Riceboy is an unknown quantity at this point

Ever since I had my leaking valve cover gasket replaced, I have noticed a whirling sound from under the hood. It is a slight growl at idle but does get louder and faster with the engine speed. I can hear it in the car at driving speeds? I even changed the oil at 500 miles thinking I had the wrong viscosity. No luck.
I am open for any suggestions.
