(Sorry my bad English) So my actual case its pretty small and hot like 90 C on cpu package and 75 gpu on stress is the damn case so I see slme options in my country but here there are very bad and expensive options like twice the price here but I found this: Thermaltake Commander MS-I black with a low price and it seems very good for me but can you help me, theres a lot of people complaining about its cable management and fan options and other things! Theres anyone that know if this case is good for my specs and I should to form it or wait to other model?

Specs

8gb Ram DDR3
1tb hard drive (I will get another one)
Intel i7 3770
Gtx 960 2gb Evga ssc (I will get the 1070 sc)
Motherboard Intel DH77EB
Corsair CX600
Stock cooler cpu
Extra 3 fans

I can't see any issues with installing fans. Aside from having more fan options than most motherboards have headers, not really anything wrong there. There is a possibility that a large CPU cooler or tall memory may interfere with fans being placed in the top.

Cable management won't be a dream in this system, but it won't be horrendous either. You should be able to route most everything under the tray The GPU is going to be right above the PSU wires and shouldn't be too big a deal. With your non-modular power supply there will be a bit of a mess in the bottom, but all computers used to look like that.

Here you can see dozens of systems built in that case for any fitment questions you might have:

Here's what a reasonably done one should look like:

And here is an excellent example of a high end system in an average case:

75 GPU under a full load is quite good.

90C on the CPU is above average. If the cooler is the stock one, it is more the problem than your case.

I guess we would need to know your specific concerns with the case, what other people say doesn't really affect what you are trying to do.

From what I can see it is a fairly narrow case, but the side panel is not flat on the backside, which should provide a little more room for cables. It is a non-modular design, so you won't be able to remove drive cages for long GPUs. It does have the modern cut-out for replacing CPU coolers without motherboard removal. And it has quite a few fan options.

If you want more room for more airflow than pretty much any bone stock mid-tower ATX case is going to do better than most off the shelf OEM cases.

I know its a case problem but also I will ger one generic cooler that will help the temperatures but I see YouTube reviews and people on the comments says that the cable management its very poor and its hard to out fans, you think I should wait a little more to get more options?
