To bleed the air out of your system you need to unplug everything but the pump and maybe your hhd jump the 24 pin and put the water in the res till fill. tilt the case around till all the big bubbles are out. Watch tis vid http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/1159114-how-fill-bleed-wc-loop.html

The AC Aquastream is indeed a silent and really good pump. Not the tinyest pump out there, but if you have the space I highly recommend it. I have mounted this between two Shoggy sandwiches in the bottom of a Corsair 800D and I cant hear it, even on highest frequency(80Hz).

I run a D5 Vario decoupled (just hangs on the tube down from my res) and it's silent. I'd recommend it.

The quietest pumps are aquarium pumps! Eheim 1046, Hydor L20/L25, etc.

Downside is that they are 120v. For 12v pumps, there aren't a ton of options...mostly the Laing D5/DDC series, and XSPC stuff.

For the Laing (swiftech, koolance, etc) pumps, it really makes a difference what aftermarket top or res-top is used. After a while the ceramic and graphite bearing in the pumps can begin to vibrate due to wear.

A heavier delrin reservoir pump top will: 1) be quieter and 2) absorb some vibration as it makes the pump assembly a larger connected mass.

As someone whos' PC is silent as 1 180mm fan running at 600RPM, as that is what it idles with......

the MCP355 is NOT a silent pump. High pitched whine is very audible.

The MCP655 aka D5 is also not completely silent and I highly recomend the variable speed option to dial in the speed. What makes this pump better is the lack of resonating vibrations since you can change the speed at such a fine degree. I have mine around 3.9 / 5 and I can barely hear it, but its still the loudest thing in my computer right now.

With pumps, if you want silence, you're going to need to have the pump vary its speed based on temperature.

But two of these.

Undervolt both to 7 or 8V with a high wattage fan controller.

Make sure both are decoupled.

PROFIT!

I have the Aquastream XT suspended by the tubing itself (the tubing has extra support to safely carry it), and I can't hear it at all. The Noctua's at 900 RPM are louder.

I've heard mixed things about the Laing pumps - some say they're quiet, some say not so much - but the only common pumps I don't think I've heard of being noisy are the Jingway pumps (AKA the EK DCP series).
