All CLCs have equal pump noise, it's the fans that matter. You can buy 3rd party fans and see if that fits your expectation.

After going from a TRUE with a San Ace attached to it to a Nepton 140XL, I can confirm that an air cooler will be quieter. Even with a high RPM forcing air between the fins on my TRUE, it was quieter than the pump in the AIO cooler I have now. If noise is something you wish to limit, an AIO cooler is not for you. If you insist on getting an AIO, I recommend the Seidon 120V. It's probably the best bang for the buck at the moment.

I assume the noise levels listed are for the fans. The pump is going to be significantly louder. If you want as little noise as possible, you're going to have to go with an air cooling solution.

How loud do you beleive the Pump will be because when im at my PC i Pretty much always have my headset on

It depends how fast it's pumping. I notice mine most when I first start my computer. I hear all the fans stir, then I hear the pump kick it into high gear.

If you're trying to justify a louder cooler with a headset, why focus so much on noise? Seems like you don't care about it that much. Either way, I think the Nepton 120XL is a tad overpriced. I wouldn't buy it unless it was on sale. I got my Nepton 140XL for $74.99 after rebate.
