Internal case cooling can be optimised with well placed fans and temperature based profiles.
When not acted on my other forces and all other things being equal, this is effectively true. But like all super-simple statements, there's more to it than this. Very humid air, even if warmer, will sink under colder, drier air.

And, of course, in a system case, you have fans that completely and totally upend this. So from a case heat management perspective, it's pretty useless unless you are looking at an early to mid 90's era PC with no case fans.
