The system temps very good if thats exactly room temperature.

Mine now is 3 degrees above room temp.

If a better CPU heatsink/fan was used, the results would probably be much better.

Still, it'd be too loud for me

Yeah, there is just no point in doing all that, no point at all. I reckon water cooling, and a couple of good 120mm fans, would give better results.

The only thing that puts me off that case is the front... The bit at the bottom looks awful

But alot of case manufacturers do forget the most important rule.
What do you mean? It comes with only 3 120mm fans, and the stock positions are the top and back of the top chamber and one in the middle of the lower chamber. They did that so there can be two thermal zones to manage cooling efficiency. If you're talking about the front door, the sides have openings all over the top, bottom and sides for air to get through.

Fair enough. must be a rather powerful fan inside there still though, but Antec have never been bad a cooling anyhow.

If I was to design a case, I'd implement fan grills into the overall design for maximum cooling
