Changed Fans, Now System is Unstable

I swapped out the 140mm fans on my Kraken 62x, and now my system is incredibly unstable.  My CPU is running idle at 54 C, while my GPU is at 37 C.  Prior to the fan swap my CPU was also idling at 37 C.  I swapped the fans for NZXT AER RGB Fans, so I can't really think of a reason why the fans would be the problem.

 

I did notice that on the initial boot up after the fan replacement, I could hear the liquid in the AIO.  Not the normal light sound they make on initial startup, but actually hear bubbling.  

 

Here's the symptoms:

 

-Upon boot up, the system will start to boot, then shut off, then boot up normally.

-CPU Running 20 degree hotter

-Crashing after about 15-25 minutes in gaming.  GPU Temp never surpasses 70 C

-BSOD happened once so far

 

I'm going to try a repaste of the AIO when I get more thermal paste in.  Is there anything else I should try?

Put the old fans on and see if it goes back to normal.

I'm guessing the old fans were the default for the X62, what were the new fans?

Are your old fans PWM and the new ones DC or Visa Versa? IF SO, you MUST change the voltage input setting in the BIOS accordingly, or else the fan will not spin. 

Fine you want the PSU tier list? Have the PSU tier list: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1116640-psu-tier-list-40-rev-103/

The new fans are the NZXT AER RGB fans.  The fans themselves are working just fine.
