Also there is a fluctuation in the power that can be heard when you turn it on. I've tested all other components in other systems and they all work fine, so it's got to be the Chip or Mobo.
I'm really not sure how to proceed, other than sending both of those components back.
Check it out with another psu, the one you have is old 450watts
tell us the make and model by looking at the sticker on psu.
Also you said it automatically powers off right ?
How did you apply the grease to your new cpu ?
This is what I recommend:
Check and make sure you have heatink on correctly and the cord is pluged in cpu 3 pin socket not system fan.
