Having gathered all your BTF hardware together, you need a case. The ASUS TUF GT302 is specifically designed to run with this backwards orientation.

Certainly there is plenty of ventilation built in. Everywhere you look on the GT302 there are holes. That gap in front of the PSU cover looks like a perfect place to install some LEDs. We love the subtle TUF branding.

It’s supplied with four 120mm RGB fans. You don’t get a controller, but you do get RGB splitters so you can plug it into your ecosystem.

I often reference the giant monolith from 2001 A Space Odyssey. What’s the white equivalent? It’s a beast, either way.

The holes are all there for the motherboard you saw before. The placement of them is broad enough to suit a selection of BTF motherboard designs, although it’s perfect for our Z790 TUF. As you’d expect being under the same roof. We have to say if we were installing a regular motherboard it would need MUCH better covers than it has. It’s clearly a BTF case that happens to support regular orientation, rather than one designed for both.

The PSU might not have a rubber grommet, but we’d be nit-picking to complain about that. Especially as we’ve already seen how attracting the Strix PSU is. With three fans you get a lot of airflow to keep everything cool. The bottom front fan pushing air through the PSU shroud is a nice touch too and will help your cooling.

Lastly, the front panel has all the connectivity you would expect from a modern case design. The rear shot shows how much cable the GT302 has by default, before you’ve built a rig. Those with poor cable routing skills need not apply.
