It's a nice looking case but doesn't seem like it can handle high-end parts when it comes to cooling.

Aesthetically pleasing, but those temps would probably worry me just a little bit, especially with beefier hardware. I tend to be a little paranoid when it comes to that

I don't mind the look. Maybe with better fans might bring the temps down.

mind you there is 2 versions of the case with the same name. one with a window and the other has solid panel with fan mounts. I figure as long as you don't have a cooler over 160mm~ than you can mount some on the side.

 

I think the temps are because of the slow fans. while they run at a decent speed, the CFM is the problem. Either way, you have to spend more money for better preformance when those extra fans could pay for a nicer case.
