20 minutes after the camera still can't shoot any HQ content, so it seams the problem lies in the card and its heat control that somehow blocks the camera, unfortunatly I dont have two cards to play a bit more with it.So I've done another test, I took my sandisk CF-express 256gb card filled it full capacity and done a transfer of all the files to my MacBook pro which made it really hot to the tuch also reduced the speed of the transfer after I tried to put something back to it. The most interesting thing was the fact that I could not use any HQ modes on my R5 that was siting since last night on my desk in a shaded room. It seams that definitely the problem with overheating comes from the cf-express card and the communication of the camera with it.
Well The problem is canon gives certain number of cameras to their ambassadors, and maybe the number of those units is not enough to colect all the data, now with more units out in real life scenarios there will be more data about the camera and how it works.This feels like the web's collective effort to figure this out, just like when Everybody in the world was searching for MH370.
