Build

Owl Cage (First build)

by JacobDiep

Description

Beginner at OCing , got it stable to 4.7gHz.

Mostly used for gaming and schoolwork. Only problem is trying to sync up rgb of ram with motherboard rgb .

Noise is audible but when you have a headset on, it shouldn’t be a problem.

(Case fans were on backwards but have been fixed )

Part Reviews

CPU

Works great especially when I got it as a birthday gift. If didn’t get this would’ve gotten a i7 -8700k

CPU Cooler

Brings my 4.7ghz to 45-50 degrees during 7+ hours of usage . During prime 95 , temps go to max 60 degrees celcius

Motherboard

Great mobo. Good bang for the buck ,but only problem is rgb software where it won’t sync with anything else ( from what I’ve done so far )

Memory

Good looking and usually good for most air coolers. Only thing I had to do was raise the fan on cooler up a little.

Storage

Was originally going to go 500gb SSD with 2TB HDD, but made the switch realizing that it was going to cost the same if I went 1 TB SSD and 1 TB HDD. Was worth.

Storage

Does the work that I need it to, nothing to complain about yet.

Video Card

It does what I need to, looks very nice besides there being no backplate. Kind of impulse bought this and would've gotten a 1070 when I look back at it . I got it for 240 instead of 300 while it was on sale on amazon so I can't complain.

Case

Love the look of the case, great cooling and keeps my pc at stable 40-60 degrees depending on the load.

Power Supply

Does the job, got the 850 just cause it was same price as 650.

Wireless Network Adapter

Works great. I am one floor up from the connection and it's placed in the corner of my room behind a monitor and other things. Hasn't faltered at all.

Case Fan

Originally thought it was white, but disappointing to find out that it was grey. Probably my fault for not looking close enough. Does the job well.

Monitor

Beautiful monitor, pricey but well worth it.
