This build came together really well – Corsair’s white Carbide Air 240 case with MSI’s Mortar Arctic motherboard which is also white, teamed with Asus’ GTX 1070 Dual, white again, and ID Cooling’s liquid cooling unit which has a very subtle white LED logo. All that with the red accents from the RAM and sleeved power supply cables really comes out looking great.
This particular build is on it’s way to it’s new owner Sydney right now and we hope they love it as much as we do.
The Carbide Air 240 from Corsair can be vertically mounted as shown in the photos or rotated 90 degrees horizontally with the square Corsair logo at the front also rotatable to match (hence the green tape holding it in place for shipping).

It’s been 2 years since the Need for Speed reboot (2015, or 2016 for us [un]lucky PC gamers) hit the ground and for the most part was received pretty well, even despite EA pushing the release back on PC to make sure it was as polished as we deserved. Personally I found that it lived up to most of the hype and was a worthy NFS title after a string of questionable releases with perhaps a few exceptions. But it’s now 2017, marking another 2 year gap between titles, and while there had been a long radio silence on the upcoming game, EA broke that silence earlier this week officially confirming a 2017 release date for the next NFS title.
Some of the key things mentioned in their post:
- The word “drift” was subtly thrown in
- That by the end of 2017 you will be playing a new Need for Speed game
- Customisation is here to stay, for the upcoming release and beyond
- Cops and police chases
- Open world wasn’t explicitly confirmed, but hopefully was implied – it’s 2017, a title as big as NFS should definitely be open world from here on out
- Always-online gameplay is no longer necessary!
That’s about all they’ve given us for the time being. They’ve promised more details in the coming weeks and months before release – we guess that the next instalment of news will come June 2nd 2017 as suggested by the image.

We (Evatech) was proudly
one of the first Australian retailers to offer a fully featured website that put customers in control of their custom PC builds, while ensuring you don’t accidentally order a system that isn’t compatible. Over the years, we’ve heard from our customers that our website is the best experience they’ve found, and we thought we’d check out what the competition has to offer.
We were fairly surprised to see that nobody has caught up to us. Here at Evatech, since launching our custom PC builder, we’ve never stopped coming up with ways to make it better or easier to use. Yet our competition are still years behind, lacking even the most basic features.
- Instant on page incompatibility checking on all major component combinations (tens of millions of possible combinations) !
- On page PSU wattage requirement calculator, because higher wattage means nothing if your not using it!
- Performance indicators for all the latest and greatest PC games so you know what to expect before you spend a dime.
- Order tracking from the moment you checkout so you can check in on every state of the process from invoicing to building, testing, packing and dispatch.
- A very clear yet comprehensive guide to putting together a well rounded custom gaming PC for those not so familiar with PC hardware, available to browse as you build.
- The ability to save configurations indefinitely, re-edit them, share them with friends or family for advice and come back later when it’s most convenient for you.
- A physical location in Melbourne where local customers can drop in and get real advise from the team who are happy to walk you through every step of the process and take the order right there over the counter.
- Secure, well packaged and fully insured courier delivery. We’ve shipped tens of thousands of fragile high powered custom PCs nation wide and know how to do it right.

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…
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.
Ho-ho-ho! … What, too soon?

The lead-up to Christmas is undoubtedly one of the busiest times of year for us. Every year we’re glad to be able to say that every customer has had their PC order delivered before the big day, and we’re on track to keep that tradition this year again.
So why are we posting about this 120 days out from the day? 120 days is the maximum length of our lay-by period. Meaning, if you put in a PC order today and paid it off within 120 days* then you’ll have one less gift to worry about later on!
Check out our full terms of lay-by (includes instructions on how to lay-by)

If you have any questions about anything, be sure to let us know by contacting us. Our helpful sales/support staff are always happy to answer questions and get you pointed in the right direction.
A reminder that our lay-by system requires full payment to be made before order processing can begin. This means you must pay the order total before you can get any part of your order. We currently do not have a financing option available and would suggest for those interested to look into a personal loan or a credit card.
* Last payment should be made in slightly under 120 days from now. This will allow time for us to confirm payments and build, test, and ship (if not able to do pickup in store) the PC in time.
