Intel Kaby Lake 7000 series CPUs Benchmarked

Everyone Gamers waiting for the next gen Kaby Lake series CPUs might be a little disappointed today as reviews and benchmarks surface from major news outlets.

Techpowerup has done a very thorough test of the flagship 7700K against the current gen Skylake 6700K with a large number of popular games and the results are fairly unanimous.  The good news is, if you have a Skylake CPU (or even a Ivy Bridge / Haswell CPU) there’s no reason to upgrade. The bad news, if you’ve been dying to upgrade  your PC and just holding out for the next big generational performance boost, this isn’t it.

Full credit to techpowerup for the benchmarks below, to read their full article visit techpowerup.com/reviews/

So if it’s time to upgrade your gaming PC maybe you should jump on the current gen before it’s all gone and dodge the new generation premium pricing of Kaby Lake motherboards and CPUs? Visit Evatech.com.au today to get started. Don’t worry, if your still keen for Kaby Lake systems they are on the way too, keep an eye on our website for updates in the coming days.

Ryu Custom Gaming PC in Deepcool Steam Castle Black

One of our recent customers requested that we take a picture of the hardware for his build before we opened any of the retail packaging, similar to what people do on popular website reddit when posting their own PC build logs.

We’re quite a transparent business and team, so had no problem catering to a simple request such as this.

Here are the pictures we sent through to the customer.

And a little teaser while he waited for the PC to ship out to him…

MSI’s High-Bandwidth SLI Bridge

While most of our customers don’t get SLI systems, there are of course some that do, and for most of these customers, the regular SLI bridge that comes with the motherboard is sufficient.

Then there are some customers who demand nothing but the best from their hardware, and we can’t blame them. This particular customer was spending over $6,000 on their system, before the 4K monitor they also ordered – so when he asked if we could get our hands on a high-bandwidth bridge instead, we had no problem fulfilling the request.

Here’s the pictures!

And here’s a regular SLI bridge, for comparison.

128GB of DDR4, Liquid Cooled i7 6900K & SLI MSI Gaming X GTX1070’s

We can only speculate as to what this absolute beast of a system is going to be used for, but we sure hope it’s for something a little more ambitious than Dota 2 and some school homework!

Sparing (almost) no expense, this build is a behemoth! The 128GB of DDR4 memory took almost a full 24 hours to burn in test alone and housed in a Corsair Graphite 780T chassis it’s physically massive as well.

Red sleeved cabling from the 1000w 80+ Gold rated PSU, red accented Gaming X GPUs from MSI, red LED lit NZXT Kraken liquid CPU cooler and black and red MSI Gaming Pro motherboard come together perfectly in the matte black Corsair 780T chassis with impressive results. Take a look for yourself.

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.

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.

Evatech Moving to a 4x Larger Space in Oakleigh South

When & Why?

With our rapidly expanding customer base it’s come time to expand to make sure we can we can keep up with demand and not compromise our level of quality and customer service! Starting next week we’ll have all hands on deck to make sure the move is as smooth as possible and if all goes to plan, be up and running at our new location by Thursday with little to no disruption to customers, local or online.

If you’re a local, don’t worry, we’re not moving far.

Our new address is only 5 minutes away from our previous store at 1/382 Huntingdale Road in Oakleigh South.Evatech's New Melbourne Address

 

If you’re an online customer, don’t worry, this doesn’t change anything.

We will still have our same great customer service, product range, quality control and delivery times. In fact our catalog will probably grow, our stock on hand will be even better and our delivery times ever faster!

Thinking about placing an order? Go for it. There will be no delays.

We’ve got it all taken care of,  months careful planning has gone in to devising a move that causes the absolute minimum impact to customers. Our store may be closed for a day as we make the final transition but online orders are processed at our distribution facility and will be un-effected.

Closures during the moving period.

We run a tight ship, and although it’s a huge move, the plan is to only be closed for a single business day. At this point in the time the scheduled closer date is Wednesday the 11th of OCT but if plans change we’ll let everyone know with a banner on our website ASAP.
