Somebody from EK told me two weeks ago that they sent Micro Center's distributing center the new units. I'm assuming he was telling the truth, but nothing at my local Micro yet

Since we send all the EK Stuff MicroCenter is ordering to a centralized warehouse where they dispatch their stock to the local MicroCenter shop, we are kinda losing what's going on after the shipment.

The best would be to contact them directly

Is this a wise choice or should I just leave the pump connected to the pwm hub and control it via the same hub as the fans?

Also curious about fan curves for this. I had a h110i gtx before and I just everything to run at max which obviously is a poor choice. Would appreciate any suggestions on how a fan curve should be. Currently I have it at 30C-40% then 47C-72% and 60C-100%

You don't have to separate the pump control from the fans. If you have an ASUS motherboard, simply connect the PWM cable to the CPU 4-pin connector on the board, and let the BIOS detect it with QFAN Tuning. Once it's done with the fan detection and adjustments, you should probably alter it to something like shown in the included screenshot (experiment with these settings). Notice that you probably won't be allowed to set the min. duty cycle below 20%, as this is entirely dependent on the fan/pump.

Did you run the QFAN Tuning first? If yes try resetting your BIOS. I've had several times where the duty cycle just got stuck on 100% and wouldn't budge. Seems like a bug in the software.

Yeah just done that but it tells me now I have cpu fan speed error

That seems to be a common issue with Asus boards, so set the fan speed to ignore then.

Do I better off buying the Rampage 5 or the new MSI Godlike board?

I wished I had put more forethought into all of this first. I had bought a Predator 360(QDC) kit from EKWB over the weekend. And I plan to be adding two GPU blocks into the loop. After reading more and more about it. And after contact with EKWB about the idea, I bought a second 360mm PE radiator, hose, extra fittings, etc.

The reason they gave me that it is not wise to add a second GPU pre-filled block into a loop is because of the Quick disconnects. Its a choke point for the flow basically.

So what I intend to do is to add onto the Predator since its basically a custom loop. This is what I sketched up in MsPaint. Ignore that I put QDC on the gpu loops. It was before I talked to EKWB

Does this seem half as feasible? Do you think a reservior should be added at the bottom of the second radiator? Does it need a pump? Or buy a res/pump combo and make the GPUs their own loop?
