Also make sure you put the right amount of thermal paste on it, not enough is bad and to much is also not good, any excess paste leaking on the motherboard can cause issues.
Does your Processor fan seem to be turning properly (speed).

Make sure your case has adequate front to back air flow. I generally recommend at least one (preferably large) fan in front drawing cool air in, and one fan (excluding the PSU fan) in back exhausting hot air out.
Also note that once the TIM (thermal interface materials) cures - which typically takes a couple days and 1/2 dozen heat/cool cycles, when you break the cured bond you MUST thoroughly clean the mating surfaces and apply a new fresh layer of TIM. See my canned text on applying TIM.
Other potential causes for system crashes could be bad RAM, bad motherboard, or bad or stressed power supply.
