|Well, personally I'd say going with the Hyper is a safe bet if you're going to OC it a little. Considering that the stock TDP of that processor is only 70 watts and the max TDP of the Hyper 212 is 180 you have plenty of room.|
About the fan noise, I've never actually had one of these but most of the people who do seem to say that they aren't as noisy as you would think. Newegg say that the fan's max rated DBA is only 36. Of course, it's easy to simply grab a fan from Amazon (get ball bearings) and replace it if you aren't happy.
And for that system, liquid cooling would be a complete waste of time. The $$$ in a liquid cooling system for that would be better put into upgrading more RAM, better GPU and the likes.
