1) With the H100i V2, you won't see much, if any, difference in cooling between Quiet and Extreme performance on the pump. You WILL see a difference with the fans. Balanced is usually a good place to start but I always hand-tweaked my fan curves.

2) Just leave Q-Fan disabled. Like I said, on the Asus motherboards, this is the best way to do it. But it's Asus specific.

3) All have their uses. c-attack is a particular fan of Aida. Keep in mind that Prime is pretty brutal on a processor and doesn't represent a realistic load. To test overall, total system cooling, check out ROG RealBench. It stresses both the CPU and the GPU and will give you a good idea if the overall cooling is good. But do that after getting the CPU stable.
Please click "Edit System Specs" and fill out your system info.
