Windows 7: [URGENT ] [HELP NEEDED] Computer turning off FANS full speed

[URGENT ] [HELP NEEDED] Computer turning off FANS full speed

Hey there, i changed my computer case about 3 days ago, all went well, only a few minor issues that were fixed, PC was running fine all day today, went out then when i came back turned it on and all is fine, after about an hour i decided to start a game (League of legends) all was fine until the loading screen came up, suddenly i heard my computer fan getting faster and faster and louder, before i knew it the fan is running extremely fast and the PC just shutdown instantly.

Now whenever i try to boot the PC the motherboard beeps and windows will load, but the fans are going at maximum speed, and again the PC will eventually just turn off after about 30 seconds (i believe its my GPU fan) i have tried replugging the wires and my graphics card but this has not worked.

Please help

It sounds like the system is overheating and shutting down.

I would check and make sure the CPU heat sink and fan are still properly attached and have not been knocked loose during the chassis change.
