Hello to all here. Setting up a new pc with a chaintech ct-7njl6 mobo. System starts but shutsdown in seconds. Twice it ran for 2 minutes got to setting up the drives and down she goes. Bios reports 1 beep correct cpu, ram, hds, fsb, etc. Fans run just keeps going off. Any ideas as to whats wrong.

My gut is heat....did you apply thermal grease to the heatsink before putting on the CPU? Perhaps a bubble/air pocket is trapped between them
