So I recently moved my old computer to a new case. Everything went over well. Except now the CPU fan will throttle to 100% and shut down the entire computer. This ether happens after a few minutes of being running or after plugging in my PS/2 keyboard/mouse. all fans spin and all other things work.

External hardware usually only apply minimal stress to the CPU. Please tell me what your CPU is, that could be the problem. But there is also a second option...

Did you remove your cooler for the transfer? If you did, you should have put new thermal paste on the chip. No CPU can stay cool without thermal paste to transfer the heat from the chip to the heatsink.
