Answers :

First clean the fans out - these get clogged pretty easily.
\015\012If it gets stuck where you cant turn it off - hold down the power button for 5 seconds.
\015\012
\015\012Hopefully the system hasnt been overheating for so long it has damaged the CPU or motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012If the fans are clean and it still does it, you may have a bad stick of ram or the mainboard you bought may have problems.
\015\012I would inform the company you got the mainboard installed that it is having problems right away in case you dont have much time left in warranty.
