AC Works only when engine is revving high

A mechanic replaced the AC compressor with a brand new one. However, the AC is cold only when the engine is revving above certain rpm. For ex, when at a stop light and idling, the air is warm...but if I put it into neutral and rev the engine to, let's say, 2000+ rpm, AC gets colder....or when Im driving, it gets colder, obviously.

I know everyone is gonna say something about the condenser fan but would it be the fan given above circumstances?

    That's only enough information to start testing, it is a poor practice to attempt to guess a cause just from the description alone.

    What was wrong with the original compressor, was it leaking or did it fail mechanically?
