I'm a .Net developer (C#/VB) and I'm looking into a few games this year Diablo 3 mainly till MU Legends and Quake Champions are released. Currently have a xeon e3 1281-v3 cooled by a hyper 212 evo with 2 be Quiet Wings 2 PWM fans and was wondering if this will be enough to run those games. If not and I need an i7 will that cooler/fan setup and case fan setup cool it to overclock? This is also my work machine and don't want to drop to an i5.
Other spec: Mobo: z87 Gryphon with armor kit GPU: 1050 TI FTW (just bought it from brother for $120) Ram: 32gb 2133mhz Storage: 850 Pro 1tb SSD, 4 WD black 1tb HDD (Raid 10) PSU: 550w 80 plus gold Case: Fractal Design Define Mini Black Silent Case w/ 4 be Quiet Wings 2 PWM fans (2 intake/ 2 exhaust)

Your Xeon is basically already a pretty good i7, so there doesn't seem to be any need to upgrade. Not unless they make a game that demands more than 8 threads.
Yes that I know it was mainly the option to over clock to say 4.5Ghz will I see an improvement from my Xeon to justify the upgrade.
