Automatic Shutdown: CPU Very Hot!
well, i took alot of different forums advice on building a comp..and..well, i did it okay it seems except for one thing. the **** thing shuts off automatically. i checked cpu temp and it said 100 degrees C. lol this cant be right! the cpu heat sink/fan i believe is on right. its an intel fan/heat sink that came with the e6400 core two duo. its weird actually cause its like the fan doesnt really click in right. or each one clicks ok and then another will come out a little. i dont like it thus far. anyway, before i finally turned it on for the first time tonite, i made sure the fan/heat sink was in securely and it was. it didnt rock or move or anything.
please help! i dont know what else it could be
ram: corsair 1gb ddr2 533mghz value ram x 2
power: 430 watts.
no PCI devices installed yet.
one IDE ATA drive, one SATA drive.
no O/S yet.
i was hanging out in the bios when suddenly it shut off. it seems to stay on for about 10 minutes and then, poof.
