I just got my bro's extra EVGA GTX 570 classified and still want to use my GTX 460 to drive my second monitor and for any Physx games. The problem I have is that the GTX 460 is only supposed to drive the second monitor, but when I fire up a game it goes to full clock speeds even though its not really doing anything. Is there any way to make sure it stays completely underclocked while in games. Right now I have its clock speeds manually @ 405 core/900 mem(1800). I wanna do this because if I hook up my two monitors to the GTX 570 it won't downclock all the way in windows and get hot for no reason.

Does the game you're playing use PhysX? If it does, it's probably why. If not, just disable it in the hardware manager when you're not using it.
