You need to list the brand and make of your PSU

Running fast is not related to the PSU directly though. what is your motherboard model? How do you determine that your card is not running at its full speed?

Throw that out as fast as possible, one of the worst PSU's it probably cant deliver 36Amps. Consider yourself lucky it hasn't fried any of your components yet. I had a RAIDMAX PSU once, I also had an expensive motherboard once, but the RAIDMAX PSU decided to kill it, and itself.

Throw out that PSU!

To calculate watts do 12 x 36 = 432, but that PSU wont deliver that 432 watts.

My previous car is a GTX 660 and I upgraded my PSU and my GFx card My GFX card is now an R9 280 from MSI. In AOD I can see the graphics card stays at 1.25 V and GPU-Z says the same thing. So I figured it isnt getting all the power it need and it is sucking all the power it can because GPU-z Shows it at 100% Usage. Also the 280 s better that the 660 and i get worse frames.

1.25v is the GPU core, that's good. it doesn't run at 12v it steps down 12v to 1.25,

Still throw out that PSU and buy an XFX or Seasonic or Corsair.
