Hey, got a 6950 pushed it to 940 & 1375 on stock volts for Heaven's sake (I game at 920 & 1375) but crashes at 950. So I think i need more volts:

I haven't flashed to 6970 because I've read about people who've perma boned their cards doing so, is overvolting as risky?
As a OC noob just how safe is overvolting?

Using MSI AB 2.1.0 and cat 11.2 (is 11.4 out yet) and I'd like to know what voltage people have been safely using.

I know there's an official 6950 OC thread here but i can't find it anymore so started my own, if you can redirect me that'd be great.

Over volting is just like over clocking. I would flash the card. Its a sticky in the graphics card section. And it seems safe enough because of the way the bios is.
