I've not come across that PSU brand, and your work-around also suggests an issue with the PSU. Can you try replacing the PSU and seeing what happens?

The wattage looks fine for your build. Best to try another PSU to see if it's the issue and, if so, then replace with a known brand like Seasonic, XFX or Corsair.

You won't want to go lower than that, but it should be fine. Check the following link out if you want to make sure - it's a wattage calculator for your system.
