It would be but it is terribly unbalanced, the PSU is way to big for that build so safe some money and go for a 600w, then get an i5 if you are mainly gaming and use the savings for a GTX 770 or R9 290.

No it's not compatible because the motherboard uses socket LGA 2011 while the processor uses socket LGA 1150.
What is the purpose of this build?
What is your budget?

Gameing and just a good computer which will last long and can handle everyday use
I don really have a budget but it should be no more than £2500

What processor can I use with this if it is not compatible and will be able to have all the fans I know it is not necessary and I don't mind the noise but can all the fans be used and I want an impressive system that can handle any thing I throw at it

There's no point of going for socket LGA 2011 if you're just gaming.
Here's what I would recommend:

-Socket LGA 1150 is good enough for gaming.
-Included a cpu cooler so you can overclock really well.
-8gb of ram is plenty for games.
-Threw in a 1tb HDD for storage. 250gb SSD should be enough for your os and programs.
-GTX 780 ti can max out any game right now at 1080p and it should continue to do so for awhile.
-The Define R4 is a great case. It offers great airflow and it's very silent.
-No need for extra case fans.
-850w is plenty for future SLI and overclocking.
