Down-clocking wouldn't help, I don't think. Are you having problems running Starcraft 2?

Please explain your issue more clearly using proper grammar..... and don't not never use double negative.

Yes, it isn't not hard to read.

Another question: is VSync on? It could be your GPU doesn't have to work at 100% to produce 60fps.

ever thought of that SC2 doesn't require 100% of your video card? It isn't really that demanding of a game, and the GTX 460 is no slouch.

if you are able to play SC2 in max settings smoothly...then why you worrying about your gpu load?

Pop in BF2 or metro 2033 if you want to see 100% usage...by then you be asking OCN how come my computer isn't using 100% cpu LOL...

Yeah, but unless heat is an issue, I don't see the point... ?

i am kinda lost.
first, you will never see 100% use on your GPU, it will max around 98-99% bottleneck or not.
second, a 460 will not have any issues at all with SC2. SC2 is more of a CPU intensive game.
third, if you have a stable OC at 4.2 with a 955 you will eat SC2 alive.

i just thought that as long as i keep gpu at 100% then i would have the same performace if i down clocked my cpu

That is not true at all...downclocking will decrease performance regardless in a CPU intensive game like SC2
