MSI’s Evangelion Gaming PC Collection Is Fan Service Well Done

Last year, we were treated to a mockup of an MSI monitor with a Neon Genesis Evangelion touch, and it left us hungry for a full EVA Unit-01-themed setup. Although MSI has confirmed that it has no plans to release the display, the company has unveiled a limited edition component collection based on the iconic 90s anime, which means you can now say Shinji to get into your fucking PC case.

Dubbed MSI x Evangelion e:Project Edition, the lineup includes a motherboard, AIO cooler, case, and power supply. If you’re an anime fan, you’ll instantly recognize these purple-clad parts, as their aesthetic matches the main protagonist’s biomechanics. Still, the collection’s attention to detail extends beyond the color schemes, as its mobo even has numerical references printed on its PCB and CPU socket protector.

Of course, the real star of the show is the Evangelion e:Project case, which tops it all off with gorgeous Unit 01 side panel artwork. While the collection’s attention to detail makes the whole package somewhat niche, its overall design is surprisingly subtle, meaning you don’t have to be an anime nerd to appreciate the effort that has gone into the project.

It’s worth noting that while MSI’s Evangelion-themed pieces are undeniably unique, the collection is made up of existing products. Inside his custom MPG Gungnir are an MSI B660 Tomahawk motherboard, a MAG Coreliquid CPU cooler, and a MAG A650BN PSU.

The MSI x Evangelion e:Project collection is set to arrive in March 2022, so it won’t be long before we can house our graphics cards in one of the coolest PC cases we’ve ever seen.
