I'm pretty sure all pumps humm to an extent, you can do some things to cope with it. I have my pump resting on a piece of rubber matting and it silences it for the most part, but it is audible.

Unless everything is literally perfect, it will hum.

You've got a motor spinning a wheel to push water, unless its all in perfect balance, there will be vibrations which will cause a hum.

Like Mandrake said, you can isolate it from your case, and it will help.

I forgot to add I also have 12 fans in my case so I usually hear those over the hmmm of the pump. :shrug:

the xt45 looks like a pretty good rad and 45mm thick, here at the house i run 25mm thick rads, a little on the thin side.

I'm thinking , 480 should be enough for cpu and maybe vrm+nb. I'm affraid the pump is not going to have enough power because i can't find restriction figures for the koolance vrm block but without it i should have more than 1.2 gpm flow

I'm thinking cooling the VRM and NB is a bit overkill, a couple of 50mm fans placed on them will do the job just fine, though it may not be aesthetically pleasing to look at. I have an 80mm mounted on my vrm section and it works just fine.
