Default CX400W Overheating?

I've just bought Corsair cx400w and after 15 minutes of use it would shut down, if I turn on the computer again it would shut down after 1 minute. I had taken the psu outside of the case and it was working fine for 1 hour before I turned off the computer.
Could this be an overheating issue because the psu is top mounted and it's sucking hot air from the case.

Ambient temp is 18°C
CPU Idle Core1:34°C Core2:38°C
MB: 37°C
GPU: 41°C
HDD: 35°C

Your temps are fine, not a heat issue. Try the paperclip test in the FAQ.
