Make sure the heatsink is properly seated on the CPU. If that is not the problem then you will need a new fan.

The bearing may be failing in the fan motor causing the noise, there could be a restriction in the air flow thru the radiator too.

Hard Drive keeps revving???

What do you mean by revs? The noise gets increasingly louder? I doubt you should be hearing the hard drive. It may be a fan that changes under load or temperature. Have you contacted the manufacturer or the repair facility to inquire about this issue? Otherwise if you know someone with the technical capability. I would take the case off and you should easily be able to distinguish then if it's the fan or the drive. Do you know what fan it was that needed to be replaced? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
