Your overflow should ideally go into a T connector...the downwards section draining into your sump and the upwards section capped. Just drill a hole in the cap and this will allow air to go in and will eliminate the gurgling noise.

doc shake, i added a ball valve at the end of my drain pipe and it is working flawless, thanks alot. i have an external over flow and dont really want to drill my tank, so i didnt go w/ the durso or anything else like that. the ball valve worked like a charm
