The idea of gaming brands collaborating with popular anime titles became a thing when ASUS announced its collaboration with Gundam for a selection of its ROG and TUF gaming PC components. MSI also wants a share of that niche market, prompting it to collaborate with Evangelion for the e:Project Edition collection.
MSI’s Evangelion-themed collection includes a motherboard, AIO cooler, PC case, and power supply–all of them having a purple and green color blocking with a theme that is based on Neon Genesis Evangelion. Leading the collection is the MAG B660 Tomahawk EVA e-Project, which is MSI’s B660 motherboard that is meant for use with Intel’s 12th-gen Alder Lake CPUs. The B660 supports DDR5 RAM at up to 6200Mhz, along with PCIe 4.0 slots, Gen 4 M.2 support, USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, 2.5G LAN, and WiFi 6E.
Power management is taken care of with MSI’s 12+1+1 Dual Rail power system, and MSI adds that this is the only Tomahawk motherboard that will support DDR5 RAM–if you have the cash for the latest RAM, this Evangelion-themed motherboard is your best option.
Next uo is the Gungnir 110R EVA e-Project ATX case, which features tempered glass for the front and side panels. It comes with four ARGB fans and a decent I/O selection in the front that includes a USB-C port, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and Mic In/Audio Out port. The mid-tower case can support three 120mm fans in the front, a single fan on the back, and two additional fans on top. The case supports 120mm to 360mm radiators. You also get two 2.5-inch SSD slot and a 3.5-inch hard drive mount that can be used to mount 2.5-inch drives using a combo tray.
The MAG Coreliquid C240 EVA e-project cooler supports both AM4 and LGA1700 sockets, and come with two 120mm ARGB fans. The center water block features RGB, while the cables are sleeved for cable management purposes.
Rounding up the collection is the A650BN EVA e-Project power supply, which is a 650w PSU with an 85% power efficiency and measures 150mm in length.
All four components under the MSI x Evangelion collaboration will be available soon, but there’s no word if MSI will make them available in the Philippines.
