I am looking for a good Mid-ATX Case for this build. I want it to be black. I am considering the Phanteks Enthoo Pro since it is amazing, but I am not sure I will need all of that space. Thanks in advance! PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

I really like my fractal r4 blackout with window... check them out.

Does this one prevent air flow since it is noise reducing?

No, it sucks air in thru the vents that go all the way up the front sides (at the front corners), and at the botttom. they also come with filters at the front and bottom. I haven't used mine yet but I did a lot of research before I bought one.

Well I haven't got out the bois yet because I'm waiting on windows 8.1 to arrive, also waiting to catch a msi 970 in stock. but in the msi z97 bios I turned the hyper evo 212 fan all the way up, and switched the 2 case fans to 12 volts with the fan controller the r4 came with. the 212 did stand out but still pretty silent, especially compared to my 360... the r4 can hold 6 fans, cooling shouldn't be a problem.

Look at my build, you can see the vents I'm talking about in my build pictures

Enthoo Pro should be fine for that build. If you want a smaller case, look at the NZXT S340 or the Fractal Design Define R4. I still would take the Enthoo Pro over either of those cases any day.

No, it has pretty good airflow.

Why not get the z97 gaming 5 if you want a msi board? I paid $144.99 for mine about a week ago off ebay
