If a stealth bomber looks like an Acer Predator
one touch overclocking? reminds me of the 486 that we had with a "turbo" button on it. Neat idea but in the end the "turbo" was always turned on.
Why do i need a button that can crank up the clock speeds when computers can do it on the fly on their own?
Cos kids love to press buttons, they can't help themselves.
Oh wow. I would be genuinely ashamed to have that warthog in my room!
Jesus F. Christ.
That thing is butt-numbing ugly.
Edit: Who was the lead designer, and why was he blind?
looks like a sperm whale head, with a not amused expression. :|
stealth bombers are ugly why would you use it as a base for a design. Unless my other half can't see it then its not much use.
It's Darth Vader's ugly brother.
I do not like that case at all. Looks like a Star Wars set piece.
Design cues from the Stealth Bomber? Hardly. Just another monolith ripoff from "2001: A Space Odyssey."
Like most gamers my choice of components in strictly personal. Pre-builts, whether by RoG or Sony, suck.
"Innovative Thermal Management System"? I'd bet almost anything it's just a variation of Corsairs Hydro-Cooling solutions.
ASUS, just stick with RoG mobo's. A RoG computer would be ridiculously expensive and I seriously doubt it would be the least bit innovative.
Might be the perspective, but it looks big enough to eat some of the attendees...
I'm not that familiar with how these 'overclocking buttons' work, is it just an overclock toggle? Like you'd press it when booting a game? Otherwise, what's the point of having such direct access?
But if it looks like a stealth bomber how the hell is anybody going to find one in the shops? I had the same problem when I went to buy some new camouflages... I couldn't find any anywhere.
Somebody drop AnG3L or Boddaker a line to mod the ugly out of that doorstop...lol
I definitely would agree with that.
I built a pc for a friend recently that had an overclocking button on it. And stop moaning about pre builds, as previously mentioned they are not aimed at us, they are aimed at time short cash rich type folks. As long as asus keep bringing out quality bits I'll still buy them.
This is just ASUS trying to cash in on their Republic of Gamers badge. Fair enough I guess, they are trying to make money after all.
I would say it is a nice idea for those who know nothing about building pc's. But then you could get a cheaper pre-built rig at Scan or Yoyo-tech if that was what you wanted. With this you will be paying a premium for the badge just like with Alienware. Not worth it IMO.
