AIO's are fairly good when it comes to being fully filled normally though so it shouldnt matter. If I constantly heard air in my AIO Id return it tbh
Ahh I see... Is it the same case if the AIO would be horisontal? Ie like in the Corsair 380T or 250D, for example?.

There is always a little air in AIO systems. There is a little air in water cooled systems. It makes a wooosh sound when there is a lot of it. Coolant also evaporates over time.

Bubbling noises. The pump can sound like it's grinding almost.

Oh so the reason AIOs are suppose to be hoses in the bottom is for the tank to "stand in" as a RES??? And it does not matter in custom watercooling?

I'm preparing a custom loop in my 250D, and it would be easier with in/out in the top of the front radiator But the install guide from my 1070 hybrid had me thinking that they always should be in the bottom

In custom loop cooling it is easier to bleed the system. That is the one of the functions of reservoirs. Air gets trapped in the res so you can open it a fill it a little more. Even if you are sure you tilted your case enough and got all the air out, after few days/weeks you will see fluid level in res to go down, because some trapped air got out and ended up in res. AIO coolers don't have reservoirs, and the air constantly circulates the system. There are fill ports on some AIO coolers that you can use to refill them like Kelvin, Eisbaer but it is pain.

So? There is no problem in having a rad with in/out in the top?

None at all. You just need to bleed the system well when doing custom loop.
