Go into your BIOS and see what your internal temperatures are. Report what the numbers are as soon as you start it and after 10 minutes idling. If the CPU temperature especially climbs fast or is over 90c, shut down FAST (while many CPU's can be run over 90c for short periods of time, this is idle and I assume not an extreme overclock, so this is not good). If your CPU temperature is actually very high and your fans are turning at a reasonable RPM, you will need to reseat your CPU heat sink (replace thermal compound) since it may have become unseated (maybe just one loose lock down). Report back all temp readings, fan rpm, and voltage readings for additional help. SpeedFan can give you much of these readings in windows, but not if you cannot keep it running.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
