What case has the most insane, over the top airflow that's budget friendly (to a point)

I've been getting high temps because of the low amount of fans in my case and was looking to just buy a bigger case because I plan on getting a new motherboard and CPU depending on the case also a new CPU cooler as well but I don't want to spend 500 bucks on a case because I've got other non-computer things I have to focus all my money on.

  1. You might not even need a case. What are your complete specs? Before I switched to an AIO, I had 4 fans. Two Noctua intake, 1 rear fan that came with the case, and one on my Hyper 212 EVO. Never went above 70c. You may also want to think about clutterness. If it is clutter, airflow will not be proper. Also you want to think about how air will be flowing.

    I have one of these, everything is removable for maximum airflow and it comes with two 140mm fans.

  5. My wife picked up this case https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FLR48d/nzxt-case-phan001rd

    I think it is a bit overkill, but it has plenty of fans, with an onboard fan controller. She only got it because of a certain color scheme she wanted, but it should meet your needs.

    Again, you don't need 18 fans to keep it cool, it's all about airflow, ambient temps, and clutter space.

  6. I have a Cooler Master CM690III. You can remove basically everything from inside it to maximize airflow. Comes with 1x200mm front and 1x120mm back. Check it out.

    The system is very organized and I've taken out Drive cages to make it cleaner. Everything doesn't go over 80c but I'd like it at around 50c

    My biggest pet peeve is the CPU temp on my fx 6350

  8. Well how many fans do you have? What cooler are you using for your CPU? Again, a case may not be necessary.

    But are you going to be upping your components?

    I'm going to ryzen and getting a 2nd 970 just to have SLI. I have a push pull config on a 240mm radiator (forget the brand I think it's corsair) with aftermarket blue fans. I've actually got 5 fans if you count the push pull

  10. I've also got high abeiant temps that I can't fix (75f) so It sorta screws me over

  11. So basically all of your fans are on the radiator. I would probably invest in some noctua fans. I mean you can go out and get a bigger case with more slots for fans, but these Noctua fans are the truth.
