Specs: Windows 7
The cpu fan failure message popped up and then the cpu shut down. I went and bought a new cpu fan. Put it in. The cpu came on and then a few minutes later shut down. I blew all of the stuff out of all the areas. Tried it again. Then I just left off the side panel and it decided to stay on. Also I had pressed f2 while it was in bios and then it stayed on. Is that a bad thing or should I keep going

you must monitor the temps, it maybe that you need to reseat the cooling block and use fresh thermal paste, as it appears to be ok while the side panel is off, thus cooler.
download speedfan, its free and you can monitor the temps and fan speeds etc etc.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
