Weird problem you have since it must be the OS?...........
Is it a clean install or upgrade from win 7 or 8?
There are only 3 drivers that's designed for Windows 8.1, 13.8sBeta, 13.10Beta and 13.9 WHQL (No frame fix on this whql so not good for crossfire, must be based of an older beta) . The said drivers works great with Windows 7.
Yes, it was fresh install. Must be a power saving issue or driver issue. But with a Windows 7 fresh install using the same drivers mentioned, no issues.

Yes reseated and even moved it to a different slot. Software that came with it is old and has no frame pacing drivers. You have to use at least 13.8.

Have you tested this under load, that is when temps are vital because that is when temps will move up.
Fir example if the card under gaming load is only hitting 60 to 70C and at idle staying at 50C then there is nothing to be massively concerned about, the card is not being damaged.
As for the fans turning off at idle check the fan profiles in the drivers, use a program like Trixx if need be to adjust them. This sounds to me like the fans have been altered in the drivers to allow for silent operation when at idle.
Actually no. His point is not valid. Again, as previously mentioned idle is at 60c-65c. Without the fan issue, the 2nd gpu is around those temps @ load when gaming BF3 and sits around 38c-40c Idle. So imagine if I leave my pc and the fan stops spinning, it's like I'm playing BF3 all day long? Huge difference...Edited by ukic - 9/22/13 at 11:40am
