I'm guessing that since this is a forum revolving around a community of people doing graphically intensive things on a daily basis, it might be a good idea to put a warning here.

The recently released AMD drivers, Crimson, have a variety of issues pertaining to automatically setting the fan speed to be very low (most reports are at 20%, but there are reports as low as 0%), causing a number of people to have their GPUs overheat and die while doing graphically intensive things.

AMD have committed to a fix for Monday:

If you are having this problem, here is the temporary fix:

If this was NVidia, they would have found it earlier and only committed a change when people complained about it. Then the linux driver would take months to find the error and years to fix it. Emo
