Update: Things Suddenly Got Much Better!

I've had the 100%GPU use and thunderous fan noise, but now its all better. Here's what changed:

Yesterday I uninstalled and deleted the Cat drivers. I then re-installed the latest Cat drivers. I then set everything in CCC to "application controlled" and disabled the intelligent AA. I logged into STO and "WALLAH!" - fan noise back to normal under load, GPU usage 60-90%. Game ran very smoothly on high vid settings w/o shadows but with occlusion and 200% detail.

Maybe the patch changed something. Whatever... the card is now back to normal.
