    Oh boy I wonder if I mess up something because it feels like the fan(near the display cable) is running more constant now. This piece(circled in red) here is now slightly lifted up when I was re-seating the display cable. Could it be due to that?

    Those are the CPU cooling fins. If the heatsink is not sitting right then the CPU could be making poor contact to the heatsink. You could check by removing it and taking a picture of the pattern on the CPU and contact point on the heatsink left by the past.

    I guess the issue I have is how do I put the heatsink and CPU cooling fins back to their original positions since they seem to be permanently lifted?

    It would suggest the heatpipes are bent or the thermal pads are not sitting right.

    Is there any of kind of paste to hold it back in place? Like should I be using IC Diamond? When I was putting in the new cable. I also took out the fan to clean it a bit and wonder if it's because of that I have this loud fan problem. I've attached pictures of my new issue.
