Recently I purchased an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ with a fan because i'm building my own computer. I have finished connecting all the devices however when i turn it on at first the CPU Fan works but then it stops after about 5 seconds. Then I pulled out the plug because i heard that CPUs can overheat very quickly.

Will it come back on?
Is this a problem?
If it is what should i do?

Well you need to make sure you plugged the CPU Fan into the CPU Fan header on the motherboard. You could try booting up for a couple more seconds, if it does the same thing, or doesnt even start contact amd or your reseller to get a new fan through RMA.
