Crsimon 16.12.1 causes GPU to overheat

After installing the new Crimson 16.12.1, my GPU ideal temps are like 50-60c, and when gaming it goes up to 75c+ which never happened before. Also after the 1st install and restart my screen went black before I sign to windows so I had to force restart.  Now I went back to 16.11.1 which seems the best one for my GPU, and anything after that causes problems and in games things are loading very slow.


My PC Specs:

CPU: AMD AMD Phenom(tm) 9950 Quad-Core Processor, 2600 Mhz

GPU: AMD XFX Radeon R7 360 1050MHZ 2GB DDR5

MB: Gigabyte M61PME-S2

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA P2 650W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular

OS: Windows 7 Prof. 64bit



I tried again after using AMD clean install utility, but same problem my GPU almost reached 80c.

Something I forgot to mention MSI afterburn cant detect my GPU temp.
