ASUS Launches their ROG Strix Helios Chassis for Showcase Builds

ASUS has been expanding onto every facet of the PC market, having recently entered the world of All-in-One liquid cooling, power supplies and RGB illumination. Today, it is almost possible to create a full ASUS/ROG PC, allowing the Republic of Gamers hardened loyalists to showcase their fandom in a way that was impossible before. 

The case market is the final frontier of the PC market that ASUS' ROG brand has yet to occupy, and that is where the ROG Strix Helios steps in, an EATX compatible chassis which offers a robust design, support for large water cooling radiators and more than enough space to accommodate any ROG series component.  

The ROG Strix Helios is designed for showpiece systems, offering users integrated RGB lighting, twin tempered glass side panels and removable carry handles which enable users of the case to easily transport their systems to LAN parties or gaming events without much hassle. All LEDs within the Strix Helios are addressable, allowing users of the Helios to adjust their case lighting setup to meet their exacting specifications. 

The Strix Helios is designed with ASUS' other components in mind, featuring support for a top-mounted 360mm radiator to support Ryoujin series liquid coolers and a power supply cut-out to expose the OLED screen that is included in ROG Thor power supplies. Water cooling wise the Helios supports a front mounted 420mm radiator and up to a 360mm on the roof of the enclosure. 

As we mentioned before, the Strix Helios is designed to accommodate up to EATX systems with custom water cooling loops and heavy-duty components; all while offering the ability to transport these heavy systems to events. To help achieve this goal, ASUS has integrated a graphics card brace into their case, which enabled up to two graphics cards to be supported, preventing GPU sag. 

ASUS has also created their Helios case with an advanced front panel which features RGB controls, USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity and a fan controller. This comes in addition to four USB 3.0 Type-A connections, power/reset switches and headset/microphone audio jacks. 


In the UK, ASUS plans to release their ROG Strix Helios chassis for £249.99, with availability coming later this month at Scan, Overclockers UK and other retailers.

I’m hoping there will be a significant gap between that front panel and the fans and radiator, I know it’s the in thing to have glass everywhere on computer cases but there are ways of doing it that don’t bugger up airflow - look at the Lian Li dynamic case as an example of a great combination of form and function.Quote

I'm finding myself unable to tell much difference between the overpriced garbage that Corsair sells, and the overpriced garbage that Asus sells. I will always buy Asus motherboards, but they can keep the rest of it.Quote
