GPU usage never 100% (7970)

I'm not sure if this is a problem, but my GPU usage, in any of the games I play is never 100%, it's always < 75%. Highest usage I saw was in Skyrim, at 77%. At the same time, I monitored my CPU usage, which is also never greater than 50% (i7-3770K)

Full system spec
i7-3770K @ 4.6GHz
Radeon 7970 GHz Edition (1075 / 1500)
MSI MPower Z77
8GB DDR3 @ 2400MHz
240GB SSD + some hdd storage.

Why do you want your GPU to be 100% used? If it doesn't need to - it won't. Also, this isn't an issue. Mine never goes above 80% (GTX 630)

i have a 7970 ghz

think the only time i see 100% gpu usage is when i run software that leverages the gpu compute power to do

Unless you have it modded, Skyrim is much more CPU intensive than GPU. What kind of frames are you getting?
