i don't understand what your case has anything to do with you only being able to use a p4 or an e8600.
and i think any 1156 cpu would actually run cooler than your current p4, especially the i3s and the i5 6xx series cpus since their die is made at a 32nm process.
Sorry I forgot to put my present MB is Ga 8aenxp 925xe sata 1 board. The Asus P5N-D board is 3gb/s Sata II that I could upgrade my P4 system too.
