I just recently (2 weeks ago) redid my loop, changed fluid, cleaned everything, and the block is clean. There had been a little gunk on it, but I cleaned it out. I flushed the radiators and my res and the blocks, so I don't think that is the problem.

this is very strange.. your rig sounds like a motorbike at 1200+rpm .. ok not like a motorbike but its too loud for me. i had a gtx 285 and a 1ghz oc running just on 600-700 rpm. what fans do you have? cfm and preassure and this stuff?!
As for fans, they are rated for something like 69 cfm I believe. On the 240 rad they are set up to pull into the case, and on the 120 rad, it pushes. It is a bit loud, but my speakers are sitting on my desk so they more than cover the fan noise. My rad fans are CM fans
Air flow is decent. Right now the front fan on my case (CM HAF932) is blowing out, the side fan is blowing in, the rad fans are all blowing in, and I have a bottom fan that blows out. Could the problem be too much positive pressure? The bottom fan definitely takes most of the exhaust.
Also, cable management is decent, but not the best. I'll try to get a picture up of my internals when I can, but it will be a crappy cellphone picture because I dont have my camera right now.
I'm thinking my tubing might be kinda haphazard, but you guys can judge that when I get some pics up
