It's your CPU, you need to overclock it.

Yup, your cpu can't keep up.

You don't need more than 750w from a quality power supply unless you intend to run 2 gpu's.

if your psu 550w is from a decent brand then no its not the psu.
That cpu is worse than a intel pentium g850 so it could be it.
Or also the drivers from amd.
