I just purchased parts from newegg.com to build a gaming computer. I just put it together last night, turned it on and everything seemed ok. While installing windows the computer shut itself off. It shuts itself off after about five minutes of being on. I checked to make sure everything was plugged in ok but I didn't see anything out of place. Any ideas why it shuts it self off after five minutes?

Check the CPU fan is spinning, most likely overheating.
