That's awesome.
Corsair recommends to have the fans intake to the case.. which I still don't understand. I would recommend (as well as others) to have the fans (both!) exaust out the back. Reason being = not to have hot air blowing inside the case and raising your motherboard / internal temperatures.
The difference in cpu cooling is marginal, 1-2c at most.. assuming you have decent air flow in your case already.

Well i'm glad to hear you figured it out, seemed like it would have been something silly like that. Its why i asked the original stupid question if your pump was plugged in, i should have asked what your fan configuration was.
