Your going to want a better PSU. The CX line is pretty low-end, and can't really deliver the advertised amount of power, so try an EVGA 650w or maybe something from seasonic, XFX, or another good brand.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html Here is a pretty good list. Raidmax is also a pretty low-end brand. not saying you need to get a platinum PSU, but getting a gold is usually a smart choice.
