problems, now HOW to continue to unlock it to 6970 clocks? this is the last step I think, please help me with this..

    Finally!... I've been trying to tell you that the whole time.

    Once the shaders are unlocked use Afterburner to raise the clock speeds. ;)

    Good to see RBE worked for you :) but like I said, RBE does NOT work in all cases (non-reference bios cards, not merely just non-reference cooling), even with RBE 1.28, and this is a confirmed issue like I was saying. Pill Monster may not have been aware of that!

    But yeah, MSI Afterburner is the way to go in terms of overclocking.

    tnx, like I said to Pill, when I go to Afterburner, it only allows me to oc to 840Mhz, like previously, what should I change there to oc it to 6970 clocks?

    Add -xcl to the Afterburner shortcut then open AB and reboot at the prompt. This will give you increased clock limits.
