No experience with this particular board but the xeon D 1528 board is quiet and cool with a 60mm noctua placed on top of the heatsink. You should have enough clearance with the 2u chassis you've referenced above.

I don't know your definition of quiet but for me the 1U supermicro option is not quiet. Even idling, it is definitely noticeable and the fans definitely Rev up under load.

I'm using a supermicro 745b sq chassis with my pentium d setup.

It's quiet and can be easilly "converted" to a tower/workstation or gpu server chassis :D
