The ROG Strix Aura Gold power supply, with purple lights shining from behind and on the illuminated ROG logo.

We built the original ROG Strix 850W Gold PSU to provide stable, efficient, cool and quiet power to mainstream rigs of all stripes. But technology marches ever onward, and with modern graphics cards driving the new ATX 3.0 standard of power delivery, it’s time to take Strix to the next level. Introducing the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition, which brings improved cooling, 16-pin PCIe support, and Aura Sync RGB to your next power supply. 

Like its predecessor, the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition series—available in 750W, 850W, 1000W, and 1200W variants--stand apart from competing power supplies thanks to a larger heatsink for cool, quiet operation. With twice the volume of traditional PSU heatsinks, this design allows for lower temperatures, longer component lifespan, and longer 0dB operation under light and medium loads. However, with the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition, we went even further: the entire power supply is now encased in a sleek aluminum chassis that acts as its own heatsink, further reducing temperatures and minimizing noise. 

All this heat dissipation is aided by our 135mm Axial-tech fan design, featuring a dual ball bearing for long-term operation and longer fan blades to improve airflow. It also shares the same 80 Plus Gold certification as its predecessor, with efficient, low-ESR Japanese capacitors rated to last up to twice as long as standard caps. 

Arguably the biggest upgrade, however, is the new 16-pin power connector for modern graphics cards. While previous power supplies required an adapter for use with certain modern GPUs, the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition power supplies are bundled with a native 16-pin PCIe cable that can pipe up to 600W of clean, stable power directly to your ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 or TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 — no adapter required. 

In addition, as the name suggests, the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition series is now compatible with Aura Sync, thanks to new RGB lighting on the Fearless Eye logo. Use the included RGB connection cable to plug the power supply directly into a 3-pin addressable RGB header on your motherboard, and you can sync up its lighting with the rest of your system — whether you’re going full rainbow or a color-coordinated starry night effect, your power supply can now enjoy all the same unique lighting patterns as your other ROG gear. 

We’re so confident about the reliability of the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition power supplies that we back them with a 10-year limited warranty*. If you’re ready for the future of power delivery, contact your local ASUS representative for pricing and availability. 

*Core product operation is guaranteed for 10 years. The RGB LEDs are subject to a 3-year warranty.
