    Maybe you left the top on the master cylinder or you have overfilled the master cylinder and you have pressure in system after collapsing the pistons for new pad clearance.? Are you sure the rotor hat heigth is the same? Almost need to be fly on the wall and look over your shoulder to verify all is good. Not doubting your mech ability just unsure why all was replaced to begin with. Maybe a bit more detail would help us help you? Try bleeding system and see what happens.
