Default Taking high end stuff and put it in a tight case with good cooling

Ok as title says taking nice computer and putting in case thats like 25% smaller. I want to do it for one reason, cooling! my pc went up like 20 degrees celcius jsut by putting it under my desk. When i tested it with this dell case (idk lol) i got less temps but with a dell system. Idk you tell me, lol......

If you plan to go ahead with this idea, make sure you use 4 things:

1) A high-performance aftermarket CPU Heatsink
2) At least 2 case fans, one blowing air in, one blowing air out
3) RAM heatsinks - passive is ok, active is better for overclocking
4) An LCD Thermal Display (lets you check how hot it is inside your system) (optional)

Good Luck

Unless you really want a new case you might want to just look into better cooling options than you currently have. Which temperature do you seem to be having the most problem with? Getting a better HSF for your vid card or CPU, along with a beefier case fan could easily be cheaper, easier, and get better results.

What does your cooling currently consist of and what temps are you getting?
