It should be. My case is real cool to the touch even when my room is warm. I think spacious room allows efficient cooling by preventing heat buildup.

It could be my case though. It's all aluminum and the PSU has its own air intake from the side. 4 low speed fans most likely contributed to it as well. It's a good design.

To be honest, I didn't think it was this big but I'm glad I got it.

This is the inside after removing the rail and the bays. The mATX mobo gives you the idea of the size.





After full assembly and leaving out a bay.

It's a Xigmatek Gigas cube case. It's rather big but I like it. It sells for $150 at Newegg but I got it at $80 off. That's for the silver case not the black which I would rather have but the black one is full price darn it.

I typically like to stick to efficient cheap cases just because of this. I have never purchased a case more than 80 bucks.

I got a Corsair 650d for 165, and my blackhawk for 200, notice both cases are basic black boxes so they aren't ungawdly ugly especially since they're in my living room.
