Yes, you can leave the fill port cap off while the pump is running. This will help the trapped air to escape. Just make sure that your fill port is facing up of course and be careful when opening it so that it doesn't spill out onto any of your hardware when you take it off. Once the fluid level drops from the air escaping you can top it off with distilled water.

Tough call on whether checking while running would be wise. If the fluid level wasn't so high as to splash out while running, it would possibly be ok. You could always pull the rad out and look at it while running, or if you feel daring just put a whole bunch of towels and check it in place. My pump did make more noise at first, but was never loud.

Just curious on the whole distilled water thing. I do auto detailing, so I have a 100 gallon water tank with reverse osmosis water in it. I also have soft water at home, would either of those work. I know distilled isn't expensive, but just curious.

never opened the loop before, I figured me flipping it all around installing it would maybe make some air bubbles

EDIT: pulled the cap off and the fluid is at the very top, don't want to tilt the system cause it'll spill, is this normal?

it's set to 'pwm' I dont think the manual control changed anything when I tried it but I didn't play with that setting underneath much

This is normal and if there is some air in the loop it will work it's way up to the reservoir. What you can try doing is put the fill cap back on and try tilting your case gently from side to side and back to front while the pump is running. After that take the fill cap back off and see if you can top it off. This should remove the air bubbles from your pump and quiet it down. You might need to do this a couple of times to remove a particularly stubborn bubble.

tryed that, didn't tilt it extremely but there was no change in fluid level, maybe a little higher

If you don't set it to manual control, all you're doing is forcing PWM control using the default motherboard settings. There's no need to adjust the slope if you're going to use Speedfan. Also verify that you changed the Alert temperature for the sensors you plan to use, it defaults to an absurdly low temperature, if you don't it will operate at 100% once that temperature is reached.

set the fan speed to manual and the slope at .75

also changed all the warning temps to 95 and no change

Can you upload a screen shot of your Speedfan window? Also, keep in mind that the PWM number won't match the fan number, with my board PWM2 is controlling Fan3, and PWM3 is controlling Fan1. PWM3 being the CPU fan header.
