Would moving from this case to this one affect airlow and raise temps

I have this cougar panzer max case which is a full tower case and i'm trying to move my parts from that to a mid tower case called gamemax starlight black frgb

That second case seems to have no front ventilation part from those tiny cutouts. This will cause a significant rise in temps. Why would you want to go from a perfectly good case to a terrible one? Also that new gamemax case is only 10cm smaller and that is mainly because the cougar has those handles. Without those it would only be a couple cm difference so this is a pretty pointless move to make the system smaller.

 

If you really want a tiny full size atx case then get a Riotoro cr1080 and a couple arctic p12 fans to put in front for airflow.

Even with the 3 front fans on the gamemax one ? it would still be more hot ?

Yes of course. No amount of fans is going to help the fact that there are basically no ventilation holes. You can only get so much air through those. Got a budget and what are your system specs?

 

Do you just want rgb in your case? If so plenty of cheap rgb 5 packs on amazon.

It's cheap for a reason. Plastic is cheaper than metal. It's just a bad case and skip it. I'd just keep your current case unless it really really is to big. If that is the case get the riotoro I mentioned and put some fans you like in it. You can't go too much smaller than that for atx.

 

With your specs that rgb case you wanted is gonna cause so many thermal issues.

Thank you for the great help, the only thing tempting me to change it is because i listed it on a local listing and i got a 100$ offer on it which is great, cuz i only paid 30$ more than that for it.

Might as well just keep the case if it's not being a problem.

Is it still performing good enough for you? If yes maybe upgrade if no then not.

i've read your answer and it was for me to understand it lol, you mean if my gpu is doing good then it's not worth it and if it's doing bad it is worth it then, yeah i'm easily getting around 144 fps on 1440p on games i play, thank you for the help and that's all.

Yup that is what I meant. If your card is gaming just fine then there is no reason for an upgrade. That and it's not like you'll get a 3000 series before januari :p.
