Is it possible for a PK to a NC instead of being clustered. When I create a PK, it automatically gets created as Clustered.

thanks

Absolutely...by default sql makes it clustered unless otherwise specified

create table tablename(fld1 int not null, constraint pk_tablename primary key nonclustered (fld1))

In fact if you create a PRIMARY KEY constraint on a table that already has a clustered index then the PRIMARY KEY will automatically be created as a nonclustered index unless you specify otherwise.
