if that is the elite cappelix, download corsair icue, and control pump speed as you wish, until it is tailored to your liking, the advantages of corsair

well, it will still have a noise, it can't just be silent, even a noctua fan on 1 rpm will have a very low noise, since it is moving. So if you close the case it will not be audible, and your sticking the mic right into it, that'll be much louder and impractical

is it really audible when browsing, wearing headset, and such, because, that is normal noise, perhaps chipset fan?

well, I feel like it is normal, just keep your headsets on, and maybe, as long as they aren't open ear, will block the noise

Yes it’s normal. As a bonus since it’s Corsair it will get louder over time 👌🏻

You did not post an image with the entire setup. 

If installed incorrectly you will get more noise than normal and also wear the pump faster . 

I draw you how is a correct instal of aio . Been tested and explain by GN, how AIO works and correct way to install.
