GTX 560 Ti SLI Problem

I have 2x GTX 560 Ti Running on SLI configuration. I am running one card at 824 MHz and the other sits at 50 MHz.
I am wondering if there is a problem with it or this is how SLI works.
I saw the sticky on SLI and CF but being there was 100+ pages I was just not able to read them all. I did read up to 7 pages and learned some things.
I just though SLI would split the job evenly so it doesnt max out on one card and the other just sit and do nothing.

I was told to put as much information as i can sooo umm..

My build:
ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011
Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4x4) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)
120GB SSD
2x EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB

BIOS: 2002
graphics driver: 301.42
Any other questions ask please.

The second card is running in standby mode. It isn't being used so it more or less shuts itself off to conserve power and keep heat down. As soon as you load up a 3D application (or other GPU demanding program) it should speed back up to normal.

Yes I am. Because the secondary now picks up some and I see it more to 450 Mhz. It didnt before.
