Question about Computers & Internet
When computers shut down like this they are getting the signal from the motherboard. This is most likely a thermal shutdown signal from the processor. When you changed the fan, did you clean the processor off and apply a small thin layer of thermal paste? The processor may not be cooling properly or the motherboard is getting a bad signal from the processor's thermal circuit. Try new thermal paste on the processor and then go through the board again and make sure everything is in its place. Also, leave the side panel off and see if the system stays running, this will aid in the cooling. Let us know if it works, if not we may have more ideas to help.
