Change in r9 290 maximum target temps

Hi I recently updated my drivers to crimson and i noticed now the maximum target temperature for my r9 290 is 85 degrees istead of the old 95. I was wondering if this was intentional as now I get thermal throttling with the factory overclock of 1040 mhz even with a custom fan profile.

System info

Win10 64 bit


R9 290 windforce revision 1

I7 4770k

8gb 1600 mhz corsair vengeance


Airflow is in a zalman z11 plus with 5 fans, 2 connected to the pay directly and the other 3 on mobo. They all appear to work


Many thanks
