note: the OS isn't even on it yet

at first, it would boot and stay on.. then it would boot for 5 seconds and then restart.. now it restarts after 1/2 seconds

i7 2600k
HD 6970 crossfire
G. skill 2x 4GB= 8GB 2130mhz RAM in slots 1 & 3
NH- D14 cpu cooler
AX1200 corsair PSU

what is going on?

this is my first build :cry:  :cry:

could this be over heating because if i leave it off for 10 min i can boot for 6 sec again.

did i apply the thermal paste wrong?

in BIOS, my cpu temp is 28C.. is that bad for the NH- D14; if it is, then i probably need to reapply the arctic silver 5

28C at idle is ok. My i5 is around 25-28C @ 4Ghz

thermal compound cooled so i get 23-25 idle depending on the speed of my fans, set to max now so 23 but loudish
