What happens when you press F1?
Did you replace the fan only or the whole CPU cooler? And what did you replace it with?
How is the new fan connected to the motherboard?

sounds like the motherboard isnt detecting your cpu fan replacement.

If one isnt detected it does that error so you do have an overheating problem.
