Smile PC Case Trouble

Hello everyone it's my first post and I wanted to ask something. This is my build:

CPU:Intel i5 4690k

CPU Cooler:Cooler Master Nepton 280L

MOBO: ASUS Maximus VII Hero

GPU: MSI nVidia GTX 970

RAM: 2x4GB Kingston HyperX Beast 2400MHz

SSD: Samsung 840 250GB EVO

HDD: Western Digital 3TB Black

PSU: Seasonic X-750

Monitor: Asus VS247H

Now I would like to ask you something: First what do you think of my build? Second , and the most important question, which case do you recommend? This is a gaming build but I really need help with the case I was thinking of the Corsair 760T but is there a better solution? Thank you!

What do you link in a case?

Mid tower/full tower
airflow/ silence
watercooling at any point, or just air
closing front panel or not
budget

preferably a full tower (although I don't mind a mid)
Silence is a premium but I do need good airflow.
I need room for a 280mm radiator and as many fans as possible.
I don't mind any kind of front panel but the maximum budget is about 250$.

I live in Serbia and I think you can't find this case here. I'm looking into it but if it doesn't work out is the Corsair 760T the best choice?
