Yes it`s worth it, but liquid cooling requires fans too, so......

You could just buy an air cooler and put quiet fans on it.

Are you using the Intel cooler that came with the 3570K ? You don`t list it in your specs

Liguid cooling also adds noise from the pump. Liquid cooling is desirable only when air cooling is no longer adequate to cool a component, such as with extreme overclocking, there is no room for a large air cooler, such as a case is too narrow for a tall air cooler or you need single height GPU cards to allow cramming in more of them on a MOBO that doesn't have enough PCI-e slots spaced far enough apart for multiple double height air cooled GPU cards and you cannot or do not want to use PCI-e risers.

As already pointed out, even water cooling requires fans to cool the radiators. The fans actually have to work harder to push and/or pull air through a radiator than through an air cooler, which means the fans will run faster and be noisier. Usually, more fans will be required because of the larger radiators required to equal or improve on the performance of an air cooler; a 120mm AIO water cooler will not perform as well as some of the better aircoolers.

Unless you are already using a top quality, multi-fan air cooler with a high quality fan (or multiple fans) and you have good case ventilation, you would be better off making sure you have enough high quality (i.e. quieter for the same amount of air flow) case fans to move air through your case adequately and are using a good quality air cooler (stock air coolers don't have enough surface area to cool adequately unless the fan runs faster, which makes more noise).

Keep in mind, no matter the quality of the components used, all water cooling systems are subject to leaks (water and elctronics do not mix well) and are high maintenance. The coolant has to be changed frequently and the system cleaned to avoid a buildup of algae and other organisms that will eventually impede water flow.

I agree with lady, unless you have a need to dissipate tons of heat air coolers are way better in the long run. If you have a Low FPI (fins per inch) RAD then you can run your fans pretty low. I have a low FPI rad and it would still make some noise if not for the gentle typhoons on it. I also agree they are very high maintenance, I had a pump die recently and had decided it was time to change the layout of my case once I found out my MOBO tray could hold drives. I'm much happier now that all of the water is in the basement of the case. Got some better cables run done too. Much happier to be off the slow laptop.

Put it up on EBay and see.
I don't need it so my thoughts are irrelevant on price

Put it tougher in a part list at pcpartpicker and subtract at least 50 I would think as a starting point.
