I did this with my XFX 6950 a few days ago and have had zero issues! It runs a little hotter with the "overclock," but still perfectable acceptable temps.

Sweet. Thanks for the info. Probably gonna use this card in my upcoming build in February.

that should only affect overclock headroom, running the 6950 at a 250w tdp would be fine

I'm not for sure if it actually makes a differance, but the 6950 uses 2 6-pin connectors while the 6970 uses a 6-pin and 8-pin. Would anyone be able to clarify?
