Welcome to SPCR!!!!
If you like Lian Li go for it, the most important thing is that you are happy with what you buy, given that its not the ideal case to build quiet, it can be done, specially if the included fans are not that great, you can always go with aftermarket.
For case fans, there are very good options out there that will match well with the Asus FanXpert2+ control, some to considerScythe Gentle Typhoon - 1150RPMNoctua NF-S12B redux-1200
The Asus Maximus Gene will have FanXpert2+ that will help you keep the fans at their minimum on idle, and ramp up depending on the temperatures. Given that its a micro ATX motherboard, that will have the PCIe 16x on the first physical slot, then its important to chose a cooler that wont overlap with it. I would suggest either of the following because of its performance/price/noiseScythe Kotetsu
since its cheap and performs well for what it costsThermalright HR02 Macho
, the new rev b comes with nickel plated pipes and the black/white TY147 fan that usually drops more than the standard grey/green TY141, so its a nice combo.
For the GPU, get a either of the following, Asus GTX980 StrixMSI GTX980 Gaming
For PSU, i would suggest Seasonic Platinum SS-660XP2KINGWIN Lazer Platinum Series LZP-550
For the memory, i would go with low profile memory, i have used on Asus Maximus Gene IV and VI, and now on MSI, and many other builds, and no issues Crucial Ballistix Sport Very Low Profile 32GB Kit (8GBx4) DDR3-1600 1.35V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory Modules BLS4C8G3D1609ES2LX0
, crosscheck that you will benefit from the 32gb on your editing, else go with 16gb kit or the 8gb kit to save some $$$. This memory is so small in height, that will allow you to place any fan on the front of the cpu cooler.
Good luck on the build,
