You may not have a good THERMAL connection between the Processor and the Heat Sink? This does sound like an overheating issue.

Check out:

1. Heat Sink not on backwards...causing a less than FLUSH contact?

2. Thermal Paste OR Pad on appropriately? Replace the pad after removing the Sink!

3. Fan running at proper speed?

4. Is the Power Supply fan running?

Does the bootup reach the BIOS point or shut off within seconds of power on period?
