getting a new case solved my heat issues for my gpu I had some random oem case before and my gpu I wouldn't say overheated but it ran at around 70c with fans on 80%
on full load and now with my new case and a 200mm side fan it runs a 50c with the fans running on 40% so yea it does make a big difference

At least, with every case I've ever had... and both of my last two systems were wind tunnels.
sorry but that is complete nonsense...

creating possitive air pressure creates great airflow and actually replaces the hot air with cold instead of just mixing it which is what a cheap case or the side off will do
