PC components and peripherals manufacturer MSI has updated five fan-favourite products with a white colour variant.
Starting with the chassis, MSI proposes MPG Gungnir 110R White, a 430mm (D) x 215mm (W) x 450mm (H) case supporting ATX/micro-ATX /mini-ITX boards and delivered with three pre-installed 120mm ARGB fans in front, one in the rear, plus a possibility to add two more. For I/O you get two USB 3.2 Gen 1, one USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C, and an audio plus mic jacks.
Now we need a motherboard to put inside this chassis. Here two choices are available: MPG Z690 Force WiFi or MAG B660M Mortar WiFi. The former is made of an eight-layer PCB with 2oz thickened copper alongside an 18+1+1-phase power design, DDR5 memory up to 6666MHz (OC) and PCIe 5.0, while the latter takes in a six-layer PCB, 12 DrMOS with duet rail power system, DDR5 up to 6200MHz (OC) and PCIe 4.0.
If you choose the Z690 board, then we recommend a K Intel CPU, and why not a Core i9-12900K? If a B660 is closer to your budget then a non-K CPU is a no-brainer, something like a Core i5-12400, which is a wallet-friendly chip with good performance. For white RAM, G.Skill’s Ripjaws S5 DDR5-5200 is a good starting point. SSD colours aren’t important thanks to the motherboard’s white heatsinks.
To power all of this, MSI’s MPG A750GF White is ready for duty. A fully-modular PSU with white cables, 100 per cent Japanese capacitors, 10-year warranty and 80 PLUS Gold certification, the 750W of power is enough for all Intel 12th Gen Core CPUs plus a reasonable graphics card.
Finally, to cool the CPU, MSI’s AIO MAG CoreLiquid 240R V2 White and its 274 x 120 x 27mm radiator should handle heat quite well using two ARGB 120mm fans rotating from 500 to 5000RPM.
Interested in these MSI products? Then expect around £105 for the MPG Gungnir 110R White, £360 for the MPG Z690 Force WiFi, £170 towards MAG B660M Mortar WiFi, and £90 for the MAG CoreLiquid 240R V2 White.
