Sneak Peak at ASUS' ROG Strix Concept Case
From the outside of the case, we can see that this concept case is designed for up to EATX motherboard designs, with enough space inside for several large water cooling radiators (2x 360mm) and a lot of heavy-duty hardware. We can also see what appears to be an RGB illuminated ROG logo and ROG Strix lettering on the front and inside of the enclosure respectively.
While the case is designed to accommodate heavy hardware and water cooled components, ASUS has built their ROG Strix enclosure with portability in mind, offering users woven carry handles at the top of the case. Each RGB LED in the system is addressable, allowing users to create a fully custom lighting setup that can match your other components from your motherboard to your GPU to external accessories like an Aura compatible gaming mouse or keyboard.
ASUS has also designed this case with a PSU shroud, though it does feature a cutout that can showcase the RGB lighting and OLED display on their latest Thor Platinum series units, allowing ROG fans to showcase their brand loyalty. The enclosure also comes with a vertical GPU mount, which allows PC builders to showcase their graphics card with its cooler being fully visible.
On the case's I/O ASUS are offering support for Quick Charge 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 2, allowing for fast device charging and rapid data transfer speeds. ASUS has not revealed the final pricing of this chassis, though we have heard that the case will release in the second half of this year, provided ASUS are able to finalise their design without the need for any significant changes.
