When you turn it on, are there any beeps? Does it post at all, what do you see happen on the screen? Can you get it to even stay on long enough to boot into safe mode?
I need more info...

What we are looking for is Thermal Shutdown for the CPU it shoud be set to around 80 degrees, depending on your CPU.
Try the CPU in another board if poossible, CPU's can be damaged by heat but in my experience they are pretty tuff.
Have you reset the BIOS? might be worth a go.
Also check your power supply.
If the PC is shutting down because the CPU is actually overheating then it should be obvious.

are you refering to the cpu fan or the case fan?
it could be a heating issue but unless your case temp is very high it's probably related to hardware.
are you receiving any beep codes? if so what is the sequence and what bios are you using

they are rare but they do exist
Small fans are much more likely to fail but i don't know about breaking the blades on a north bridge fan or how you would accidently do that.
I just assumed he meant his CPU fan.

does bios load? eny errors? if so what does it say. any beeps? if so what sequence.
you should post you pc hardware specifications (ie. like my sig, just make sure it's up to date )

With what you describe it could be cpu overheat, what happens is your motherboard senses that the cpu is getting hot and turns it self off to prevent damage.
There are a couple of things that can cause this but with you replacing the fan and I am assuming it was the cpu fan you have to make sure you connected the fan wirer to the same place the original fan was connected if not this will cause the shutoff.
Also make sure the heatsink, the "fin thing" as you said is not loose in any way as this also would cause the shutdown
