MSI Unveils Evangelion-Inspired PC Series

MSI has announced a limited series of computer components based on the iconic Japanese anime “Evangelion,” which was first released in 1995. The MSI x Evangelion e: Project Edition series includes special versions of the MAG B660 Tomahawk mainboard, the MAG Coreliquid C240 ​​liquid cooling system, the MPG Gungnir 110R computer case and the MAG A650BN power supply. All of them have a unique style of decoration.

The black and purple color scheme of all four devices reflects the color of the humanoid combat vehicle “Evangelion 1” that appears in the anime series of the same name. The picture is complemented by thematic drawings and Kanji inscriptions, which can be found on the side walls of the MPG Gungnir 110R computer case, for example.

The MAG B660 Tomahawk EVA e-Project motherboard is based on the Intel B660 chipset and was developed for use with the recently introduced 12th generation Intel Core processors. It offers support for DDR5 RAM up to 6200 MHz, PCIe 4.0 slots, M.2 SSD support with PCIe 4.0 interface, multiple USB 3.2 Gen 2 slots, 2.5 Gb LAN and wireless Wi-Fi support.

The board is equipped with a 12 + 1 + 1 Dual Rail Power Supply Subsystem (VRM) that supports MSI’s proprietary Core Boost and Memory Boost technologies. Incidentally, the MAG B660 Tomahawk EVA e-Project is the only version of the Tomahawk board that offers support for DDR5 memory. The regular B660 Tomahawk only works with DDR4 modules.

The Gungnir 110R EVA e-Project computer case uses a black and purple design like the motherboard above. It has a tempered glass side panel, comes with four pre-installed ARGB fans, and has a USB Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and two 3.5mm audio jacks on the front.

The housing allows the installation of three 120 mm additional fans and also supports the installation of 240 mm (top) as well as 280 and 360 mm (front) LSS radiators. Inside there is space for two 2.5-inch SSDs as well as space for a larger 3.5-inch drive. In the latter case the connector is combined. This means that instead of a 3.5-inch hard drive, you can install two further 2.5-inch SSDs or the same compact HDD in it. A processor cooler up to 170 mm high, graphics cards up to 340 mm long and a power supply unit up to 250 mm long can also be installed.

The maintenance-free LSS MAG Coreliquid C240 ​​EVA e-Project supports current AMD Socket AM4 and Intel LGA 1700 processors. The cooling system comes with two 120mm ARGB fans with speeds of up to 2000 rpm. Externally, the LSS is almost completely black. Aesthetics are added by the ARGB backlighting of the water block, as well as the already mentioned fans.

Technically, this cooling system differs from the bulk of other LSS on the market due to its original design. The manufacturer relocated the pump from the water block to the radiator, which increases rotor resources while reducing the noise of LSS operation. A bonus to this design is the ability to install a radiator in any orientation, including under the water block. With conventional LSS, where the pump is located directly in the water block, this is not possible, as in this case air bubbles get stuck in the pump.

The A650BN EVA e-Project power supply offers 85% efficiency and is therefore certified for the 80 Plus Bronze power supply. The power supply is 650 watts. The length of the network part is 150 mm. Like most modern power supplies, the A650BN EVA e-Project is equipped with many protection mechanisms such as OCP (Overload Protection), OVP (Over Voltage Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection), OTP (Overheating Protection) .
