    Hey my name is Christian and recently i both a new cpu for my Pc. Its the AMD FX 8350. For this Cpu i also got myself a new CPU fan. The Artic Freeze Extr. Rev 2.
    So first things first i'm not a native english speaker so please excuse my writing.
    But now my problem. I installed all Hardware and it "works". The Fan is spinning, Cpu works fine as well.
    But after 1-2 minutes my system just shuts down. In my second try i entered the BIOS and saw that my CPU Temp was rising all the way to 80C (176F). I put the Thermal Paste, dunno what it is called in english , on the Cpu and scewed my Cpu Fan on it.

    I am currently really frustrated and don't know what i can try.
    I hope some of u can help me:)

    You either did a not quite good enough job of applying the thermal paste, didn't get the heatsink seated properly, or got a defective CPU.
    Watch this (I do it a little differently; but, he seems thorough and make sure you remove all of the old stuff if you redo it!)

    Most new coolers have a cover on the heatsink to protect the contact pad. Ensure that you have removed that cover.

    Also, double check the installation and ensure you have the HS properly attached to the motherboard/cpu.

    Sorry, I see you have the extreme version not the Pro. Looks like it can be a pain to get those AMD clips hooked, looks like you have to take the fan out of the middle to clip it. Search Youtube for this
