Save on the cooler and bump to a 570.. CM 212 is 30 bucks vs the 95 for the noctua.. and there is only a small difference in the performance..

The slightly lower clock you get from the cpu (very slightly lower) will more than be offset by the 570..

No way a 2500k NEED one of the best air cooler out there. You may want it for the look or anything else ( i respect each and everyone taste), but using such a high-end cooler on a mildly oced 2500k is just overkill for me. Hell you can almost buy a small ssd for the price difference between a 212+ (the single best performance/$ cooler there is) and a D14!
