well its OK, you may find Antec Sonata under 100$ as well, quite and cool.

as this Ninja case has very tiny holes for 2 X fans outlets, this will resist air turbulence, resulting in noise and lesser air flow.

If you're that concerned with heat, find a really cheap case, and just leave the side panel off. It eliminates the need for extra fans, and noise.
Only trade off is dust, but who cares about a little dust.

With the side pannel off it creates more noise. There is nothing to keep all the noise in.
