How uch is total budget for this build?
Maybe I need just count :D  LGA 1150 is new sso can we go with that or is it must have lga 1155? For lga 1155 xeon is much better cpu than 3570k faster, cooler. You can NOT OC that but it is fast enough without OC.
It do have HT + 8Treads.

This first build is based on xeon. If you are in tight budget theb you can lose cpu cooler. If you like more silent build hen keep it :)

I would also recommend a beefier power supply, not because that one cant run the components, but just in case you want to upgrade in the future.
