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)
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.
  2. Okay, So i am better off testing it to make sure. I only have been playing LoL and ... well thats all since i just built it last weekend. I will test it and follow up on it then. Thanks.
  3. alright i tested it and found out it was not working so i changed the physx option from my main GPU to my secondary. It is now working for both thanks guys.
  4. you sure.?
  5. Yes I am. Because the secondary now picks up some and I see it more to 450 Mhz. It didnt before.
  6. the optimal setting for PhysX is AUTO....
