Gosh, this build has gotten out of hand, but now I need a suggestion for a cooler for an i5 which I would like to overclock. Possible to get anything around 5K or so?

CM Hyper 212 Turbo dual fan should do, costs about 3k. Just make sure the case you bought have big enough to fit this one or any cooler you buy for that matter.
Air cooler from Noctua is better but would cost about 7k.

Considering price, performance, longevity of water cooler, I think air cooler should be good enough.
Do research before finalizing.
