Ok, good to know about the pump and yes the future AMD 3000 will be very interesting! :)

This aio rocks right now. Only one negative thing, I believe one of the new ML 140 mm fans sounds like a bird at certain rpm's, hopefully it's not the pump. I will need to do some detective work here.

Some more quick tests using prime 2.66 and overclocking my 1600X to 3925MHz, about 59-61 °C most of the times, rock stable, rasing volts to approximately 1.3675

Update: super weird ;-)

I unplugged the lower (new) ML 140 mm fan from power, "bird sound" disappeared. Then I reconnected the fan and since then I have never heard the "bird sound" again!?

It's a bit to early to celebrate though. ;-)

EDIT: Yes, it's back and I'm sure which one is causing this sound, I will try getting a new ML 140 mm fan tomorrow.

I know magnetic fans may sound weird if not given enough power but I am pretty sure this is just a bad fan. I suppose the sata connection for the H115i platinum is enough to give power to the pump and four fans?

Yes, the fans will get enough power if connected to the pump's fan controller.

I am pretty sure (after repeated testing) the lower one is bad.

I received an advice from @c-attack loosening the screws for the ML fan making sporadic "bird sounds" (chirping) and I believe it helped. :-)

My guess is that the magnetic ML fans are a bit more sensitive for this than the majority of other fans but I am not sure.

Only one negative thing left right now:

I believe my current setup of radiator and fan configuration/placement may have increased temp of gpu, I see this on idling.

Note: I also increased my overclock from 3.85GHz to 3.925GHz including raising voltage to approximately 1.3675.

I'm not sure yet if my increased overclock is the reason or the placement of fans and radiator, I will need to do more testning.

My cpu temps are fantastic, not an issue at all. System stable in prime 2.66 tests and various benchmarks.

This is my current setup:

Front: H115i platinum in a push pull config (4 x 140 mm) and one 140 mm below the radiator (all fans blowing air into case)
Bottom: Two 140 mm blowing air into case in direction up to gpu
Top: Two 120 mm blowing air out from case
Back: One 140 mm blowing air out from case

Keep in mind that, with GPUs, the fans typically don't engage until they get warm.
