Hello everyone. 

I got this case 
(http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=15728) a while back 
and I've been dealing with the heat ever since.  I should also mention 
that mine is old enough that it didn't have the side fan by the HD's and 
no holes on top above the CPU.  I'm running a Gigabyte MB (IDE/IDE 
raid/SATA raid), dual ddr, dual bios) with a Athlon 2500+ and 512Megs 
ram.  Also in the case is a 6 gig root ide,  250 Gig /var/video, and 120 
gig /var/video/media.  I've replaced the back fan with one that has 
twice the air movement.  I've drilled a few holes above the CPU fan but 
I just can't seem to keep the heat below 80C with the top on when 
watching and recording at the same time (two capture cards).

Just wondering if anyone else has this case and how do you keep this 
thing cool.
