maybe the fan is not plugged in, or incorrectly placed, or you didnt use enough thermal paste, or too much thermal paste or the fan is broken or....

In short it could be a whole range of things...you could also screw you're comp open, fill in gasoline, light a match, that will teach you're cooling-fans:p! No seriously, the most likely thing will be that you're new fan isn't plugged in right.

Also check for dirt! Alot of dirt will cause any PC to get hot, then freeze.

New fan, or new heatsink?
