It's really only worth it if you are in one of two situations:
1) You have money to blow and like having the best stuff.
2) You really enjoy being up-to-date with your hardware, and it's a hobby that makes you happy.
People will list the benefits or the downsides, but usually they fall into one of the two categories, or somewhere inbetween. It's rare that someone buys watercooling specifically for lowered sound levels (and if they do, they usually still fall into one of the two categories above).
I doubt you have an excess of money where you don't mind blowing it on frivolous expenses, considering you are downgrading to a 2500k. So you're not in category one.
So if you see yourself as being in category number two then really... it's up to you. Will it make you happy?
