Default Jerking sound during startup h100i

Sound is sort of hard to describe, sounds kind of like jerking/pulling, or maybe a chug. Sound goes away after 5 to 10 minutes. I'm assuming its just the pump/radiator circulating the fluid causing it to make that sound. Would that be normal? Seems to go away tho, I'm not using stock fans(NF-F12 Noctura) and not connected directly to the pump.

Firmware is 1.0.4, not updated to the latest due to the Link not liking Windows 8 unless that has changed.

It might be air bubbles in the pump. Lay the case flat for a few hours while running and then check if the noise disappears.

It is not uncommon to have some noise if this is a new unit, let it break in for a couple of days and see if the noise goes away.
