According to the thermal sensor that came built-in with my X-Dreamer case, it's 85-90 degrees farenheit inside my case when my system is idle and 95 degrees farenheit at load.

Look at my sig to get an idea of what my components are. Are these good case temperatures? My case is also kind of messy from all the cables (8 case fans....) even when I use round cables and sleeved power supply wires. Would wire management (tie wraps) be very effective in lowering my case temperatures?

I'm thinking of buying a better case.....

If you want air flow get the CM-Stacker, but the case is heavy.

If you want an aluminium based case, either get the Lian Li but personally I don't think it is worthed cause they are overpriced or the Antec P160 or the Antex Super Lan Boy, but the last one is a bit small, depends how much space you need.
