Crimson sets fan speed to fixed percentage and causes overheat

I have an AMD r9 290. I have the latest drivers installed, but I have an issue with crimson software.Every time I boot the computer, on the overdrive settings the fan speed it set to a default percentage, therefore causing overheating : the gpu goes up to 95++ degrees but the fans stay at like 15%.First of all how do I prevent this from happening.Second : nowadays we have fancy ways to throttle down components so as not to overheat and die, why can't the fans just go up to 90% automatically (no matter the settings) when they sense the gpu is overheating, or shouldn't that at least be an option ?Thanks in advance
