Maybe at beginning some simple things to check:
dust on coooler's fins
fan rpm
air circulation in chasis
remove one GPU to improve air circulation.

Laptop temps, are something i know quite good.
All cooling pads are very ineffective if there is no space under and above fans.
This is why i have removed fans (60mm) from cooling pad and put them behind laptop blowing from behind to front. In same time i have rised laptop for 3cm aft and 2 fore. Thanks to that air flow under laptop is really big - cooling my hands as well :)
But more important thing is to keep coolers clean - usually I just blow them with my lungs 2 a month.
Additionally it's not bad idea to remove covers of HDD and CPU-GPU - it will reduce temps as well.
Next thing - reduce voltage. One of my laptop (really old one C2D T5500) i have undevoltaged from 1,2 to 0,95V full stable (under Win XP software Rightmark CPU clock utility - on others systems i have no idea).
BTW You should reduce use at most CPU to 88% this will set one core free.

Update:
It really helped. 5 hrs ago I have returned to MSI afterburner and it keeps all values.

Update:
ASUS tweak makes still same problem, but I noticed that freq drop is after 10 minutes...so I changed power setting for monitor to "never off".
And no mo problems (for now).

Had similar problem. On my ASUS 7950 GPU freq started to jump ~ 650 MHz (only on Milkyway).
I had CCC and MSI Afterburner. Both were causing problems.
I solved problem by installing ASUS tweak utility. It is not so good as MSI, but it's stable.

OK, I'll have to make some updates to my app_info files for the hosts I have on the anonymous platform.

<edit>BTW, is there a reason why there isn't a 32 bit version of MWSMF for Winboxes?

So use app_config instead of app_info.
It will download new versions of app itself.

Thanks. This must be the reason as i use BAM and really i changed resources.

Why every few days this option changes to "YES" - it's frustrating when my CPU starts to crunch Milky. It has other issues.
If it was already on forum - sorry: coudn't find.

Are results valid comparing to official app?
Also - aren't You affraid of next "no support for Milky..." as before?
