ASUS has revealed their first TUF series PC case, the TUF Gaming GT501, a finalised version of the enclosure they announced at Computex 2018, offering the same rugged, militaristic design with the same water cooling potential. 

When compared to the Computex prototype, ASUS has added a vertical GPU mount to the chassis and has made a few aesthetic tweaks, though the ATX case still offers the same basic appearance as the original, offering users a textured metal front panel, a large tempered glass side-panel and an armour plate look that is undeniably TUF. 

By default, this case supports four 3.5/2.5-inch drives as well as three additional 2.5-inch drives, ATX motherboards (with larger board overhanging the case’s grommeted sections) and two 280mm or 320mm water cooling radiators (Top and Front). This case will ship with three front-mounted 120mm AURA RGB fans, as well as a single 140mm PWM fan that acts as an exhaust. 

On the front panel, this case supports two USB 3.0 ports and sports both headphone and microphone jacks. The top of this enclosure supports three 120mm fans or two 140mm fans, a configuration that can be matched at the front of the chassis. GPU-wise this case supports PCIe add-in-card lengths of up to 420mm, CPU coolers that are up to 180mm tall and ATX PSUs that are up to 240mm long. 

One of this case’s unique features is its large cotton fibre handles, which are said to be able to handle system weights of up to 30kg without issue. The GT501 also sports an integrated 4-way fan controller, which is controllable via USB 2.0 motherboard headers and RGB lighting. This can be controlled using ASUS’ Fan Xpert 4 and AURA Sync software respectively.

At Computex, ASUS stated that they were considering a $149 price point, though this may have changed since the prototype’s unveiling. At this time we do not know this case’s final pricing or when we will see it hit store shelves.
