Here's my .02 worth of advice.  First, check with the motherboard company
your looking to use for approved cases.  If the case your looking to use
isn't on their approved list ask the case company if they have a test
certification of approved motherboards.  If they haven't your own your own.

Keep in mind, you also want approved processor speed tests.  Can't stress
this enough with dual AMD solutions.  The higher the speed the hotter the
system.  I've found only a few case companies have actually done this work,
CiDesign and AIC to name a few.

If you really want to see how hot a AMD processor gets see the following
