Default New Build, shuts off after a few minutes

Just built a new system and got it running and everything. But now I have a problem. It'll stay on for awhile and I can go into BIOS and also start the process of windows installing. But after about 4 minutes or so, doesn't matter what I'm doing, it shuts off. What do you think is going on? I took out all the RAM but one stick and it didn't change the behavior.


Here's the specs:

Asus Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard
G-Skills Ripjaws 8 - 8GB sticks
Intel i7 3930k Six-Core Processor
Thermaltake 10 Case
Two 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drives
Corsair Force3 240 GB Solid State Hard Drive
LG Blu-Ray Burner
Corsair 850W Power Supply
Nvida Geforce GTX 680
Corsair H100

cpu says +80

Maybe my cooler isn't working correctly?

Is that Celsious? Cause yha, your cpu should be like 34C

Remount your cooler, make sure it is running.. You did plug in the pump, correct?

Got it running now?

The biggest tip off that heat was the 1st issue was that it ran for a short period of time...
