IDK then. It may have been a rogue air pocket. Judging by your pictures, it looks like your radiator sits almost identical height to the top of the pump. Mine does not sit that high up. I'm personally looking to mod my case to add more room above the case fan area, maybe add a 120MM slot up top, and room for a upgrade radiator.
BTW, so you guys think my cool temps are bogus, figured I'd show you Prime95 running from 4PM-5PM, (usually the warmest part of the day here). This was the In-Place Large FFTs (maximum heat, power consumption, some RAM tested) on all 6 cores. As you can see max at full load for a hour is 33C, and the temps actually dropped during the test. So this put's my temps anywhere from Low=15C to High=33C. Not bad, I think.
