How close is your fan to the radiator? Also, are you using a shroud on your fan?

If your fan is too close to the radiator you will generate a lot of noise. If you don't have a shroud try experimenting with some cardboard and tape to work out the best distance to set the fan from the rad - start at about half an inch away and keep going back until you find the optimum distance (make sure you give the system time to stabilise on each test).
