What you think about my build - Lian Li Q25

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone it's my first post, I'm planning to build a little beast. I designed it to be portable(let's say that...) and powerful for 120Hz online gaming(dota 2, rest of non online games can be 60fps). In the meantime i'd like to listen to music(thats why i chose MAXIMUS IMPACT) and watch pure 1080p AVC movies. My build:
CPU: i5-4670k
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI IMPACT
GPU: MSI GTX 770 TF 4GB(just to be safe before next generation of consoles)
RAM: G.Skill TridentX 2400MHz CL10 2x8gb
PSU: BeQuiet 650W DARKPOWER P10 80 GOLD PLUS(do i need this big or is it better to stick with 550W? help rolleyes.gif )
Thermalpaste - prolimatech PK-3(how much do i need 1g or 5g?)
Case: Lian Li Q25
Radiator: Prolimatech Samuel 17
Cooler for Prolimatech: Prolimatech Bue Vortex 12 or Scythe GlideStream 120 mm ?
And from my current rusty E8500 & MSI 8800ultra PC build:
HDD: WD Green 2TB(music, movies, data)
SSD: Samsung 128GB SSD840 non-pro version(maybe buy another and RAID them, what you think?)
My question is: is it possible to play dota 2 @ 2560x1440 @120fps with this build ?
Will those parts fit? I'm still considering coolers and radiators(main focus is:they need to be silence, i'm not heavy overclocker)
I'm wating for your opinions guys!

Tridents are a bad idea in a small case
550W is fine
Interesting choice of case,but do you need the HDD bays?
1440p 120fps dota 2? I don't think it'll vsync,but yeah,the graphics chops are there for high fps.

1. The case is amazing for the number of HDD you can fit in such a small case, so there might be better options for you if you dont need that.
2. no front usb on the case. (just pointing it out incase you overlooked it.)

They gonna overheat or what? What would you suggest for this build, i found that 2400 mhz @ CL10 are pretty sweet spot in performance basing on:

and personally, RAMs never failed me(got 3 computers so far with SDRAM(unknown cheap brand, probably kingston, later another DDR2 533mhz kingston, and my last 800mhz cl4 mushkin:) They need to be 2x8GB.

Probably i don't need that much space for HDDs, for sure i need 2: one for SSD and one for bigass HDD(got almost full 2TB drive) in future i may buy another SSD for RAID, but they are pretty thin) To be honest i chosed this case because of beautiful aluminium design, Front USBs are not problem for me, got broken front USBs in my NZXT Lexa for 3 years and i'm still living with that wink.gif If you know any nice-looking(in your opinion of course) cases, you can point them out here. Thanks for feedback.

Fractal Node 304 or Silverstone FT03 Mini,depending your preferred orientation.
Tridents are a bad idea because of the height of the fins. It interferes with air coolers.Also, lower cas on the ram is better than high MHz. So some low profile (like Gskill Sniper or Ares) would work better,in 1866 cas 8/9.
No need to raid ssds.

FT03-mini is nice looking indeed Allan, but I wouldn't recommend it with that GPU. That case needs a closed-shroud card or it will run very hot smile.gif

Indeed like that, but unfortunately that 770 is a few millimetres too long, so you'd have to cut an opening in the bottom of the frame. The FT03-mini is a lovely design idea, but being completely closed on 4 sides it has limited GPU support. The best card it could fit with reasonable temperatures and no cutting was the EVGA 680 Superclocked, but that's discontinued. If you don't mind cutting the hole in the bottom, then it can fit the 780/Titan with the stock cooler which also has a closed shroud.

Node 304 it is then.

I could be mistaken, but I believe dota2 requires alot of cpu power in order to reduce those min fps spikes. So you might wanna get better cooling in order to overclock (both in terms of cpu cooler and the case which allows for better/bigger ones)

SG08
Q28 (i find it ugly but more room for cpu cooler)
Phenom Micro-ATX (should save you $50 on the motherboard which you can put somewhere else)
EVGA Hadron Air


To think about:

q25 (with front harddrive cage removed which should allow you room for a decent watercooler H90?, you would put your ssd at the bottom of the case and harddrive mounted on front top somehow)
q25 (with sfx power supply, you might be able to fit a NH-L12)
