Re: Applied new thermal paste and now my computer automatically shuts off
How much thermal paste did you apply? Did you remember to clean the old stuff off first? Is your heatsink properly secured down?
Double check all power connections and components (e.g. RAM and PCI cards).
May also be a good idea to unplug all extra components other than 1 stick of RAM and (if you don't have an onboard GPU), your GPU.
If it still doesn't boot, you can try removing your motherboard from your case, hooking up basic components again, lay the motherboard on a piece of cardboard and try to boot up outside of the case in case something on the mobo is shorting out.
