4870x2 here, I've not been monitoring my temps but this game certainly gets the fans going more than any other game I've played, even Modern Warfare 2. Bit strange considering this game isn't a massive graphically advanced one.
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.
Thank you VainEldritch,
I updated my drivers to the very latest ones and now the card runs normally
I did not change any settings though, just updated the drivers... even though mine were just a few months old, maybe it was already too much
Eh the fan is still loud... not as much as before but still loud. I hope they fix it
