CPU support list for the motherboard you have.

Thanks. Looks like I made a mistake while choosing the parts.
My PC ran fine though, but does this mean that since the motherboard is unable to provide the necessary wattage to the processor, it won't work at it's full potential?
That is exactly correct.
The Motherboard is not able to provide enough power to your CPU.
I would certainly limit the usage of your computer for now as this may damage the processor due to the limited power.
You need a better motherboard, go find a AMD 970 based board, they will gave what you need and your CPU will like it
