Have a look at the fan. Does it look damaged in any way? Is the fan obstructed in any way (IE something blocking airflow on either side of the cooler, even if only slightly)? Also, can you describe the noise? Is it abnormal in any way other than how loud it is?
It doesn't looked damaged. The fan is a little obstructed by the RAM, but only by MAYBE a millimeter. The noise sounds like a normal fan, just spinning really quickly. And since it's spinning quickly, it's fairly loud. I believe the Evo 212 only goes up to 2,000 RPM, and mine sits at 1,800 RPM after I only startup.
