It's likely to be trial and error. The voltages you're going to need to maintain stability are unpredictable. The temperatures you're going to get are dependent on the voltages you end up needing, the degree of overclock, and other factors like case size, air circulation. Also, the efficiency of other components such as the heatsink plate, paste, how efficient you system is at circulating coolant are all going to be a factor.
Also, tbh, watercooling isn't actually particularly quieter than decent air-cooling systems which have been designed with noise levels in mind. You may run at lower temps, but running at very low temps within the hardware's tolerance range or running at a high temp within the tolerance range is a non-issue. You may shorten the lifespan of your hardware, but as the system you're getting rid of isn't that old spec, I don't think that'd be a priority for you
