Water pumps can and do wear out and if yours is noisy changing it is a good idea. It is kind of hard to imagine there wouldn't be an overheating issue though. I'm thinking if the radiator you have is an aftermarket, the caps may not be fitting correctly but still passing a pressure test because the tester fits tighter. I say this because I have seen it happen before but it is pretty rare.
