The only difference is that the pump power cable used to be connected to the case cables. But since they apparently no longer work that one is now connected directly to the motherboard.
On some motherboards you have to DISABLE CPU fan control. That way the pump gets a full 12v. On others it's PWM, so it doesn't matter.
The Delta fans I tried kiiled the 12v from the motherboards CPU fan connector. I work around it with an adaptor that takes 12v from the 4 pin molex and has a connector to delivers tach wire to CPU fan header.

This HAS to be done like this, or else (someone correct me if I'm wrong) but you won't pass POST, as your motherboard should be giving you CPU FAN HEADER warnings.
More so - the CASE should NOT be controlling the speed of the pump/fans.
The motherboard, and/or fan controller should be doing that. Preferably the motherboard, as it has a direct link to the CPU socket - whereas a fan controller might not.

That set aside, you should still not be hearing any PUMP NOISE - after it running on for around 15mins, nor should the fans be too loud (of course you'll have to tweak this in the antec software OR on your motherboard, if the fans are connected to the motherboard directly, like my SP120's are)
I'm just using the terminology from the manual.


So to reiterate:
What has changed is that I now connect the pump power cable directly to the motherboard. And I did the same for all my other fan power cables because the case cables don't seem to be working anymore.
Now that I have done this, the fans are all fine, they work exactly the same as they used to. The problem is that the cooler itself is making a very annoying noise. A 15-second clip of the noise can be found here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/j2w6tr

I guess I can try that but ChillControl is showing my Pump Speed at ~2890 RPM, very close to the maximum speed. So I doubt the pump is strapped for power.

EDIT:
Here is the page from the motherboard manual about the different fan connectors.

The cable coming out of the cooler is currently connected to "B" (CPU_FAN).

From my understanding the chill control software works in concert witht the CPU fan header. It will send the correct signal so you don't get errors from the motherboard. I have to say once it is working correctly and having overclocked passed 5GHz on my i7-3820, that extreme setting might be loud but it cools the chip no problem, it actually helps cool my VRM on the motherboard they way i have it set up. With the bubbling noise, The part of the rad where the hoses come out is like a reservoir, i have been told with no proof, that you always have the reservoir above the pump to avoid bubbling noises.

OK - whatever Antec calls it - that's correctly put in B slot.
I can't access the file as it has been removed - put it on somewhere like dropbox or youtube.
Long story short: If the pump is still making noise, send it back, whilst you still got the chance to return it easily.

I have updated the post with a new link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/j2w6tr

As for returning it, that's not as easy as you make it sound. Without that cooler I can't use my PC and I need it on a daily basis.
Nor is it brand new, I have used it for a while without issues.

as far as i am aware i just have the 2 fans connected to the mobo using the y splitter and the usb into the usb port on the the mobo (i think you need to make sure the black cable goes on the right side of the port). I think thats what powers the pump.

As for the noise. Everytime i remount my cooler (for any reason) and detach the rad all the water goes into the rad and away from the pump. so when i turn on the system the pump runs at max for a couple of secs and sounds like your one, then my system shuts down. The solution i have found has been to lie the case down on its side (with the mobo facing up so on its right side) so that the water runs from the rad and into the pump. that sorts out the noise for me.

Try this for the noise - I mounted the pump where the hoses exit the top instead of the recommended bottom. The air went out of the pump and is absolutely quiet. It was noisy for two weeks before I tried this, it has been quiet for dour days, being turned off at night. The photo may be upside down - don't know why but the fans are on the top of my machine.
