You could change to an i5 3470 and h77 board. No overclocking but basically the same performance as the 3570.

You could change to an AMD fx-6300 and cheaper motherboard and put more money in the GPU.

You don't need extra case fans

You don't need a power supply power cord. (it comes with the PSU)

Don't do this. There is no reason to go to tech which is about to be 2 years old.

Do this. The i5 will be considerable better than the fx-6300.

The PSU has a power cord

The Case comes with an intake and exhaust fan. They will be plenty.
