The ROG GT51CH reaps the benefits from the new 7th Generation Intel Core i7 (Kaby Lake) processor, which offers low power consumption and serious overclocking potential.    

At the heart of the 2016 iF Design Award-winning full tower gaming desktop, lies the new processor liquid-cooled so it can be overclockable even further to 4.8GHz (4.6GHz in the previous generation), up to 64GB of DDR4 memory overclocked to 2800MHz, and up to two NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics cards in SLI for enough power to run Watch Dogs 2 with ultra detail settings in 4K Ultra-HD at an average of 66fps (frame per second), if you've played the game then you'd know that's fast!


This is the complete package; aesthetics, overclocked power, the latest technologies and custom cooling. With great overclocked power comes great cooling, the Hydro Overclocking System includes a liquid-cooling unit for the CPU and dedicated air channels to cool the graphics cards, even the PSU (power supply unit) has its own dedicated airflow design. 

The attention to detail in every aspect of the design such as the turbine-esque air intake, aerodynamic lines and 8-million-color lighting effects over four zones makes you wonder if ROG was in fact designing a supercar. As any PC builder or modder would agree, immaculate cable management is essential and may take hours, though you can just leave that to ROG. 

All the buttons, audio jacks, ports including two USB 3.1 (Type-A and Type-C) ports, and the optical drive are streamlined in design and easily accessible. For the audiophile gamer, the audio jack on the front connects to an ESS Sabre headphone DAC (digital-to-analog converter) with an amplifier that delivers high dynamic range (DNR) and exceptional signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for incredible sound whether in games, watching movies or listening to your jam.

Some people (including myself of course) have an insatiable desire in building the most awesomest gaming rig the world has ever seen, and then trying to top it by acquiring more skills in order to make it possible. For others, who also love all the mods and scratch builds you see here on the website and social media but have no particular interest in the inner workings of a rig, there's nothing wrong with a gamer who appreciates great-looking hardware and simply wants to do what he/she does best - PLAY GAMES!
