MSI partners with esports brand EVANGELION e:PROJECT to offer mecha-themed PC components
MSI is bringing back the golden age of mecha-genre anime in the form of PC parts by presenting its latest collaboration with EVANGELION e:PROJECT.
As one of the newer brands to grow through official licensing, the EVANGELION e:PROJECT itself offered things like peripherals, case fans, PC chassis, and more. ., and this is the first time a major PC component maker has knocked on the door and invited the guys (or vice versa, I’m no expert in industry spying) to do a deal on getting this nice design on MSI products. So, in this very first debut, 4 items are selected to bring the glory to EVA-01 TEST TYPE.
The first member is the mother of all boards, the MAG B660 TOMAHAWK EVA e:PROJECT wearing the classic EVA color scheme of purple and green with the extended VRM heatsink with a glossy EVA-01 TEST TYPE print while the iconic NERV sits on the chipset. MSI has also prepared dedicated color profiles for the MSI Mystic Light to ensure that everything is EVA-ready as soon as you boot up your rig. Man, even the PCB and CPU socket cover are custom printed.
Moving on to the cooling department, the MAG CORELIQUID C240 EVA e:PROJECT AIO Liquid Cooler not only shines your rig with the associated blue and green light combo, but also cools your CPU properly just like real EVA. Although the water block is not fully light permeable, at least the NERV logo is still there and I will take it any day.
For you apparently hardcore fans, the MAG A650BN EVA e:PROJECT PSU is more than just a “unit”, but a “Power Delivery System”. Anyway the 650W box of wires, magnets and capacitors is rated 80+ Bronze and also gets the purple + green paint job and I really appreciate that they painted the grille as well of the fan in purple, knowing that most people won’t even get to see the PSU exposed on the outside of the rig.
Finally, the stunning MSI GUNGNIR 110R EVA e:PROJECT combines the sleek design of the GUNGNIR 110R and the color scheme of the EVA-01 TEST TYPE with the front side panel running a clean tempered glass printed with the “AD. 2022 General Purpose Box Type Decisive Arms” in Japanese while the rear gets a crisp white print of the famous mecha. There’s no better way than to own a shell that looks and feels like TEST TYPE EVA-01, honestly.
In addition to releasing all these goodies, MSI is also running a few campaigns involving rewards for members and community posts, so head over to the official MSI x EVANGELION e:PROJECT page to learn more about them.
