MANILA, Philippines, April 12, 2019 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced ROG Strix Helios, the first gaming PC case from ROG. Strix Helios is a premium mid-tower chassis with superior aesthetics, a comprehensive cable-management system and offers ample room for water-cooling setups. Designed from the ground up to accommodate ROG components, Strix Helios is sure to make the short list for any ROG enthusiast. The new gaming case can be pre-ordered immediately in selected regions, and will be available worldwide shortly.
The case to “show your case” in this case – a case to case basis; just in case
The Strix Helios is designed for those who want to create a gaming rig that will stand out in any crowd. 4mm smoked tempered glass on the front and side panels together with the brushed aluminum frame designed for display and maximum exposure of the insides of the case – a truly show eccentric model when you realize that smoked glass work well with RGB lighting which are also part of this case through the front panel; and of course it’s fully addressable via the ASUS Aura Sync.
Strix Helios as a behemoth of a case also supports dual vertical GPU mounting – yes, you read that right; DUAL. VERTICAL. GPU. which has the case fulfilling its “show-case” status. ASUS also didn’t skip out on the more ergonomic features of this case. As a “show-case” this meant your rig will be doing some travelling; a lot of travelling – with this in mind, ASUS added comfortable, breathable, and stylish fabric handles that went through testing to support up to 50kg of pure flex and hardware.
Superb and smooth internals management
Strix Helios has been thoughtfully designed with flexible covers and a comprehensive cable-management system to keep the interior tidy, clean and sharp. Everything in the case is with a function while still being focused in briging the best display options for your case – An adjustable multifunction 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.
Support for even the largest options in PC Building
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. This is important for a case that aims to be displayed – with support for even the largest of motherboards this also meant having the chassis be extended for support to the largest radiators.
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. Accessibility seems to be one of the strengths of this case featuring 3.1 Type-C and even the controls for the fans and RGB
ASUS ROG Strix Helios will be available starting April 12, 2019 from partner retailers and will be priced at 16,800 PHP.
