You need a different PSU. That only allows for one PCIe with a dongle and it can carry the proper amount of current on one line for that card. I'm using a Corsair RM750x, it has 4 X PCIe power ports and an 8 pin motherboard port. By spec a single line is only good for ~300W and 9A and you really want each carrying no more than 150W/7A. That card will use ~300W  and 14A or so. Try changing to a PSU with 750W and at least 2 x PCIe power ports. If that doesn't get it working, RMA the card. That's like trying to suck ice cream through a straw ! Corsair should be ashamed and know better than that.
