Aloha Oliver,

For what it's worth. Make sure the case has plenty of ventilation and a 
couple of fans.
We just had to replace an older case housing new mobo etc. with case 
with a front fan as well as the big side one and one on the back. Many 
of the "newer" CPU's need more cooling.  Both Intel and AMD.
