Default Changing Cases?

I have been using my current Aspire casefor about 1.5 years and havn't been real happy with it lately. I have been thinking about switching to an Antec Performance I P180B Antec Performance I P180B .
My only concern is that even with the logical placement of the case fans, it won't keep my system cool. My aspire case is fairly large, so I think that my PSU cables should reach everything. Anyone have experience with this case?

ya the airflow in that case from the factory really doesnt look like it could cool the whole case.
