Even after replacing the stock one for this, I'm still having a problem with the fan running at max RPM. Looking at SpeedFan, it runs at almost 3300 RPM. I really don't know what to do now, or what's causing this. I've checked the BIOS and reset the settings to default, but it's not changed a thing. All help appreciated!

Check your bios. There should be an option for cpu fan speed. Also, what are your temperatures like?
