I shouldnt have, you either have a thermal pad or thermal paste under the fan/on top of the CPU.

If it is paste, then i would suggest you buy some Artic Silver 5 and apply that. The purpose of this paste is to allow a good interface between the fan/heat sink and the cpu.

Did you replace just the fan? Or did you remove & replace the heatsink w/fan?

Frequently removing the fan only is enough to disturb the heatsink cpu interface enough to break the seal. Especially with thermal epoxy or pad compounds.

Is it plugged into the correct connector? In the correct orientation?
Was it working before the fan was removed?
