Atm the case am using is Bitfenix Comrade Midi tower, while playing games the computer gets hot. There is easily 10C difference if i take the side panel off so figured the airflow in the case is bad. But i have no idea how to look for a case that fits everything and has a good airflow to keep it cool.
This is the Components i own - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/gBzjLk
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks

The bitfenix is a pretty good case. How is your cable mgt? Does the inside look like a rat's nest or do you have cables, pw connectors, etc routed behind the mb tray, wires tied up, etc? Good airflow through the case?

The amd stock hsf is ok for basic use however if you are going to game, then you do need a better hsf. I use and recommend the coolermaster 212 type hsf. These are not expensive and they do a great job. I have 3 of them; one on an overclocked i2500k and two on overclocked fx4350s. None get over 55~57C when running prime95.

Note these are NOT the easiest things to install. You have to pull the mb to install the backplate [unless your case has a cutout]

the cable management is as good as the cable's allow, the case i have only has 1 fan for outflow of air and i don't see any obvious areas to add another fan (i know there probably is). i did try the coolermaster 212 and it was too big for the case so i settled with arctic freezer pro 7 rev.2. What i need really is a case that has at least 2 fans and could fit the 212 incase i decided to try it again.
