Question about ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 - Motherboard - micro ATX - i945GC - LGA775 Socket - UDMA100, Serial ATA-300 - Eth...
I got a new Pentium D 2.8 Possessor socket 775 but when I put it into the board it booted, overheated, then shut down.
Are you sure it overheated or did the power kick off and your fans stopped spining. Sometimes your mobo can shortout on the backside from screws that are too tight or are incorect in length.

Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.
Good luck oilian!
