Your motherboard may have a feature that is designed to prevent processors from frying themselves. Some computers will shut off if there is no fan connected to the CPU FAN
header on the motherboard or the fan speed (RPM) is too slow.
- Make sure the fan has a yellow wire (which indicates that it monitors RPM's).
- Make sure that the fan specs list the fan of having more than 3000 RPM's.
