The "Reduce CPU/GPU" is in the Trouble Shooting section of STO's Video options tab, the same as the other 2 options I mentioned.
As for temp reduction I don't know. I never got to the point where my GPU overheated. I could literally hear the fans ramp up in my case as soon as I got to STO's character selection screen (computer sounded like a jet engine) so I immediately knew 2.0 did something "bad" and terminated the game ASAP. After terminating the game I did my research to figure out what was changed and bug reported it while 2.0 was still Tribble only.
Last, my nVidia card is a GeForce 9800 GT using driver version 6.14.0011.9745 dated 4/3/2010 though I believe the latest July 2010 driver release is good as well.
