I have an antec case with air filters at the front and I set the fans to air out thereby sucking air in throught the filters (kept clean)
The temp inside my case is always low.

Doesn't matter how good your case is, if you didn't setup airflow right your stuffs will overheat.

I use 2x140mm for intakes and 1x 140 + 3x120mm for exhaust. The back of the case is right next to an open window and because it's cold out now, I am gettin' 27-32 degrees C at most when running full load.
