the haf x is a great case for air cooling and a decent case for water cooling.. some might argue that it looks ugly, but if you like it, go for it.
the corsair h60 is a decent enough heatsink.. i personally haven't used it in conjunction with the 3570k yet, but since ivy runs a bit hotter when overclocked, i'd imagine it's not as good as it would be with say a 2500k, but still decent enough.
maybe look at the h80? alternatively, you could get a noctua or thermalright heatsink.
if you were going for the hydro series, they come with tim pre applied.. other heatsinks come with their own thermal paste and that's good enough.
forever, forever...in such a way you will remember!
