I'm planning on getting the very same CPU you suggested Intel Core i5 4670K 3,4 GHz (3,8GHz turbo (Haswell).
The motherboard I had in mind were MSI Z97 GAMING 3, it is Intel 1150 socket as well. Because the ASRock UEFI as you said, is also not to my liking after having used it for 2 years.
If nothing is wrong with the graphic card, I won't switch it out for the moment.
About the CPU cooler, since I'm getting a new case also (be quiet! Silent Base 800) I were thinking of getting one of the same brand as well, since my newest PSU I bought is be quiet! Pure Power L8 630W 80+ Bronze.
Which is why I picked be quiet! Pure Rock. My old CPU cooler is a standard one that you plug with plastic rubber plugs in the MB and the back of the case, I think it came with the old CPU pack.
But I'm open for suggestions if you or any here got better advices. I actually got a 2900 euro budget, but I don't plan on using more than 640 because it wouldn't be wise to waste that capital my parents have invested for me on a computer when I could get a drivers license or more important stuff for example. While it is my money in the end, I think it's better to be more responsible with them. :P
As of now, the purchase in total will cost me 576, so I still have some room for changes.
