I have an old Antec P182 (are surely newer better choices now for a Quiet case)

Although this one has various sound proofing tech built into it, to get to the point where I could not hear the fans, I still had to run my 2,000rpm Sharkoon Silent Eagle fans at slow - med speed using a fan controller + inline resistors to sit quiet at approx 860 - 1400

- Get a fan controller that is capable of Really slowing the fan / stopping it perhaps

I would not recommend the fans I bought to someone after a really quiet system
- although I appreciate the "golf ball" dimples principle of reducing drag etc and they Do give great airflow for Measured noise... to my ear, they create a slightly annoying noise compared to the soft purr of a well designed fan without the dimples

I imagine since I built my system 2 years back there are some interesting new fan choices out there

Well, Good luck with your build choices
