D530S CPU Fan revs up, computer shuts down

Hi
I just installed a d530S today, as I was configuring software the cpu fan started to rev up at a higher and higher rpm then the computer shut down completely.
I rebooted it and it did the same thing again.
Then it seemed to work fine.
Its a stock model: 2.8mhz, 1 meg ram ,40 gig HD, no pci card.

since it is new i thought maybe the heat sink was not seated correctly but it looked ok

maybe the silicone paste is dried out?

where is the heat sensor on the cpu or on the sink?

any ideas, although it is working fine now I lost my confidence in this unit. I will be going back to that site on Thursday and try out any ideas you may have.

thanks
