he needs wire management. with 2 120mm fans already on that area, a decent heat sink will do far more than blowing more air around a case that doesnt have heat problems now. honestly, who out there given the option between 2 case fans and an acf7pro, sitting there with a stock cooler says 'give me the case fans!' whats the best use of money if oc'ing is what youre after?

point is, you still need some case airflow for optimal cooling of all the internal components.

the poin is you can still get better case flow by moving one of the existing fans down to the front of the case making it an intake giving the case cool air in from the bottom and pushing the hot air out the top. also increase the fan speeds if you don't mind the noise any too much. if you do that then get the aftermarket heatsink and fan.
