Sounds as if you have a temp problem. More than likely the cpu is getting too hot.
After it cools off the system will come back alive.
Have you checked the hs/fan installation? Sometimes something can get between the core and the hs on one edge, this will cause a lot heating problems.
If you used the factory heat sink, did you remove the scotch tape from the thermal compound before installing the hs/fan to the cpu?
All of have done this from one time or other.
What type of compound did you use if not the OEM fan and hs?
How much did you put on the core, did you also spread a very thin layer on the hs?
How many fans do you have as intake, exhaust, etc?
You simply must have a very good airflow from the front to the rear of the case and over the components in the case, for things to work like they should.
