Default Best Computer Case

Hi, I built a system for my friend but he is whining non stop on how he thinks his case a Lian Li pc65 runs his system too hot. Are there any suggestions on a mid Atx case that will keep the system running very cool without water cooling? The maximum he can spend is $200. Normally I would go looking but college homework calls and im way too busy. thanks a ton!

OCC Fan, that does'ent help him.... AZNRockThis, well 200$ can get gim a great case. With that much money you can be very picky. Here are my suggestions.

http://www.frozencpu.com/cst-140.html

http://www.frozencpu.com/cst-138.html

Those are all top of the line cases. One or two were full-tower. But for better temps full-tower are the best. I wanted to give you more then 1 to pick from. I hope i helpet.

dude I own a Lian Li pc65 and it ownz....your friend needs to get off of the crack seriously. If it isnt cool enough then add a fan to the side of the case over the cpu and replace the stock case fans with tornado's. Also what type of processor is he running? Is it overclocked?

He has an AMD 64 3500 and he hasnt overclocked it, he is being a big baby about the whole ordeal. He wont stop whining until I "fix" the cooling problem. But thank you for the suggestions
