AMD Crimson Drivers Issue

AMD's new reference drivers are presumably not named "Crimson" because they make cards red hot, but there are lots of users reporting overheating problems using them. There are even some saying this has killed their GPUs outright, as shown in this reddit thread, which says the drivers are locking fan speeds on some systems at 20% of maximum. A tweet from AMD acknowledges the issue, saying a hotfix is coming today: "We are aware of low fan speed reports on select GPUs with Radeon Software Crimson Edition. We intend to publish a hotfix on Monday." In the meantime, this reddit post (thanks Softpedia) offers a workaround on how to perk up your fans. Thanks HARDOCP.

I've rarely had issues with ATI/AMD drivers and I've been using them on and off since the X1900 days. The only time I have a problem is when I install a new set and forgot to run the installer as admin which causes some to not install.

However, much can be said about their driver delivery in regards to newly released titles and how they seem to drag their ass. Took them, what, nearly a week to pull Fallout 4 out from the gutter?
