Default High rev sound but rpm not high

2008 manual transmission with about 40,000 miles. Recently replaced radiator. At highway speeds, car sounds like its revving in 3rd or 4th gear, but its in 5th gear and rpm's aren't high. Has anyone else had this?

Could be your engine fan on at high speed - temp okay?
The engine fan on high is very noisy.
