i think you are out of your mind for considering a case that costs 350.00
but, it is pretty wicked.
so, have fun with your craziness.

If you're willing to spend that much, on a case, then look at the Cooler Master Stacker 830. That has great cooling, when you add more fans.

why should i downgrade to a e6320?; the e6600 isn't that expensive and there is gonna be a price drop thing around july 22 so it shouldn't cost me that much....
