I've decided on the following parts for my new rig:

Case: Fractal Design Define R4
CPU: 3770K

I will OC, but not to extremes - I'd prefer a quite computer.

These 3 seems like good choises:

Silver Arrow

I don't know which is best (low noise/good cooling) or if there are any better/new ones out there.

Some people seem to replace the fans on the coolers - what replacement fans are recommended?

a really good cooler for cheap is the cooler master hyper 212 evo.....its less than 30 bucks and is pretty quite. and alot less bulky than the ones you posted.

Just get a Hyper 212 EVO and see how loud that is. If you don't like how loud it is, replace the fan with a quiet one such as a Noctua one.
