They're replacing the pump, but you guys are making me not want to use it :( I hope it doesn't damage my next processor.

Continue to use it but get an extended warranty on it or whatever that protects your whole computer.

less noise due to less moving parts.

just pointing out that this is generally false. unless your fans are running lower than 800 rpm, the water pump will be quieter if installed correctly. and while not completely silent, water pumps are effectively inaudible in most setups from more than a few feet away.

It does depend on the settings, sure. But what I've heard the pumps can generate a faint high pitch noise that can be quite annoying. I've got a Noctua NH-D14 paired with my i7 4790K and even under extreme stress it doesn't break 900RPM.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.
