I want to built a PC for around 1500 Euro mainly for CFD use (OpenFOAM). Which case should i choose and why? I want something subtle and quiet like Fractal Design DEFINE XL R2. Is that a good choice?

Thanks for Advice

Thank you for your reply. After some more googeling and watching test videos I think that a mid-tower should be big enough to fit all components. ARC Midi R2 is my new favorite.
