Asus ROG Strix Helios Launched – Asus’s First Premium ATX Gaming Case Weighs 18kg

Asus has been a leader in the PC gaming market for more than a while. Today, the folks over at Asus have announced their first premium PC gaming chassis aimed at enthusiastic gamers featuring every single feature you could think of.

The new Asus ROG Strix Helios features three 4mm glass side panels, an incredible shape with sharp corners, RGB lighting, excellent cable management, fabric carrying handles and more. Furthermore, the Asus ROG Strix Helios features incredible RGB integration thanks to its in-house Aura Sync technology, fan dust meshes all around the case, as well as a GPU brace to keep your sagging GPU stable.

Regarding your cooling options, the Strix Helios comes with support for a 140mm triple-fan rad on top and front of the case. Continuing down its feature set, the case supports Mini-ITX, ATX, and ETX motherboards alike and comes with a PSU shroud. Coming over to connectivity and front panel of the case, the case features a 2nd-gen USB Type-C port, four USB 3.1 ports, a 3.5mm headphone, and mic jack, lighting controls, fan controls, and a large power button.

The case also comes with tabs to release the glass panels on either side as well as radiator mounts to keep everything smooth and easy.

Over at the back of the case, you have 33mm worth of width to house your cables in. And if you happen to have RGB-enabled SSDs, like the ones we’ve seen from Team Group, you could take that to the next level too with the help of Asus’s Aurasync RGB lighting, illuminating the back side of the case as well.
