It does seem a shame (I'm sure i'm not the only one that's noticed) that even though a card's destined for physx use, it still stays clocked at 3d clock speeds 24/7. I really wish they'd work on that and let it clock down until needed. That might help alot with the keeping the power consumption and heat down.
You could underclock it with MSI afterburner or EVGA percision which would consume less power......
