For a case, really just find something that appeals to you with good airflow, and cable management.

OEM can only be installed on one computer and has to stay with that computer, even if it is sold.

Full retail version can be removed from old computers and installed on new computers as much as you like.

Well, are you using the fans you picked out to replace the ones that some with the hav 912? its supports 120mm fans and you have chosen two 200 mm fans so i dont think that will fit at all actually
