looking for a decent computer case..

hello i thought i would post here , i a have a computer build i have done and used a case i had already nothing fancy about the case. and seems to be keeping my temps at safe readings. i only hvae 1 80mm front fan, 1 80mm rear fan. but i was told i should still upgrade my case to one that has top fans and be able to use 120MM fans. so with that does anyone have some good recommendations on cases, one case i have heard people say is good is the COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. and would get better airflow. do you think its work changing my case or stick with what i got cause temps are cool as it is???

If you don't have a heat problem, I don't see the need to get a new case and more airflow to eliminate a problem which doesn't exist. I don't add case fans unless I start to experience problems. I find it best to buy just what I need after I know I need it. I find too many people go bonkers on airflow trying to keep their boxes cooler than is really necessary.

What i read from your post is you want an Upgrade. Just to buy a new case it seems. Is there a specific component that has high tempatures ?

I have an Antec 300, i am not a fan of led color lights I hate them. I have proper cable management and enough exhaust room for my system.

One of the downfalls of what i seen or what i heard from my case is, it needs a lot of dust cleaning, on the outside

all the temps are fine in the 30c range at idle heavy load test they only reach 49degs.. i had a few say i should get a case with fans on the top... but i was not sure i figure if temps are fine i would not need to.. but wanted to ask all the smart folks here...

As mentioned, if your temps are fine as they are - there's zero need to upgrade/change cases.

If you were having issues, sure. Improve/upgrade - But since you're not - it would be pointless.

Monster212 the only way exceesive heat would ever be generated is by Overclocking the CPU or GPU or upgrading to a very high end newer GPU that creates heat if under heavy load from intense gaming. A high end GPU might also require a bigger power supply too. If you are satisfied with all of the components in your system now no need to upgrade to reiterate what previous experienced posters have already stated.

True if there are no problems keep your current case, but there is upgrade-itis which hits us....

Your temps are perfectly fine. If you are looking for a new case because you think your temps are high, you don't need to. If you are looking for a new case just because you want one, go for it. I buy things all the time because I want it, not that I need it. Your temps are fine and you don't need a new case for that reason.
