ASUS’ ROG Strix series of PSUs are due to release soon

Power supplies sit at the heart of any PC. They are what supply systems with their electrical lifeblood, making your choice in power supply one of the most important decisions any PC builder has to make. 

ASUS’ ROG sub-brand is relatively new to the power supply market, having created their high-end Thor series in 2018. Now, ASUS plans to enter the lower-end of the PSU market, revealing to the world their upcoming ROG Strix series of Gold rated power supplies. The ROG Strix 750W/650W Gold are both due to hit retail shelves within the next few weeks, marking availability in late August/Early September. 

The ROG Strix series is designed to be more affordable than the ROG Thor, but no less reliable. ASUS’ ROG Strix series of power supplies will come in 650W and 750W flavours and ship with a 10-year warranty, ensuring their users that these units a built to last. How many PC components do you keep for over a decade? My guess is not that many. Offering a 10-year warranty is a big deal, and in this regard, ASUS is matching the longest warranties that the consumer PSU industry offers. 

Like the ROG Thor, ASUS’ Strix series of power supplies will make use of ASUS’ custom PSU heatsinks, which are designed to look good and provide cooling that’s superior to many competing solutions. With the ROG Strix series, ASUS also plans to offer their users an optional 0dB fan mode, making their power supplies silent under low loads. In their marketing, ASUS says that these PSUs offer “Frozen Silence”, stating that their units will be both cool and quiet.

With the ROG Strix series of power supplies, ASUS plans to offer their users an unparalleled level of customisability, offering removable logo magnets to offer a range of coloured accent options. Want to go for a dark, stealthy look, or a more traditional ROG red colour scheme? 


As an 80 Gold rated power supply, ASUS’ Strix series of power supplies deliver 90% efficiency levels at 50% load and 87% efficiency levels at 20% and 100% loads.
