Okies, as you can tell, I'm building my first computer:

EVGA nForce 750i SLI FTW
Pentium Dual-Core Processor E2200 2.2 GHz
GeForce 8800 GT 512 MB Graphics Card
1 TB WD HD
500 watt PSU

I started it up, adjusted my HD and CD-ROM cause I had them wrong. I happen to look at the BIOS stuff and noticed it said my CPU was like 90-100 C. It's acting like it's not being cooled at all. I have 2 fans on the case running. A 120 and a 140 mm. Not sure what's going on. After like 5 minutes, the system just shuts off without warning.

*FYI, I have no OS installed or anything right now, just getting the basic stuff straight here.*

What type Heatsink/Fan are you using?
Is the fan running?
Did you use thermal paste, before applying the heatsink to the processor?

I'm using the heatsink/fan that came with the CPU. Yeah, the fan is running. I didn't use any paste because the heatsink already had some on it.

Are you sure the heatsink and fan are firmly anchored to the motherboard and CPU? Have you tried reseating the heatsink?
