New CPU Overheating?

My boyfriend helped me put together a new computer consisting of :
CPU INTEL|CORE I5 2400
MB ASROCK|H61M H61
VGA POWERCOLOR|AX6790 1GBD5-DH
PSU ANTEC|BP500U 500W RT
MEM 2Gx2|KST KVR1333D3K2/4GR
and
HD 500G|HITC SATA 3.0Gb/
However, when I got it all loaded up with windows & everything it started shutting down without any warning first it took 10 minutes form startup and then less than 5 minutes from startup. The BIOS screen says that the Processor temperature is 94 degrees Celsius and the 2nd temperature reading that follows says it's 32 degrees Celsius, is that normal? What can I do to stop it from overheating?

    else change the Thermal paste applied for processor and heatsink with proper guidance
