While the sound dampening materials in cases marketed for their quietness help reduce some noise, a build's quietness is mostly determined by what's on the inside. For this reason, this list is more focused on air flow rather than sound dampening materials.

Criteria
* Compactness
* Ventilation
* If it's a tower case, it should support 140mm and a medium-large air cooler.
* Build quality and aesthetic
* Value for the price

Silverstone Sugo (~$40)

Cooler Master Elite 110 (~$40)
Image

Thermaltake Core V1 (~$50)
One of the larger cases on the list, but unique style and well ventilated.
Image

Fractal Design Define Nano S (~$60)
One of the most well-rounded and solid choices on the list.
Image

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX (~$70)
May be harder to find nowadays, but it's elegant, perfectly sized.
Image

Fractal Design Node 202 (SFX) ($80)
This is the most compact case on the list to support a video card.
Image

Realan E-W60 (Pico) ($90)
The most compact case on this list (no video card). Aluminum. Vents on sides, back and bottom.
Image

NZXT H200i ($125)
Most expensive choice on this list, but may be my favorite.
