Default new case

im starting to think about a new case since my P160W has no side fan and my chipset just cant handle that so right now i have a big fan in front of it to keep the chipset cool, can u guys recommend any good cases with a side fan and window?

thx

I have the same problem with my ultra d too. My 7800gt hangs over the chipset fan and it gets pretty warm. My case has a side intake fan but I dont think it really helps much. Of course it is right over the cpu fan. Have you tried replacing the chipset fan? Here's the one I would recommend http://svcompucycle.stores.yahoo.net/vc-re.html

got that one on it right now, ive also tried that other popular one but i dont remember the name right now, neither of them helped much, what about the antec P180? that has a lot of fan holes but the main reason im looking at it is that it has that airduct thing coming from the back that u can put an 80mm fan in, do u think that would work?
