The MASSIVE ASUS ROG Gaming Case and more at CES 2023

ASUS showed off a few new cases at CES 2023, and we’re here to tell you all about them, as well as a new AIO based on Asetek’s 8th Gen pump.

ROG Hyperion housing

Built with a tough metal exoskeleton, ROG Hyperion is a massive new chassis that’s ready to take on all the latest gaming hardware you can throw at it. ASUS has really focused on good airflow with the Hyperion, as it supports up to two 420mm radiators on the front and top of the case, while large cutouts in the front bezel let air in from the outside easily.

With room for E-ATX motherboards and the latest GPUs, including the new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090, you can rest assured that this case was designed with pure enthusiasts in mind. In an effort to keep those big video cards in place, there’s a special support bracket that keeps your card from bending.

The ROG Hyperion not only looks good, but also has a lot of great functionality. Six front-mounted USB ports provide numerous options for high-speed external storage devices. An internal lighting panel that sits next to the motherboard can actually be removed from the case to make room for radiators, internal storage drives, or fans. A small drawer near the power supply offers some storage space for things like extra screws, USB dongles or even a small screwdriver.

All this adds up to a pretty amazing case with a ton of potential. We expect the ROG Hyperion to ship soon, with an MSRP of $500.

TUF Gaming GT502

Another case ASUS showed off at CES 2023 was part of their TUG Gaming line. TUF Gaming GT502 features a dual-chamber design that can separate the cooling components for your CPU and GPU to maximize cooling performance. With room for up to 13 fans and multiple radiator mounting locations, including a 360mm location on the rear panel, the TUF Gaming GT502 will be a solid option for builders who may prefer one method over another.

The tool-less side panels make accessing your internal components very easy, and with a simple push of a button on the back of the case, the panels can be easily removed.

Lending what ASUS calls a “panoramic view” are tempered glass panels on the front and side. These tinted glass panels give you an almost unobstructed view of the components you place inside the case.

Adding to the case’s functionality is a front-mounted USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port that can support data transfers of up to 10 Gbps. In addition, two straps on the top of the case are fully functional as carrying straps, making moving this large case much easier.

The TUF Gaming GT502, which is offered in both black and white versions, will ship this week. The price is set at $160 for the black version and $170 for the white one.

TUF Gaming AIO

While we don’t have much information about it, ASUS showed off an early version of a TUF Gaming AIO in the TUF Gaming GT502. This AIO really matches the aesthetic of the rest of the TUF Gaming components and lends itself perfectly to helping you put together a complete TUF Gaming setup.

GeForce RTX 4080 Noctua Edition

We also got a chance to take a quick look at the 4080 Noctua edition that ASUS showcased at CES 2023. Like the RTX 3070 and 3080 Noctua cards, this 4080 has been given the full Nocuta treatment. With a brown shroud and two brown and brown Noctua fans providing most of this card’s visual appeal, a custom vapor chamber and cooling fin array gets to work from a cooling perspective.

The exact fans used are the Noctua NF-A12x25, and they are used to push air through a custom massive heatsink designed in a collaboration between NVIDIA and Noctua engineers. With a refined fin density and custom heat pipes, acoustics are kept to a minimum while still providing ample cooling space.
