Rear intake is only good if your rig is not backed up against a wall and if your gpus exhaust inside your case.
I might be switching to rear intake again instead of front intake once I get my GTs from the group buy, since my 5770 Hawks exhaust most of their heat towards the front of the case and I'd prefer to push more cold air from the front end.

It's rare that the pump buzz continues to make noise after a few hours or a few days, since most of the people who have had buzzing from the pump (like me) solved that problem by shaking the rad or tubes to move air bubbles. Most users don't even get the buzz though.

If you can get away with leaving the rad outside your case, make sure you're not stretching or bending the tubes since the weight of the rad/fans could potentially damage the tubes. Also add fan grills to your fans just so things or people cannot damage your fans/themselves.
It's best mounted where you can receive fresh cold air without pushing the hot air towards other components.
