it all depends on what type of cooling you are going to do. myself I went for water cooling because of the lower temperatures an quietness

I highly recommend the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. Fans everywhere,and plenty of room to add even more fans. Best case for cooling I ever had. I had the Alienware Area 51 ALX,and my buddy transplanted all the hardware from that case to the Level 10 with SUPER results. Light weight and easy to clean fan filters etc.

That Silverstone is a great case. Some other great cases are:
Mountainmods beastly case for water and a crap ton of rads.
HAF-X for air (populate all fan spots....and maybe upgrade the stock fans to bitfenix or similar ones)

Just configure your fans in your case so that you have fans bringing in cool air, pushing it across your motherboard and components, and exhaust fans venting the hot air out the back. You want to have good flow across your components.
