There are a couple of possibilities 1: was TIM (thermal interface material) applied correctly, see the tutorial courtesy of Digerati http://www.geekstogo...rface-material/ 2: has the heatsink and fan been fitted correctly 3: is the cooling system in the case adequate (intake and extraction fans) 4: is the power supply functioning correctly.
Post back telling us a bit more about you PC to give us a better idea of what to suggest.

Couple of things for you to do for us so that we can check your temps and voltages, see below;

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

Then download and run HWMonitor http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html and again provide a screenshot;

To capture and post a screenshot;
Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload...
then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Screenshot instructions courtesy of happyrock :thumbsup:

This suggests that either there is inadequate TIM applied or the CPU fan and heatsink may be fitted incorrectly.
Did you read the tutorial http://www.geekstogo...rface-material/ and can you confirm that you applied TIM correctly.
At this time I suggest that you do a barebones set-up outside of the case and start afresh, do you know how to do this?

Are you sure the CPU fan is even spinning? If the fan is spinning, and you applied TIM (or used the factory applied pad), then it sounds like to me the heatsink is not properly mounted.

Just a though, most factory applied TIM pads have a plastic protective cover to protect the pad from being scratched during shipping and handling. Did you peel that off?

I don't know what you mean there.

Are you saying the CPU and the CPU's heatsink fan assembly were already mounted on the motherboard when you got it? If so, the heatsink may have been knocked loose during transport.
