RGB Mayhem : X299 Build with MSI GTX 1080 TI Lightning Z & InWin Chassis

An absolute beast of a GPU, the MSI GTX 1080 TI Lightning edition was doled out in very limited quantities to official MSI partners not long ago and instead of hiking up the price and selling them to make a quick buck, we selected a handful of lucky customers who ordered a regular GTX 1080 TI powered custom gaming PC and gave them out as free upgrades!

Photo’s don’t really do it justice, but the very slick fully programmable RGBs that light up the card through an diffuser to smooth out the effect just like G.Skill’s Trident Z RGB RAM look spectacular.

Valkyrie Custom Gaming PC in NZXT Source 340 White

An affordable yet powerful beast of a gaming PC that looks clean – sure to power our customer’s gaming needs for years to come.

With a primarily black and white theme going on the little red accents around the CPU cooler fans really pop.

The NZXT Source S340 White edition with it’s matte black interior finish not only looks great but has plenty of room for future upgrades.


This week @ Evatech, Liquid Cooled GPUs, Brushed Aluminium, SLI & TridentX RAM

As we creep up to Christmas the orders just start flooding in! While a lot of the orders are pretty similar, well rounded, economical, good value for money custom PC builds, there are always a few that make even our tech team to assemble these things all day every day, stop and snap a photo.

Without further ado, here is just a small sampling of some of the bests this week to give a few ideas for your next custom gaming PC.

Why liquid cool your CPU when you can liquid cool your GPU? The Seahawk from MSI is co-engineered with Corsiar using their tried and true H55 pump and radiator, prefixed to the MSI PCB and encased in a blower air cooler for the VRM heatsinks.


Blue RAM, Blue LED CPU Cooler and Blue PSU Cabling coming together nicely on a matt black MSI motherboard and glossy white NZXT case.


Love them or hate them, the Steamcastle from Deepcool is definitely different. They might be on their way out and stock is getting hard to come by, so this might very well be one of the last we build.

G.Skill’s black and white TidentX DDR4 memory never fails to look pretty in any build, no sharp contrasting colors, just sleek glossy and understated while still being sharp and most importantly, a rock solid performer.


With a customer base so geared towards gaming, the number of SLI builds we get it’s a lot higher than you might guess. It’s by no means cheap, and a single card is always more cost effective, but if you need ALL the power you can get, it’s always an option.


If you your looking for a premium quality chassis, something that just screams ‘premium’ at a glance, InWin’s brushed metal and tempered glass 900 series are tough to beat.

MSI X99A & Z97A USB 3.1 Ready Motherboards Now @ Evatech!

MSI has refreshed their entire Z97 and X99 line to include USB3.1 support! These models can easily be identified by the ‘A’ in their name (X99-A / Z97-A) and sport a mix of type A and type C connectors.

For those not already familiar with the new USB 3.1 technology, it offers multiple advantages over standard USB 3.0 ports. First and foremost as you would expect, transfer speeds have significantly improved with real world benchmarks showing 50-75% increases over USB 3.0 in reads and 30-50% in writes depending on the environment. Secondly,  with USB 3.1 comes the Type C connector, much smaller than standard USB connectors and best of all, it’s reversible!
