Hey, did you use the Doom3 duct tape mod for a flashlight?

Haha no.

So it's been running quite silent for a while now...I still hear some water sloshing in the radiator.

One concern I have is that it sounds quite loud in the CPU block. I keep hearing what sounds like "squishing" water. The equivalent of taking a rag and straining it. It's constant and hasn't gone away. That's currently the loudest part of my system.

It kinda sounds like there's a pump in the CPU. It's weird...it's not going away and I wouldn't expect there to be air in there.

I put the top on as someone recommended and 5 minutes later I shut the pump off. It exploded back through the middle again. I don't know why it does that?

I agree with SaltwaterCooled, fill the loop while the pumps are running. Put the top of the res back on before you turn them off. Since your res isn't the highest point in your loop the water will surge into your res when the pumps are off.

An anti-cyclone insert also made by EK will help solve your 'cyclone happy time explosion.' And beware, where ever there is a Katy Perry there is a Russell Brand lurking not too far away.

Thanks mate. Any idea why my CPU block is making quite a bit of noise?

Is there any way to prevent that surge from happening? That means every time I shut down/reboot my reservoir will overflow? Or will it eventually go away?

Blocks don't make noise. The pump is the only thing in the loop that has any moving parts...likely your flow.

The noise in the EK Supreme is normal, it's because the high pressure that you have is being forced through the jet plate in the block and the water is cavitating in the block. Effectively the water is getting torn apart, and what you're hearing is the sound that the collapsing bubbles make when it comes back together. Blocks will be one of the last places to harbor air because they have eddies and micro-currents that keep the bubbles trapped longer. They will clear out eventually thought.

The water is going to explode back every time you shut the pump off until the air gets bled out more. What's happening is that the pump is compressing the air pockets and when you shut it off, the air pushes back. Water is much more dense and less compressible, so you will have a small surge, but nothing dramatic once the loop is bled. I would just turn the pumps on, and leave them for several hours, topping off the res, while running, as needed.

Oh sorry, last question. The clamps that hold my reservoir. Is it normal for me to somewhat easily remove the reservoir by pulling? Like if I tilted the case sideways and shook it, the reservoir might come out.

Are the screws loose or is there some flex in the 'claws'?

Just an air bubble moving through the block. Nothing to worry about.
