I bought a bare bones kit, assembled it and booted it. Everything runs fine except for the fact that the CPU starts burning up immediately and my computer will shut down after 2min. Also from when i turn the computer on the data light comes on and stays solid. What could be my issue?

see do one thing check the cpu fan whether it is working properly and is not producing any noise if it is then probably you need to replace your cpu fan with a new one also makke sure that your power supply fan and chasis fan is working as excess heat gets generated in the system they remove it
to change the cpu fan
1.see it will depend on what kind of cpu socket you have pin or pinless
for pin-open the plastic clamp on the fan
for pinless -unscrew the heatsink
2.remove the heatsink and replace it it will be much better if you replace the full heat sink with a new one .also don't forget to put thermal grease compound for effivient heat transfer in between the cpu and the heat sink contact generally these days heat sinks come with pre-applied thermal componds but still it is recomended to apply it firmly over the cpu before installing the heat sink on it
3.if you wish to install the old heatsink by just replacing the top fan then replace the fan and rub the bottom of the heat sink with a sand paper to make it even and free from dust and oxide apply thermal compond and install it on the processor .plug bak the cpu fan header cable .
start your system it will stop overheating..
Franky_J knows nothing you could go for a P4 2.8 cpu which would work much better than the Celeron in fack any P4 over 2.0 would out perform the celeron if you want speed get rid of the Celeron and get a P4 it should take up to an 3.2 P4 chip.
Franky if you dont understand cpu's then you shouldn't really be answering this question in the cpu world a 2.8 ghz cpu is not always a 2.8ghz cpu for instance this one has half the cash of a P4 cpu meaning it can only do half the work at the same time so in P4 terms this is only a 1.8 P4 equivilent so a 2.8 P4 will be a big improvement.
When you say power is going to the mobo, are other fans and lights turning on? You also may have forgotten to plug in the large ATX power cord from the PSU, or the smaller 4-pin rectangular 12V power cord. Is the correct local voltage setting for your PSU selected (110 or 220)?
Hi have you cleaned the heatsink?
Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow.
Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in.
If all this fails replace your CPU.
I'm sorry to tell you but your cpu has probably fried. Your pc hanging a lot probably meant something was overheating and the fact that you say your cpu is not hot when you have the cooling fan off of it means it is probably the cpu.
When you first turn your system on without a cpu cooling fan, the cpu should be slightly warm, although I do not recommended running a cpu at all without a cooling fan or even touching it when it has power.
