I have 2 Antec case fans, and they work very well. They're very quiet and move quite a bit of air. I highly recommend them.

It makes no difference whether its aluminum or steel. The only thing between the two that differs is weight... which aluminum clearly wins! As for cooling, it makes no difference.

Aluminum dissapates heat better than steel.

That doesn't mean anything; put fire to an 1/8 inch thick piece of steel with the exact dimensions as a piece of aluminum of equivalent size (doesn't matter what size they BOTH are), then take off the flame and record the temps and see which one cools down faster. Aluminum will get cooler faster. What do most electric motors use for heatsinks? Aluminum. What are most stock heatsinks for processors made of? Aluminum. Does anyone make a steel heatsink that has half a brain? No.
Thanks,
-Mitchell

Do you have a direct contact with flame inside your chassis?

Maybe in the topic of heating a steel and aluminum to outrageously high tempuratures and watching drop, aluminum takes the cake. However, according to that test, aluminum and steel CASES appear to score about the same. At one point I believe there was a single degree of difference.
