Thinking of upgrading case

So as the title says I have a corsair Crystal 280x case and heard it’s not the best for airlflow although it looks nice! I just purchased a Asus rog strix 2080 super and noticed it went up to 80c and loud so before I started buying a better cpu cooler and fans to get more flow if I should just think about getting a better case. Any help would be appreciated and thanks for reading.

Any pointers for what you might like vis-à-vis cases? What’s your budget, and what other components do you have to accommodate? MoBo size, hard drives, etc?

So the budget I’m not sure but I definitely don’t want to spend what I did for this corsair case. I have a z390 micro atx build with a intel i7 8700 stock fan. 16gb ram and 2 120mm fans. Asus rog strix 2080 super 256gb ssd and 2 tb hdd.

I was actually looking at this model. And it has the front mesh as well. Thanks for the input!
