My crossfire setup is suddenly shutting down for a few seconds when the topcard hits 90 degrees. It never did that before. It happens while playing far cry 3. I played the game in the past and I remember getting toptemps around 92 on the topcard, but it never shut down on me? Now it's all of a sudden shutting down for a few seconds all the time. Played around with fanspeeds, didn't work out. Is this due to new drivers? Anybody know a way to disable/customize this protection system?

at 90c they should not shutdown, they can go over 100c without going down. I have a 6870 myself.

Not sure what the issue could be.

I'm clueless myself. Can't think of anything else than a change in drivers or something. Running catalyst 13.4 atm. It just takes a few secs cooldown-time when it hits 90 and restarts the screen and I can play again untill it hits 90 again.
