    ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced GT51CA, a powerful gaming desktop powered by a 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, with Turbo Gear for one-click full-core CPU overclocking to 4.6 GHz without having to reboot. In addition, ROG GT51CA supports up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X graphics with 2-Way SLI for smooth, stutter-free 4K UHD gaming at over 60 frames per second. It also features up to two 512 GB NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs for data access speeds of up to 3.2 Gbps - up to six times (6X) faster than SATA SSDs. ROG GT51CA's DDR4 2133 MHz memory has been even overclocked to 2800 MHz for faster boot-up and game load times.

    Effective cooling for stable marathon gaming sessions
    ROG GT51CA delivers efficient heat management for stable high-performance gaming sessions. It boasts a multi-zone thermal solution that lowers the system's internal temperatures by up to 31%, even during heavy-load marathon gaming sessions.

    It features the liquid-cooled Hydro Overclocking System for the CPU and dedicated air channels to draw cool air into the chassis for the graphics card. In addition, its power supply unit - situated in the bottom corner of the chassis - also has its own isolated airflow design for cooling.

    Aggressive, award-winning design
    ROG GT51CA has a bold aerodynamic-inspired design with aggressive, sharp-angled polygonal edges, smooth surfaces, and a fully-functional turbine-like air intake on its front panel. The latter features a pulse-width modulation (PWM) fan that draws air into the cooling system. Inside, a carefully thought-out design ensures perfectly neat cable routing.

    ROG GT51CA is designed to impress, with dynamic 8-million-color LED effects in 4 zones across its chassis, and a preset OC lighting mode that is activated whenever the system is overclocked. ROG GT51CA's bold design helped it win a 2016 iF Design Award and a 2016 CES Innovation Award.

    Additional gaming enhancements
    ROG GT51CA boasts an ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier on its front audio jack to give users incredible audiophile-grade sound. It provides high dynamic range (DNR) and low noise levels for rich audio with less distortion.

    The wearable ROG BAND gives users access to Shadow Drive - a hidden hard drive space for managing personal and confidential data safely. ROG BAND can also be used to activate overclocking mode.

    The ASUS-exclusive AEGIS II application lets gamers monitor system performance, record and edit gameplay with Gamecaster, and easily share their gaming experiences on social media.

    And this is why Apple-users can't take PC-gamers serious.

    Buy two of those cases and wrap them to your feet - a solid basis for any Tauren-Cosplay (WoW).

    It looks like it is forcing itself to be cool, with that piece of plastic lifting and tilting it at the bottom, only it is just a plain old square metal chassis with a piece of plastic lifting and tilting it at the bottom. Couple that with a wannabee Ultron looking plastic face, and we have a rice chassis that would make every ricer's dream come true.
