May I ask what do you mean by "animating" if you mean watching anime, then an i7-2600k would be overkill, modern games (2011 and before titles) do not utilize more than 4 cores. An i5-2500k would definitely save you quite a few pounds / bucks.
As for UK sites, www.overclockers.co.uk is pretty solid, so is amazon, obviously. ^.^"

As for case fans, I have only use a few

and

and

They are extremely quiet and "sufficient".

As for CPU cooling, I would suggest the Corsair H80 or even the H100...
Here is the review tomshardware did for them.
