    i don't think they're related.
    the two are completely different devices UNLESS, you've touched the fan cable while you were installing that new HDD which might actually be close to your hand while you were doing this. make sure the fan's cable is perfectly plugged into the motherboard.

    smart motherboards turn off, or turn down the RPMs on fans. If the thermal sensor doesn't detect enough heat it will adjust the fan. check your BIOS.

    dumb motherboards have fans on all the time. You have an option to override smart fan technology on smart motherboards in the BIOS.
