I'm still a bit concerned over my GPU Temps. Would like to make sure.

I also like smaller cases, but to be honest, if they are for a gaming build then airflow should still remain a priority and concern for you. Because of that , I think there are other cases with similar dimensions that are much better for your purposes. I mean, you are getting a 20 degree increase in heat because of the case. That is generally unacceptable. Micro case or not.

I think temperatures of under 90 degrees are probably still ok. Though I would personally do something about it. Especially when ambient temperatures rise in summer

I managed to bring the 85*C down to 77*C by switching 2 of my exhaust fans to intake fans.

Ran Heaven 4.0 for 45 Min and it stayed steady at 77*C. Still a bit warm but I guess it's better then nothing. Still considering if I should just switch it for the Prodigy since that has side vents.
Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this?

If you are handy with some tools you can modify the left side panel for more air flow


That's what I'd look into doing. Maybe attach a fan to the side if it would fit.

77 running a benchmark is much better, and you should be fine running it like that for quite a bit. Though the Prodigy might be better.
