Yes to all that Britton has said and me personally like the newer Coolermaster cases as they have the bottom mounts and some have really nice covers that slide over and "tidy" up the wiring coming from the PSU. I would send you a shot of mine if I were at home and might do tomorrow when I get up.
In the meantime I pulled up a pic to give you an idea of that cover. Oh and get onto tha cooler mate ASAP.

I'll just ask for the best they have then. I'm only buying stuff there because I bought the pc there and I have some store credit.

There is also a sort of air funnel attached to the inside of the case, I think it may obstruct the second fan I'm gonna have installed, should I have it removed? It's supposed to funnel the air from the processor cooler to the other side of the case.

Get rid of the funnel it obviously isn't helping. With the better CPU cooler you won't need it.

Ok, so I got my pc back today, I saw it working at the shop, when I got home it wouldn't turn and would beep x2, at the shop they said that problem only happened a couple of times in the span of 2 weeks, finally after trying several times it finally turned on.

They said it wasn't overheating, but just to be safe I had the funnel removed, installed a case fan, didn't get a new cpu fan because they didn't have any there, and also tidied up the cables.

They said the 2 beeps in the motherboard manual meant it was a gpu error, and that it probably was the gpu, but could also be the motherboard reporting wrongly because the problem was the motherboard.

I have my old gpu here, gonna leave it in for a week or so and see if the problem appears again, if so, it should be the motherboard right? The old gpu was fine, only used it for a year or so, then I got the one I have now.

CPU temp is now around 53o C while browsing.

No this points to the GPU being bad. If the board was bad it wouldn't work with either GPU.

It's strange because the gpu is the newest part of the pc.

My previous GPU went bad after a year while my current one is still lasting after 2 years. With high temperatures I wouldn't be surprised.
