i'm looking to build a new system with ivybridge, z77 mobo and a gtx680 and am having trouble deciding on a case. i was wondering how important the case is when it comes to temperatures? or is it how many fans are inside etc?
You don't have to spend a fortune on cases to get reasonable air flow.
Fans do play a big role, but to be honest, I don't think I'd ever use a cases stock fans, and would always replace them with aftermarket fans anyway...
If I had the money, I'd buy myself a 550D. Gorgeous looking case
