ASUS Republic of Gamers Unleashes New Lineup of Gaming Components and Peripherals
ROG expands into new product categories with introduction of ROG Ryujin and Ryuo CPU liquid coolers, ROG Thor power supply and ROG Strix Gaming Chassis
Fremont, CA (June 4, 2018) — Since Republic of Gamers (ROG) inception 12 years ago, we’ve been on a mission to spread innovation to the different components comprising gaming and enthusiast PCs. Starting in 2006 with motherboards, we dared to defy conventional thinking in pursuit of our passion to produce the world’s best gaming hardware. That drive led us to expand into graphics cards and laptops, and then into monitors and peripherals. More recently, we’ve also worked to ensure that these different pieces fit together more meaningfully, allowing you to build a complete system that reflects ROG style with your own personal flavor. The new ROG Thor 1200W Platinum PSU, ROG Strix Gaming Chassis plus the ROG Ryujin and Ryuo all-in-one coolers exemplifies these continued efforts.
Republic of Gamers is featuring our full lineup of products ranging from laptops to all-in-coolers during Computex 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan at the ASUS booth, #M410 in Nangang Hall, from June 5-9. For a complete look at our new ROG products, please visit us at Republic of Gamers.

ROG Ryujin 360/240
The ROG Ryujin is our flagship thermal solution available in radiator sizes of 240 mm and 360 mm. This one is a showstopper with a stylish shroud infused with NCVM effects. The surface treatment and slash across the face match our recent motherboards designs, helping the cooler maintain a consistent aesthetic.
Liquid cooling is powerful, yet it doesn’t circulate air around the CPU socket like a traditional heatsink and fan. Airflow in this area is important because it is home to the VRMs responsible for powering the CPU and often an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs, so our engineers embedded a 60-mm fan inside the pump housing. This pushes air north, south, and west of the socket to lower the temperature of surrounding components. We designed the Ryujin to meet the thermal challenge of newer CPUs with ever-higher core counts. Noctua’s industrial-grade iPPC-2000 PWM fans are strapped to the radiator, blending high performance with low noise. The 1.77-inch LiveDash color OLED shows real-time system stats and personalized images and GIFs.
ROG Ryuo 240/120
The ROG Ryuo brings the Asetek core of its big brother to a more affordable package. Its aluminum pump cover skips the Ryujin’s extra shell in favor of a more conventional look. But you still get same OLED display, and the socket is illuminated by nine addressable LEDs. With 240-mm and 120-mm sizes, the Ryuo covers mid-sized builds and smaller form factors. The radiator fans are based on our in-house Wing-Blade design, which is shared by ROG graphics cards and our new Thor PSU. The shape is optimized for high airflow, while keeping noise levels down.
ROG Thor 1200W Platinum
The new ROG Thor 1200W Platinum PSU is the first power supply from the Republic of Gamers and designed for overclocked CPUs and multiple graphics cards. Later this year, it will be joined by an 850W version tailored for gaming PCs that aren’t quite as extreme. We’ve amped up the cooling on proven Seasonic hardware, included custom heatsinks, ensured 80 Plus Platinum certification, added a 10-year warranty and infused it all with customizable Aura Sync lighting and a real-time wattage information displayed on an OLED panel. The result is a premium PSU that’s perfectly at home in high-end ROG rigs.

ROG Strix Gaming Chassis
Tastefully designed in aluminum and smoked glass with addressable AURA Sync lighting technology, Strix Gaming Chassis offers a distinctively ROG design, which includes a swappable panel up front to change the looks, plus woven handles up top for easy carrying to LAN parties. The Strix chassis has room for high-end liquid coolers like the Ryujin 360, and it will include a vertical GPU bracket to showcase Strix graphics cards. Separate addressable lighting on the side and front panel plug directly into headers on ROG motherboards, illuminating everything with your personalized palette. In addition, ROG Strix Chassis features a Quick Charge 3.0 port, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, a tool-free ROG SSD caddy and magnetic dust filters.
The ROG Delta Type-C headset is the latest addition to our growing line of audio devices. Like its namesake, the Delta merges converging paths with ease, bridging PCs and mobile devices with USB-C connectivity that works with the latest examples of both, like our new Strix SCAR II and Hero II laptops and the ROG Phone.
With a lightweight design that’s optimized to cradle your head, the Delta is comfortable to wear whether you’re out and about with your phone or locked into a long battle on your PC. Inside, an ESS based quad-DAC array featuring an impressive 127-dB(A) SNR splits the stereo signal to produce clearer and more refined sound for games and other content. And outside, Aura Sync RGB lighting offers nearly limitless possibilities for personalized illumination.
ROG Balteus Qi
ROG Balteus Qi is an RGB gaming mouse pad that combines a performance surface with the convenience of Qi wireless charging on the desktop. A 370 x 320mm portrait-oriented surface offers ample space for simultaneous charging and gaming, while the micro-textured hard surface enables pixel-precise tracking. Featuring 15 individually customizable Aura Sync RGB lighting zones for personalization, the mouse pad is also equipped with an on-pad lighting mode button for on the fly adjustments and a USB 2.0 pass-through port for easy connections. Apart from ROG Balteus Qi, its sibling the Balteus will also be available for gamers who want the extra flair but without the wireless charging function.
ROG Gladius II Wireless
A natural fit for both laptops and desktops, the ROG Gladius II Wireless frees our most coveted gaming mouse from the shackles of a USB tether. It pairs ultra-fast RF and low latency Bluetooth technologies with a new Pixart 16000dpi sensor that provides impeccable tracking. We helped optimize the sensor’s power consumption to improve battery life, allowing the Gladius II Wireless to game for 24 hours with the lighting turned off. Aura Sync illumination is still available, and topping up the battery is easy with the included USB cable, which switches the mouse into wired mode for the best possible connection.
