Sneak Peak at ASUS' ROG Strix Concept Case

Not everything at Computex is a final product, which means that there are more than a few "prototypes" and "concept" products at the event, one of which is the ROG Strix PC chassis, a PC case design that came about thanks to a collaboration between both ASUS and In Win.

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.

Aye, gotta see what the screen to bezel ratio and camera's are like. I would like to see a 256GB storage option though. I can't imagine what the price jump between 128GB and 512GB is going to be.

Jfc the thickness of the Ryujin block though! But I can't say I'm surprised with it housing a fan for the VRMsQuote

Interesting stuff. To answer Tom's questions:

Phone... I really like the looks. I don't care much about addons, and connectivity. It is a phone. What is the point of caring a suitcase of addons? At home you have PC. Why do you need docking station? You won't carry it around. Joypad thingy, and that dual screen is good if you are traveling.

For AiO i really like the "classical" shape. Fan to cool VRM... pointless. And the looks... You know what ASUS... too much exists. Don't overdo it.

PSU is amazing. I would really like that this type of fancy PSUs at least make PSU covers removable.

Case i don't like at all. I don't like writing all over it. And here also ASUS you are overdoing it. It is a gaming rig. It will get really hot. Don't put a slab of glass in the front. Design vents that work.

Have a nice time Tom. Quote

Gotta admit, I initially didn't like the looks of the Ryuo, but now I think it's glorious! You also have to appreciate the resolution of the mini display. I thought it'd be more of a pixel mush

Also kinda liking the phone. My contract is running out early next year, so I might consider that if the pricing is somewhere near the affordable mark. Let's just hope they get their energy management right or I can already see problems arising concerning broken batteries, that broke because the user attached and detached the gamepad/powerbank too often...

I don't really care much about the PSUs as they're a big overkill for me. Hopefully ASUS is bringin some 500W soon with all that fancy stuff.Quote
