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 realize this is anecdotal, but I had my first ever red screen of death yesterday while running the Crimson drivers and the beta Fallout 4 patch.

I've been running a CrossFire setup for two years now and it's been...interesting. It's absolutely fantastic when it works, but ATI AMD seems to have intermittent driver issues, especially in relation to CF. Also, they were really slow to begin addressing framerate latency compared to Nvidia.
CF-issues, slow profile releases, CF missing in certain releases...
Unless there is a significant price/performance ratio, I think my next card purchase will be some type of SLI setup.

Still having that feeling that the drivers are a little jankey,
Ray
