KX3 Transmit Time

My KX3 does not like the 2 minute transmit length and continually overheats at about 1 1/2 minutes at 5 watts, even with my 100 watt amp enabled but still only transmitting at 5 watts of course. Is there a way to limit the transmit time to 1 minute vs 2 minutes. WSPR works fine with the K2 and K3 at two minute transmits, but not the KX3. I understand there are some after-market heat sinks out there for the KX3 to use with digital modes, but I am reluctant to buy one when the factory one should suffice. Thanks you Ron KM4VX
