If you take the c9, it will go as low as 8-9-8 (maybe 7-9-7 but probably wont be stable), if you get the c7 you will manage 6-7-6 or 6-8-6 which is pretty good. Besides the memory will perform better, direct results are video encoding, gaming etc. As for overclock... when you oc you have to sacrifice stuff like latency to gain stability. But if you already have lowest latencies, then you are golden. There is a +ve side in spending those extra bucks but you have to decide for yourself if you want it or not.
PS: the cl9 ram will serve you fine too.
And yeah, dont get HAF, if you like the looks then get the HAF-X or something else the others have pointed out.
