Are you having heat related problems or did you just want to upgrade to a nicer case?

One of my AM3 systems (Sempron 140 overclocked to 3.0GHz) doesn't even have any case fans, the cooling is handled entirely by the power supply fan.

Just be sure of ESD and watch standoffs and mounting screws.

You should NOT remove the CPU's heat sink if you have not had any heating issues related to your CPU. If you do then you will need to remove all thermal compound and properly reapply new compound. If you need a guide for this we can recommend one, but if there is nothing wrong with it and it does not interfere with removing and replacing the hold down screws, don't mess with it. (If it ain't broke don't fix it)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
