So I'm new to Einstein and I was wondering why it uses only from 65-75% of my GPU usage.

Is this normal or is there a ''trick'' to up the utilization? Currently @ 2100 MHz 35C

What program is telling you that? If it's Windows ignore it as it has no clue!! If it's something like MSIAfterburner than it's more reliable and could mean you could try running 2 tasks at once and see if they crash or not.

Most of the tasks on your

Most of the tasks on your host look to be the Gravitational Wave tasks. In this case, then yes what you are seeing is normal. GW tasks are basically bottlenecked by the CPU. 
 

if you observe the gamma ray tasks when they run you will most likely see higher utilization.
