Default Worth it on my setup?

I just bought an x79 with 3930k and GTX 690. The seller also included a pump and radiator that has not been setup yet. I don't have waterblocks or any tubing yet. Would it be worthwhile for me to buy the parts and complete the setup or should I just sell the watercooling stuff and stay on air?

If you plan on overclocking the 3930k I would say yes. They do throw a lot of heat. By moving from a Noctua NH-D14 to water I gained 200MHz and dropped 10C. As for the GTX690 it depends on if you plan on overclocking and your noise tolerance. It does have a rather decent HSF, if you aren't overclocking I doubt it should get all that loud w/ the default fan profile.
