I've got one, gorgeous and efficient, cool in both ways, I've run Kodi on it for over a year, never gets hot, never even makes the case feel warm. Quite expensive, but you pays your money...
There is a Gen2 Flirc case that is made for the Pi3. The Gen2 provides access to the Pi3 SD card and visibility to the LEDs. It's also supposed to have better metallurgy and molding due to improved manufacturing techniques. IMO, it is the best case for the Pi3. Yes, there are others that are full aluminum, but those will weaken the WiFi and Bluetooth.The Flirc has a plastic bottom that extends slightly up the side where the antenna is. The bottom has vent holes for air circulation, and a cutout for GPIO connections.
The other chips don't require cooling. The "CPU" (SoC) is the only chip that generates a lot of heat.
That one looks interesting, because it also has a non-metal area near the WiFi antenna. It's expensive, though.
