Iron Man-Inspired ROG GT51 Gaming Desktop Revealed!

During the launch of the ROG GX700 liquid-cooled gaming laptop, Republic of Gamers also unveiled the ROG GT51 gaming desktop. This Iron Man-inspired system is a winner of the 2016 CES Innovation Award, as well as the iF Design Award. But it’s not all beauty without brawn. Under the steely facade is an awesome gaming machine. Let’s take a look!


ROG GT51 – Inspired By Iron Man

Inspired by Iron Man, the ROG GT51 has an sharp-angled polygonal design with an Arc Reactor motive in the front. The “Arc Reactor” is actually a fully-functional turbine fan with pulse-width modulation (PWM) control that draws in fresh air. There is even a 4-zone LED lighting feature that supports up to 8 million colours, and a preset OC lighting mode that is activated when the system is overclocked.


Overclocked For Maximum Performance

The ROG GT51 gaming desktop is powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, that is cooled by the ROG-patented liquid-cooled Hydro Overclocking System. That allows you to overclock all cores to 4.6 GHz using the Turbo Gear one-click feature. Even its DDR4 memory is overclocked from 2133 MHz to 2800 MHz.

For UHD gaming at over 60 frames per second, the ROG GT51 supports up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. And to ensure that everything loads at maximum speed, it features up to two 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSDs. When paired in a RAID 0 array, the SSDs deliver transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s – 6X faster than SATA SSDs.

To ensure that nothing overheats, even during marathon gaming sessions, the ROG GT51 boasts a multi-zone cooling design that lowers its internal temperature by up to 31%. In addition to the Hydro Overclocking System, there are dedicated air channels to draw cool air to cool the graphics cards. Even its power supply unit is isolated with its own dedicated airflow.

Raw performance isn’t its only goal. The ROG GT51 also boasts an ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier that powers the front audio jacks. This gives the gamer audiophile-grade sound with high dynamic range, low noise and low distortion.

The ROG GT51 will come with the ROG Band. This is a NFC-enabled band that can be used to authenticate the user for quick access to Shadow Drive. Shadow Drive is a hidden and encrypted partition that provides safe storage of confidential data. The ROG Band can also be used to quickly activate the overclocking mode.


ROG GT51 Price & Availability

The ROG GT51 will be available in June 2016. As such, the local price has yet to be determined.

ROG GX700 Liquid-Cooled Gaming Laptop Revealed!

Water and computers don’t mix well. That’s a fact that hardware enthusiasts have to deal with when they keep their overclocked computers cool using water cooling systems. The weight and bulk of these water cooling systems as well as the need to ensure water-tight connections have, so far, kept them from ever being used in a laptop. That changes with the ROG GX700 – the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop.


ROG GX700 Liquid-Cooling Technology Revealed

On April 27, 2016, Republic of Gamers (ROG) unveiled the ROG GX700 with a detachable Hydro Overclocking System cooling module. During the event, they revealed how they accomplished this feat – creating a liquid-cooled gaming laptop. They also revealed the performance boost ROG GX700 users can expect from using the Hydro Overclocking System.

The ROG GX700 is powered by the 6th Generation Intel Core i7 (Skylake-K) mobile processor, and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics processor to give users the best possible performance in a mobile form factor. Once docked to the ROG Hydro Overclocking System, the GX700 is automatically overclocked to perform like a high-performance gaming desktop. [adrotate banner=”5″]


ROG GX700 & Hydro Overclocking System Preview

This video starts with two ROG beauties showing off the ROG GX700 liquid-cooled gaming laptop. Also check out the awesome luggage case it comes with. When an ROG gamer goes to a LAN party, it’s in style. Then we take a close look at the Hydro Overclocking System.

The ROG Hydro Overclocking System

When the ROG GX700 is attached to the ROG Hydro Overclocking System, a pump in the center pumps a liquid coolant into GX700 where it absorbs heat from the CPU, graphics processor and the memory modules. The heated coolant is then channeled back into the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate the heat. The coolant is then recirculated back into the GX700.

To ensure water-fastness, the Hydro Overclocking System uses a patented connector design between the cooling module and the ROG GX700 notebook that prevents leaking. They even made sure that the pipes are kink-proof so the liquid coolant flows smoothly. To reduce maintenance, ROG uses a liquid coolant with organic-acid inhibitor to protect the internal components from corrosion. They also designed the system for very low depletion rate of the additive.


Extreme Overclocking

Thanks to the Hydro Overclocking System, the ROG GX700 can deliver much better overclocking potential. According to Republic of Gamers, users can overclock the Intel Core i7 processor by up to 48% with a BClock boost of 31% – boosting the clock speed from 3.2 GHz to 4.0 GHz.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 GPU can be overclocked by 43%, delivering 3DMark 11 score in excess of 17,000. Even the DDR4 memory modules can be overclocked by 31%, from 2133 MHz to 2800 MHz.
