GTX 660 Ti load problems?

Hello! Im having an odd problem with my EVGA GTX 660 Ti SC 3GB.

Issue: Playing games i.ex. CS:GO gives me between 100-220ish fps. For some reason my GPU refuses to go above 50%ish load in game even tho the FPS restriction in game has been removed completely. So I tried overclocking to see if it would help squeeze out a few extra frames, the end result was me getting the same FPS because the GPU usage went down even more after overclocking. Keeping the same frame rates.

Raising graphics makes the GPU utilization go up, and it keeps the exact same FPS frame, however this isn't what im after.

I've tried disableing the GPU boost and forcing it to a steady core speed. This didn't make a difference either.
So I guess my question would be: Why is my GPU refusing to go up in load for more FPS instead of sticking around 50%, and can I fix it?

CPU: i5 2500K @ 4,2ghz
Mobo: MSi P67A
RAM: Corsair Dominator 8Gig @ 1600Mhz
PSU: Corsair VX 550W
GPU: EVGA GTX 660 Ti 3Gb SC

Thanks in Advance!

Edit: All the temps are also fine.

    you are playing cs:GO which doesn't require much gpu power that's why it doesn't go 99% load

    Then why am I still dipping down to low FPS when the GPU is capable of more?
