ASUS intros ROG Strix Helios, its first ever gaming PC case. Designed from the ground up to accommodate ROG components, it is sure to make the shortlist for any ROG enthusiast.
ASUS announced ROG Strix Helios, the first gaming PC case under the Republic of Gamers (ROG) label. Strix Helios is a premium mid-tower chassis with premium aesthetics, a comprehensive cable-management system, and offers ample room for water-cooling setups. This is a wise move for the Taiwanese company, who is also a maker of motherboards, graphics cards, CPU coolers, and power supply units to penetrate this particular product segment.
ROG Strix Helios, made for showcase buildsStrix Helios is designed for those who want to create a gaming rig that will stand out in any crowd. It boasts three 4mm-thick, smoked, tempered-glass panels fitted in a refined brushed-aluminum frame, plus a stunning display of Aura RGB lighting integrated into the front panel. The LEDs are individually addressable, and can be customized with a palette of millions of colors and a range of preset effects – all easily synced with the vast Aura Sync hardware ecosystem to augment the build.
Strix Helios offers the option for dual vertical GPU mounting in addition to the standard orientation for gamers who want additional flair. For gamers eager to haul and show off their prized build at LAN or gaming events, the case comes with stylish fabric handles that are rigorously tested to support up to 50kg for comfortable transportation.
Effortless cable management and maintenance
Strix Helios has been thoughtfully designed with flexible covers and a comprehensive cable-management system to keep the interior tidy, clean, and sharp. An adjustable multi-function cover with GPU braces cleverly hides cabling, provides sturdy support to graphics cards, and allows for an SSD or ROG Aura Terminal to be mounted for display. There’s also a two-piece PSU shroud with a front cut-out to enable compatibility with ROG Thor or other OLED-integrated power supplies. In the back, a translucent cable cover conceals unsightly wiring while allowing illuminations from RGB devices to shine through.
Building with and maintaining a Strix Helios is also made simple. Release buttons at the rear of the chassis allows builders to swing down the side panels for instant, tool-less access to the interior. The panels are bottom-hinged, and will remain supported at an angle until they’re ready to be completely detached. The case also comes with fan and radiator mounts, and removable filters on the top, front, and underside for all-round dust protection.
Superior performance and connectivity
Built to perform and primed for expansion, Strix Helios can accommodate up to an EATX motherboard and offers ample space for serious water-cooling setups. With support for up to 420mm front and 360mm top radiators, room is also reserved for installing a water-cooling pump and reservoir.
The case also features an advanced I/O panel loaded with connectivity and fast controls, including a reversible USB 3.1 Type-C port and dedicated controls for fan speed and RGB lighting.
