    With my current case, my PSU sits in front of my fan on my heatsink for my cpu, about a 1/4 inch of airspace. I'm looking at a case where the PSU sits above the mobo. How much cooler should my cpu temp be with a new case?

    Going from a case with crappy airflow to one with good airflow I've seen drops of 5-8° c in some more extreme cases. Antec makes some nice cases, so does Lian Li. Look for one that will let you mount a fan in the front and one in the back, ideally larger than 80mm, 92 or 120mm as the larger fans can move more air than a smaller one at the same noise level.

    Lian Li is SO FUCKING MUCH BETTER than antec. Antec cases are really fairly lame.

    Also look at the Coolermaster CMStacker (only the CMStacker)... Awsome case for cooling.

    Silverstone also makes awsome cases.
