When choosing a new PC chassis, most users generally tend to err towards a solid combination of style and functionality. In other words, how good it looks and how easy it is to work with. Among the various designs on offer, the ASUS ROG Strix Helios is undoubtedly a more than solid option and following a report via TechPowerUp, it has been confirmed that a ‘White Edition’ version of this chassis is shortly due to hit retail shelves!
Although being called the ‘White Edition’ the pictures seem to indicate more of a white/silver styling with that very distinctive black panel (with RGB embellishments) to the front. The design also includes, as has been seen before from ASUS, straps which can be attached to the top of the case in an attempt to make portability a more notable factor of its overall design! In other words, ideal for gamers on the go!
Despite the new aesthetic style, the chassis design is essentially exactly the same as the original version. As such, although the specific ‘White Edition’ website has not yet launched, for details and specifications, the original variant website should point you (mostly) in the right direction. You can check that out via the link here!
At the time of writing, ASUS has neither confirmed an exact release date nor how much this ‘White Edition’ variant will cost. It does, however, seem more than likely that this will hit retail shelves in the coming weeks and, in terms of price, we can likely expect something similar to the original design (circa £270).
