ASUS teases the ROG Strix Helios gaming chassis at the recently concluded CES 2019 convention at Las Vegas, Nevada. The ROG Strix Helios is a mid-tower ATX gaming chassis complete with all the necessary features any Republic of Gamers enthusiast would want in a desktop chassis such as premium brushed aluminium finish, tempered glass panels, addressable RGB lighting, and more. The ROG Strix Helios can even have a customisable OLED display which ASUS has been lavishly adding to its latest ROG products from the ROG motherboards to the ROG RYUO coolers and ROG Thor power supplies.
The ROG Strix Helios gaming chassis is a mid-tower chassis that measures 249x564x592mm (WxHxD) but supports up to an extended-ATX motherboard form factor. It can house up to three 140mm/120mm cooling fans in front as intake and up to two 120mm/140mm fans on top for exhaust. The ROG Strix Helios also offer both the standard horizontal graphics card installation and a vertical graphics card installation with the help of the PCIe riser cable that will have to be acquired separately. The ROG Strix Helios also packs a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port and four USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A ports for high-speed data transfer and connection. Lastly, the chassis comes with customisable RGB lighting powered by the ASUS Aura Sync.
