ASUS RoG STRIX Helios – “Made for Showcase Builds”
There are plenty of high-end cases to pick from these days, but ASUS want to throw a new option into the ring with the STRIX Helios. This is a big, bold, and a rather expensive chassis that’s sure to appeal to the enthusiast crowd. Of course, for those rocking an ASUS motherboard, graphics card, CPU cooler, power supply and other hardware, it’s obviously going to have a strong appeal. However, is it any good and will the ASUS fans (and others) love what it has to offer? Let’s find out!
At this price, you would expect a lot of cool features, and you would be right! It comes with three sides of tempered glass, custom etched with ASUS graphics. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also lit up with Aura Sync RGB lighting, surrounded by gorgeous black brushed aluminium. It’ll handle big hardware too, with room for an EATX motherboard, 420mm front panel radiator, huge graphics cards and much more. So, it’s ticking all the right boxes so far. Now, let’s dive in for a closer look at what it has to offer.
