I don't think the case is important as the power supply - and fans!
The case should fit 5.25" fans or larger as they tend to be
quieter than than 3.5" fans.
Also a decent heat sync - lots of copper and even fan connected to it.
Also, I would suggest upgrading your old hard drive. The stupid things are rated on a system that was meant for
electronics. Also, there's unseen space on it to accommodate when sectors go dead, so there's a lot a of wear and tear on them.
Get a handful of drives (at least three) and RAID them out for safety's sake. Or, if you want increased performance, get four drives and go RAID 10 (you'll need at least 4) and use a dedicated RAID card if they're cheap enough.
