    The case is crap - get something that moves air - 220mm in the door, some 120mm front and back!

    In that sense get something decent! The case is the nerve to a healthy system

    meh, if you are not in a hot country then it may do!

    This case is a misconception by design - two intake fans but only one exhaust means it's an oven.
    Look for parity in fan numbers!

    My power supply is the other exhaust fan. Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V version 2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC ... - Retail with a 135 mm fan balance the intake vs exhaust balance. Or am I incorrect?

    Okay, as said before, if you are not living in Australia, where summer room temps can easily reach 35+ celsius, or a similar hot country/state it will do for you. Otherwise another fan would be advised.
