What does it say in the motherboard book about the LED's?Do you have the BIOS set to shut down if it gets too hot?Can you even get into your BIOS?You didnt get thermal paste on anything else but the chip did you?You have to keep it neat or you can short out the CPU.Is it seated good.Check your ram to make sure its seated good also.
