Have you tryed re-seating the power pin on your mother board or even if it is on properly?

Dont worry about it have you just tryed re-seating every thing? Sounds like its something from your motherboard rather then the power supply.

I think you need to reapply some thermal paste on the CPU. Thermal features can turn the PC off if it's too high.

it shouldn't heat up to that point, that quickly, should it...?
