ASUS was showing off a few new cases at CES 2023, and we are here to tell you all about them, as well as a new AIO based on Asetek’s 8th generation pump.
ROG Hyperion Case
Built with a sturdy metal exoskeleton, the ROG Hyperion is a massive new case that is ready to handle all of the latest gaming hardware you can stuff into 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 panel allow air to come in from the outside with ease.
With room for E-ATX motherboards, and the latest GPUs, including the new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090, you can be sure that this case is designed with pure enthusiasts in mind. In an effort to help keep those large video cards in place, a dedicated support bracket is present and ready to make sure your card is free from sagging.
Not only does the ROG Hyperion look good, but it has lots of great functionality as well. Six front-mounted USB ports offer a ton of options for super-fast 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 down by the power supply shroud offers a bit of storage for items like extra screws, USB dongles, or even a small screwdriver.
All of this adds up to a pretty amazing case with a ton of potential. We expect to see the ROG Hyperion shipping soon, with an MSRP of $500.
TUF Gaming GT502
Another case ASUS was showing off at CES 2023 was part of their TUG Gaming line. The TUF Gaming GT502 features a dual chamber design that can separate the cooling components for your CPU and GPU in order to maximize cooling performance. With room for up to 13 fans, and multiple mounting locations for radiators, including a 360mm location on the back panel, the TUF Gaming GT502 will be a solid option for builders that might prefer one method over the other.
The tool-free side panels make accessing your internal components very easy, and a simple press of a button on the back of the case will allow the panels to be removed with ease.
Lending to what ASUS calls a “panoramic view” are both front and side tempered glass panels. These tinted glass panels give you a nearly unobstructed look at the components you choose to put inside the case.
Adding to the functionality of the case are a front-mounted USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port that can support data transfers up to 10Gbps. Additionally, two straps at the top of the case are fully functional as carrying straps, which makes moving this large case around that much easier.
Offered in both black and white versions, the TUF Gaming GT502 will be shipping this week. Pricing is set at $160 for the black version, and $170 for the white.
TUF Gaming AIO
While we don’t have much information on it, ASUS was showing off an early version of a TUF Gaming AIO in the TUF Gaming GT502. This AIO really fits the aesthetic of the rest of the TUF Gaming components, and it lends itself well 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 had on display at CES 2023. Similar to the RTX 3070 and 3080 Noctua cards, this 4080 has been given the full Nocuta treatment. With a brown shroud and two tan and brown Noctua fans providing most of the visual look of this card, a custom vapor chamber and cooling fin array goes to bat from a cooling perspective.
The exact fans being used are the Noctua NF-A12x25, and they are used to push air across a custom, massive heatsink that was designed in a partnership between NVIDIA and Noctua engineers. With refined fin density and adjusted heat pipes, acoustics have been kept to a minimum while still providing plenty of cooling headroom.
