B350 Tomahawk Arctic

The packaging for the Tomahawk Arctic reflects the design on the PCB. We're struggling to remember another motherboard box where the packaging so accurately informs you of what is inside. Usually it's a photograph of the board from a strange angle, or just the large collection of technology badges. Freed from its restraints you can see how the Tomahawk Arctic utilises a bluer white than a pure white, although the grey stripes across the board break up the whiteness. Whether you prefer that to the "side of a fridge" aesthetic we've seen on other white motherboards is a matter of personal preference, although we think there is slightly too much grey for a board labelled Arctic. 

If youre wondering what the MSI case is its actually one of ours we did for a project years ago, sadly the decals were custom made for us. If you like the idea then head to a custom sign shop with some MSI dragon images and a wad of cash, any decent place should be able to quote you happy. Should you want a smaller pure white motherboard then click on, because the mATX has you covered.

The heatsinks have ice blue flashes to help echo the light blue shade of white on the board, but you can remove the tops and eiyther paint those or even with a little work change the blue accent too. If its not quite right. MOD IT!

It is a very nice case if you decide to go with it. My brother and I built his rig into that case about 5 years ago and it has not once given us a problem, install was easy and TONS of room inside that case for parts. Also very good cable management holes and surprisingly a good amount of space on the backside to tuck cables and hide them away Quote
