Really just settle for a 4670 or a 4570 if you're not overclocking and remember you will have to upsize your cooling if you go to haswell

But we're on OCN so we say a 240+120 (since that's all you can install in it) and PLEASE OVERCLOCK YOUR PROC AND GPU IF YOU BUY A 4670K

Or just do this and buy some water blocks and know your good for your next upgrade.... Yes I know this is MAJOR overkill for this setup.

I can't believe this all went over our heads. Why build a custom loop if you aren't even going to bother overclocking? If noise is an issue. Just get some low noise fans like Corsair AF quiet edition with a decent heatsink like coolermaster 212 evo.

Because computer building isn't all about noise or performance. Some people like the aesthetics of water-cooling far more than seeing a gigantic hunk of metal hanging off their CPU socket. To each their own though.
