I don't hear anything particularly troubling in the short clip, assuming that squeal toward the end was not from the pump. Also, if you have to get 5cm from it to hear, it is not likely a threat. When there is an issue, you generally hear over the fans and with the case closed from your normal vantage. Unfortunately the pump is a moving part and must make some type of mechanical noise. If you are pursuing a 'zero noise case', you have to look at air towers with fewer moving parts and less radiator resistance, giving up the benefits of water cooling.

Just use it normally (you don't need the performance pump mode by the way) and get a feel for it. If things get worse or it still feels troublesome, we can take another look at it.
