    Make sure that all the cables from the case to the motherboard are correct

    Also check that the heatsink/fan is connected and plugged in on the processor. Generally the processor fan has a power cable running from the fan to the cpu fan header on the board.
    Without it the motherboard may think it's over heating and shutdown.

    Remove the heatsink/fan combo. clean it off, apply thermal grease, and then reseat the unit making sure it makes good contact with the cpu core.
