Well, as a general rule of thumb, you get what you pay for... and 39.00 for an aluminum case seems sketchy... my friend bought a similar case and the CPU ran at 53 degrees C with the case off... no ventilation at all. If you want a good breathing case, grab yourself a Lian Li... fans are in beautiful locations and the build quality is awesome... My favorite has to be my current case, the PC-61.
