Its most likely overheating. Check to see if your heatsink is on all the way, and did you apply thermal paste?

Edit: Also, when it boots up, go into BIOS and check the temps.

the bios dont tell me what the temperature is. The computer restarts after when it asks if i want to start the computer normally or safe mode, after i choose start normally it restarts and does the same thing. I switched my old processor back and it still does the same thing
