The fan runs loud because of the heat . When you put in the new fan did you clean the heat sink ? Are all the vents clear the fan needs to be able to exhaust is the fan installed right way up is it blowing in the right direction.after reinstalling the cpu and gpu did you get them securely fasted down . There needs to be solid contact for heat to travel efficiently. Just some things to check hope it helps
