ASUS is also announcing an ROG-branded case. If you have seen their desktops, then you have a good idea what you’re getting into, although the design is new -- they didn’t recycle an ROG Gaming Desktop case and call it a day.
In terms of features, this case is designed with LAN parties in mind. First, it has woven handles to carry it around, which they say is to carry to LAN parties, so that’s a bit of a giveaway. More subtly, though, they also include a vertical GPU bracket, which is to make them more visible. ASUS says Strix graphics cards specifically – I’m not sure whether this is a plug for their GPUs or whether the vertical bracket is designed for the Strix in some way (size / shape / etc.). Keep that in mind if your build mixes vendors.
Beyond the LAN Party uses, the case has some interesting features. It can mount a triple-wide (360mm) radiator. It has a Quick Charge 3.0 port. It has a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C power, which, hey, Type-C. It also has a tool-free SSD caddy and magnetic dust filters.
It will be available in the second half of this year. Pricing has not been announced.
