Installed new MB-i5-750-how hot should it get if only running 10 sec?

Here is the situation. I installed a new Gigabyte P55 MB with an i5-750. It initially worked fine from the first boot. I noticed it was running a little hot so I installed a new case fan (not a new CPU fan). It did not boot up after that..even after I put old fan in..I also put my old AMD MB back in and that booted fine so it's not the PSU.

I am wondering-how quickly does a processor heat up? It feels HOT to the touch after just turning off and one for a brief period . Not sure if oveheating is the issue-I do not even get to the bios screen..

Not sure what else to try here,

  1. Is it shutting down right away? Did you check the paste on your HSF? Is it sufficient?

    Run HW Monitor or Speedfan and report the temps back to us.
