Should I buy HAFX or HAF 922 for the above config?
I am not an overclocker and will not overclock.
Should I invest for the Cooler Master CPU Cooler? Will the CPU temp be reduced if I make use of a CPU Cooler?
It won't make much of difference as long as there is some form of cooling and you don't run the CPU at 100% for hours on end. If you live in a hot country you my want to consider the extra cooling just for piece of mind. I know of several people who have had mild electrical fires/short circuits on their computers during hot weather (30ºC+).
The other thing is that having extra cooling takes up more power and unless you are using a water cooler it will be significantly noisier than a CPU cabinet with less cooling
It's down to personal preference but it shouldn't make much of a difference.
