CES 2017: NZXT and Asus team up to create a special Noctis 450 ROG PC case

NZXT will design specialized versions of one of its most popular case designs with various partners.


Manufacturer NZXT announced a partnership with Asus to spice up its Noctis 450 ROG PC case.

NZXT and Asus upgraded the Noctis 450, one of NZXT's most popular chassis, to the Noctis 450 ROG. The case suits mid-range towers, and features tricked-out add-ons such as synchronized lighting effects across nine lighting modes and a gun-metal gray finish.

Some of the Noctis 450 ROG's more pragmatic bells and whistles span plenty of space for multiple fans up front, up top, and in the back; support for two radiators for liquid cooling; and room for up to six 3.5-inch drives and eight 2.5-inch drives.

To take advantage of the ROG's flashier feature set, you'll need to pair it with an Aura-certified motherboard using a dedicated connector. Unsurprisingly, several of Asus' motherboards support Aura.

Users without Aura-compatible boards can use a four-pin adapter to light up LEDs in red.

NZXT and Asus will launch the Noctis 450 ROG in North America in early February at an MSRP of $180.
