    DO you mean you just updated (flashed) your BIOS to a new build? If so I think you will be better off re-configuring your BIOS chip manually. The new BIOS coding may have different reactions and limits to settings that may be different than the previous BIOS. I don't know for sure if loading from a saved profile can work or if it may just cause problems. I wouldn't think it would do any more damage that a clear CMOS couldn't fix.

    Hey buddy.. like SolidEther is correct. It is not advised to load a profile from a older bios version. One bios might not have a setting that exist in the other bios so things can get messed up. Also changes may have been done to enhance compatibility or stability there fore requiring less voltage or even need more voltage.

    You can reuse settings from a old bios but only if you manually enter then in but then retest for stablity.

    acebmxer,

    I take it your turning and burning on that 6950 and that was your upgrade? Aren't the 6900's great, dude? I am very amazed by the Sapph HD6970 (2GB)ver. card. It so noticeably shows its power over my previous sapph HD4870x2 and I though that was a great card and it can't keep up with the single GPU on the 6970.

    DO you know about that there is a mod that allows a "safe" BIOS change to convert a 6950 to a 6970, they are the same chip just that 6950s are gimped in BIOS a few quick changes and BOOM you have a 6970. I don't know if they allow posting those types of instructions here, but if your interested let me know...

    Yes the card is great. I got the HiS 6950 from the weekly givaway that tweaktown had I was using a Nvidia 470.

    I have already tried to unlock my 6950 to a 6970 but my card is too new and it is lasar locked and can not be unlocked by the bios. But still is a great card. There are a couple different ways you can try to unlock your card. Flashing it with a different bios, using a script to unlock your bios or using RBE to edit your own bios. I tried the later 2 option and no luck.
