ASUS Announces ROG Strix Helios Mid-Tower Gaming Case
Posted by Martin Patino April 29, 2019

ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) has officially announced its first ever gaming PC case, the ROG Strix Helios. The new mid-tower chassis comes with premium materials and features that will allow gaming enthusiasts to easily configure their rig to their liking.

The ROG Strix Helios is built with a brushed-aluminum frame that’s coupled with three 4mm smoked tempered glass panels. The panels can be easily released using the buttons at the rear of the case and are bottom-hinged, allowing them to swing down and lock at an angle until completely removed. The front of the case also comes with integrated Aura RGB lighting, with individually addressable LEDs.

Measuring 250 x 565 x 591mm and weighing 18kg on its own, the ROG Strix Helios is a pretty large and robust case that supports not only up to an EATX motherboard but also a wide array of water-cooling setups, with room for up to a 420mm front and 360mm top radiators as well as a water-cooling pump and reservoir. The case also comes equipped with removable dust filters on the top, front, and underside.

The top of the case is equipped with robust nylon case handles that are stated to support up to 50kg to make transporting the case easier. There’s also an extensive top I/O panel equipped with four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, headphone and mic jacks, power and reset buttons, as well as controls for the case LEDs and fans.

On the inside, the ROG Strix Helios comes with an adjustable multifunction cover equipped with GPU braces that not only provide support for graphics cards but also help hide cabling. An SSD or ROG Aura Terminal can also be mounted on the cover for display. There’s also a two-piece PSU shroud that comes with a cutout for OLED-equipped PSUs as well as a translucent rear cover to help conceal cable management while letting RGB lighting shine through.

The case also comes with removable fan/radiator brackets for easy installation as well as bundled brackets that will allow users to mount their video cards vertically (although users will still need to purchase riser cables).

The ASUS ROG Strix Helios gaming PC case is already available for an SRP of PHP 16,800.
