Unfortunately, what you've described sounds like the classic symptoms of a bad cooler. There's not really much else that you can do. Between the quick heating of the CPU and the lack of an RPM reading to the fan header, there's not really anything else that it could be.

Your best option is going to be to return it to your reseller since it's new (right?). That'll be your quickest turnaround. If that's not an option (for whatever reason), head to the Support Ticket System to get it replaced.
