ASUS has announced the Replublic of Gamers Tytan G70 gaming desktop. The updated desktop uses the latest chips from Intel and NVIDIA along with a large transforming case. The system is cooled by an integrated water loop and 10 case fans.

The ROG Tytan G70 is bult using a large dark gray case that has sharp angles and extending side and top panels that automatically extend outwards to expose the six front intake fans and two rear exhaust fans. The chassis measures 530mm x 300 x 630mm and the system with hardware installed weighs about 53 pounds (24kg). The front of the case has sliding panels that allow users to access three 5.25" drive bays. The top panel has a red ROG logo and there are also LEDs below that change from blue to read when the Turbo Gear overclocking is enabled. Finally, the top panel houses a Qi wireless charger which can recharge Qi-supporting smartphones when placed on top of the case.

Internal hardware options are extensive, and users can configure the system with some beefy specifications. At the top end, users can get a watercooled Intel Core i7-4770K processor, 32GB of DDR3 RAM, a NVIDIA GTX 780 graphics card, five 3TB 3.5" mechanical hard drives, a 256GB SSD, an ASUS Xonar Phobeus sound card, and 700W power supply. The system supportsSonicMaster and MaxxAudio (from Waves) audio technologies.

The Tytan G70 supports software that automatically overclocks the Core i7-4770K to either 3.9GHz or 4.1GHz for all four cores without needing to reboot the system. When this "Turbo Gear" overclocking is activated, the case panels extend to reveal the various case fans to improve cooling performance.

Oddly enough there is no NVIDIA GTX Titan option for the ROG Tytan though one could add one in after the fact. Pricing has not yet been announced, but the pre-built ROG system should be available soon. Additional information can be found on the ASUS ROG blog.

"extending side and top panels that automatically extend outwards to expose the six front intake fans and two rear exhaust fans"

Now that's how you do a crazy gaming case.
I would love to see that in action!

Crazy you got that part right. I find it crazy ugly, i never understood why you cant make a good looking minimalistic super gaming rig. It always has to be this elaborate rube goldberg-frankeinstein stuff.

But thats just my opinion. One of of millions.

Wow. 6 intake fans, how the hell does that work?
(side by side?)
I've heard of positive case pressure, but that takes the piss.
O gawd its like a basking shark!

I bought one of these & it was great but one day while playing GRID 2 it opened up & started revving like crazy, lights started flashing & then it just vanished off my desktop.
That was three weeks ago now & every night at exactly 6:45 Pm it reappears on my desktop for 5 seconds & then disappears again.
Contacted Asus & they said some of them had this problem but it wasn't covered under warranty
