    DURABILITY

    UNMATCHED TOUGHNESS

    Strix GL10CS has undergone a series of rigorous quality tests[vi] , including drop and vibration, thermal, noise, and voltage testing to ensure it meets our exacting standards, and surpasses those of the competition

    EXTREMELY ROBUST

    Drop tests help ensure that the chassis and internal components of each Strix desktop is resistant to damage from unexpected drops, knocks, and bumps during daily use, resulting better durability than standard PCs. In addition, extensive vibration testing ensures all critical components remain securely attached and maintain integrity.

    WITHSTANDS ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREMES

    ROG engineers amped up the environment testing, subjecting each Strix gaming desktop to numerous extreme temperature and humidity cycles on opposite ends of the scale. They tested conditions from dry, subzero temperatures to hot, humid environments to ensure Strix GL10CS holds up well and works perfectly right out of the box.

    QUIET AND STABLE

    Strix GL10CS is subjected to acoustic tests to ensure its fans, hard drive, and power supply deliver the quietest performance possible, generating just 30dB of noise at idle![vii]

    READY TO TAKE ON THE WORLD

    Strix gaming desktops need to be able to function anywhere in the world, so they’re subjected to extreme voltage and frequency fluctuations. This ensures that they’re able to cope with unstable power from a wall socket, without affecting performance or component lifespan.

    AUDIO

    IMMERSIVE SOUND EXPERIENCE

    Strix GL10CS features DTS Headphone:X technology to deliver immersive high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround-sound for home theater-quality audio through headphones. It features optimized settings for games, movie, sports, and a built-in equalizer for additional fine-tuning.

    THERMAL

    STAY COOL DURING INTENSE GAMING SESSIONS

    Strix GL10CS has a thermal design featuring two isolated air chambers. The upper chamber houses the CPU and GPU, while the power supply unit and the HDDs can be found in the lower chamber. The isolated chambers provide cleaner airflow through the system, and prevent heat from the CPU and GPU from warming up the power supply unit and storage drives.

    SOFTWARE

    UNIFIED SYSTEM CONTROL WITH ARMOURY CRATE

    The brand-new ROG Armoury Crate software unifies system and lighting control and puts them at your fingertips. Its user-friendly interface lets you manage up to four gaming profiles that automatically load your preferred settings when you launch your favorite titles. These options are the beginning for what will become an even more versatile tool.

    CONNECTIVITY

    EXTENSIVE CONNECTIVITY

    Strix GL10CS gives you quick and easy access to all the essentials, with two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports and an audio combo jack in the front. Everything else you need, including the additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI output, are right where you expect them to be.[viii]
