Your build seems fine, I am using using the same CPU cooler on my Intel Core i5 4570 and its silent although your CPU has a higher TDP(125W vs my 84W) so it could be a bit louder but I would not worry, its definitely going to be quieter than AMD's stock cooler and better performing

Thanks for both your answers, always like getting some positive comments about the build before buying it. I may get a better cooler down the libe but I'm sure that its fine for now.
