    My Sapphire HD6950 Dual Fan (also sold as Dirt3 Ed) came with shaders already unlocked in the backup BIOS. First I thought I had gotten a used card, but it turns out Sapphire actually did this on purpose, because a load of people who bought the same card found the unlocked shaders in the second BIOS.

    Thanks for the link, worked like a charm

    I ran the MSI Kompressor benchmark test with max settings at 1920x1080, and it didn't even hit 50 degrees with the fan running at an inaudible 25%
