I can not get mine to align it seems noctua fans have a wider frame.

Why would you? EK Vardar fans are better to use. Not sure why it wouldn't align right.

Way to big for where I store my PC. I Also wouldn't want something that massive. I prefer smaller Cube cases. I have Case-Labs S8S.

They gave me the same temps, spinning at max 1300rpm and are dead silent.
The noisiest part in my PC is now the pump.

Don't know what it was, but my problems are now over. Even at lower RPMs. So, obviously I did something right. Maybe there was an air bubble or "white flake" in a wrong place that caused this previous noise. Anway, all is well now and that is all that matters.

I think I will order some new fans for the case and the radiator (prolly Noctua) and flush the whole loop thoroughly in case there are more "white floaters" there.

My replacement rev 1.1 Predator 360 pump is also making annoying noise, to be honest im not going to take it all apart and fix it myself, this thing costs 300 euro here, one would really expect it to work out of the box without any problems. I had rev 1.0 Predator 240 before, it´s pump was not making any audible noises.

I am not Akira but just like someone else already answered it for you- no it is no longer true. Both Pastel and the Primochill tubing have changed since that old post.
