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.

How am I being 'weird' by having a critical opinion? I'm not cussing people out, calling them 'retards' or 'faggots' or whatever. I'm not personally attacking anyone. I'm not taking any criticism of AMD 'personal', I've just found, in the past, that many people who have a negative opinion of AMD/ATI haven't actually used a Radeon card at all. They just go by news stories and forum posts and all of a sudden, they're 'experts'.

Listen, I'm not saying you, in particular, don't know what you're talking about and don't have 'experience'. My post wasn't directed at you personally. I'm not chomping at the bit, trying to bash my opinion into any orifice in people's skulls that it'll fit. On the contrary, I'm actually extremely calm. I'm sorry that that doesn't seem to show in my posts. If someone says something about a subject I have a lot of time and effort spent on, I'm going to be critical of it. I'm going to call into question whether that person knows what they're saying or if they're just trolling. I'm an ATI (and, grudgingly, by extension, AMD) fanboy, I've stated this many times. No, this doesn't give me free reign to say anything, attack anyone and generally be a zealot. My stance has actually moderated quite a bit from the past. I try to be understanding, and as you said, reasonable. I ask questions, I state facts and I refute assumptions. I don't attack people. (well, ok, lets say I certainly try not to, I'm not perfect ) I see the nVidia vs. AMD debate as more like being the fan of a football team (or any sports team really). You're passionate about your team, you trumpet their strengths and kinda just push their weaknesses under the rug. I've never said AMD was perfect, they definitely are not. Their CPU business is shit. Their SSD and PSU businesses are shit. But the videocards...the videocards I like. Probably because it's really ATI and their design foundations and not really AMD's. I don't like nVidia's way of doing business and I'm still sore over 3dfx all these years later. You think I'm bad with AMD? You should have seen me in the 3dfx days!
