Default Need advice for cases

I have a piece of **** case atm with no side, So I'm gunna upgrade my case since I just bought new hardware (look in sig).
So I want a case that stays VERY KOOL. Can any of you guys recommend cases to me? Trying to look for one less than $100 dollars. Another thing, How do you check your cpu temperature?

You could check out the computer stores at the area you live at or look at For the mobo temp theres programs that you could use or your mobo should come with a program that tells your temps already.

The BIOS is the easiest way to check the temperature.

This case is only $25 over:

but anyone on your budget. Cases are personal preference. I love the Tt Kandalf case so much that I brought it even though it costs £120.

120mm fans move more air at a low Db. So they will keep it cooler.
