id go 4 a newer processor say the i7 2600k, also means a new mobo tho say Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P this should work out abit cheaper and abit faster imo

id also be tempted to ditch the water cooling pre kit and just go with fans for price or do all the pluming for water cooling my self.

I agree.

Hell, even an AMD FX-8150 on a Gigabyte 990FX board would offer similar performance at a lower price.

id still be tempted with the i7 2600k as it about 30-40 cheaper and better for over clocking read this review

Intel Core i7 3770K review | from TechRadar's expert reviews of Processors

Well I guess its what you want it for, as the ivy bridge supports quad channel memory better graphics then that is what you want if you don't need that then go for sandy but the review also says it can be clocked up to 6.3GHz
