My computer over heats then shuts down minutes after booting

I have a desktop that was just working fine, however recently it developed a problem and shuts down upon diagnosis I realized that it was overheating. what could be the problem? I can see from the status diagnosis that the fan is just working fine so I ruled out the fan, can any other thing cause the computer to overheat rather than the fan?

HELLO
 
You need to check out the CPU temperature .It may be your thermal compound has been gone off and your heat sink has come down. 
You will need to reset your heat sink and then to paste the thermal for re apply.
If you had  paste thermal , clean the old stuff and put the rice grain of amount in middle of CPU then down the heat sink squarely onto the CPU.
Any time you pull the heat sink. You will need to clean and apply the thermal paste. You will get the solution.

If you say the status of your fan is fine but your processor is overheating then your fan is not fine. If a processor keeps on overheating, it means the cooling fan is not working properly. The main job of the CPU cooling fan is to lessen the heat created by the processor at a certain level as it operates.

If your cooling fan doesn’t create a loud noise as it operates, check if you can change its spin rate in the BIOS. Restart your computer then press DEL, DELETE, or F2 to go to the BIOS. In the BIOS, look for the section where the CPU cooling fan option is located.

Here, try to adjust or increase the cycle or spin rate of the fan if it is available. On the other hand, if there is not a single option available for the CPU cooling fan, it would be best to just replace it with a new one.

A brand new CPU cooling fan will function or operate at its optimum speed which can surely provide enough ventilation or cooling effect for the processor.
