Could you explain to me why you recommended the i5-3430 (I assume that's a typo and you mean 3450 because I can't find 3430 on newegg or microcenter) over the i5-3550 for non-overclocking?
Is there any reason why someone would want to buy a cpu cooler if he/she is not overclocking? The reason I ask is because this computer will need to move between my dorm and my house every few months (an hour-long drive) and I've heard that the heatsink fan could put pressure on the motherboard while driving. If it was potentially worth it to get a fan that was shorter or something I'd jump on that.
Finally, I really like the design of the HAF 912, but the unmitigated black color scheme is rather drab. This case is something that I hope to be looking at for a long time, so I'd want to look less like a generic case and more like a case that belongs to Tango. Do I have any options for personalizing the case after it's been delivered?
