Intel by far. H60 kinda sux, I'd get an H80i at the very least if I was getting AIO water cooling.

Well depending on what are you planning to do on your pc.
But my vote goes to second one, seeing as first build is attempt to plant AMD cpu on intel board, lol.

Your 2.0 build won't work the MOBO has the wrong socket for the CPU you picked. With that said even if you had a compatible MOBO that build isn't good for gaming. Go with build 1.0.
