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 tried to be polite and to the point but if you insist...you sound like a weirdo on this stuff. It's a videocard, not your girlfriend. AMD has a paid marketing department and this isn't a battle or something, there's no need to get all weird about defending a brand. Look its pretty simple, stop making assumptions that everyone else doesn't somehow have your "experience" with these things and that anything negative about AMD is a "misunderstanding". Another example being that I have "no interest" because I said something you don't like. I have significant experience with AMD/ATI products, perhaps even more than you. That doesn't mean I don't have a critical eye for problems on either side of the fence.

Being completely unwilling to listen or change is not exactly a stance I would trumpet either. Anyways I'm moving onto other threads so whatever. I posted that because in the past I found you to be reasonable. If you don't want to listen to it then fair enough.
