That case has awful cooling you want atleast 120mm intake and 120mm exhaust

this is my case:
Welcome to Thermaltake

it has adequate airflow as stock as there is vents at the front with a 80mm fan and 2x60mm exhaust fans although the stock fans are pretty bad so to make effective use of the case you need to buy some new ones . It is also my first mod and so far I have cut 7 holes in the top cover 2x40mm holes 1x80mm either side and a huge window on the top which goes virtually the entire length of the case and the width and the thing is still stable I was shocked to be honest and the steel is hard work to get through I had to use a pillar drill because I broke/bent 3 drill bits using a standard handheld drill. I was expecting the case to be made out of cheap and cheerful weak steel but it wasn't

You don't ALWAYS need front and back intake as look at the Centurion 5...no front intake but still really good cooling. You just have to do a bit of research.

Yes, the Coolermaster case is way better for cooling.

Try to get something with a 120mm intake and exhaust.
