Check the bios to make sure everything is set correctly. If it shuts off when in the bios double check that everything is securely plugged in and attached, mainly the heatsinks/fans. Make sure your cpu heatsink is attached properly, that is likely the problem. I'd take it off and reattach it.
Run the computer with the side off to make sure all the fans are spinning.
