That's quite an understated case as far as gaming PCs go. I wonder if the LEDs can be switched off or whether Asus plans to sell the case on its own.

Meh where's the fun in that? The best part about a proper computer is the whole process of selecting parts and assembling it yourself. It becomes a very personalised thing.

My concern is the very small amount of Intake Vents I can see. If it's really an Asus "ROG" setup; it'll be running so as to be overclocked for miles, in which case the lack of airflow will be an interesting mix.

Unless it's RoG right down to the SATA cables... I'm not impressed.

Plenty of people come to bit-tech for bit-gamer though.

...and apparently takes its design cues from the stealth bomber aircraft. However, it's currently unclear whether the case will fly.

Ya that would seem to be the case.
Which is a shame, because for me anyway, the R.O.G stuff was quality overclocker/builder stuff not "I've got an enormous wallet and I want to buy into a gaming name without knowing the first thing about it"
Lets hope it's not a new direction for them.

Actually, considering Asus gaming cases, this one is pretty minimalistic . If you want to see really horrific Asus cases : http://www.asus.com/Search/?SearchKey=vento

The best part is that if you click on any of them, you get :

No, components and PCs are always different but ROG is always gaming and overclocking with functional innovations through it to add value. ROG PCs are just a revenue stream and a market that ASUS are exploiting like any business. The markets not huge so we don't put a great deal into it, unlike gaming notebooks which are advertised more
