Asus' Iron Man Gaming PC Gets Kaby Lake Power

I've been captivated by the Asus GT51 gaming desktop since I first saw it last year, thanks to its massively stunning design that looks like something that would come out of Tony Stark's workshop. The PC is back as the GT51CH, featuring the latest 7th-gen Intel processors on top of its one-of-a-kind chassis and neat lighting options.

Key Specs

  • The GT51 utilizes Asus' Aura lighting, which allows the eye-catching sphere at the heart of the PC to glow up to 8 million different colors with a variety of lighting patterns.
  • The desktop features the latest 7th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, up to 64GB of RAM and up to 3TB of storage with dual 512GB SSDs.
  • Asus' new Aegis III software lets you adjust lighting effects and fan speeds, as well as overclock the machine.
  • The PC features a digital-to-analog audio converter to provide high-quality sound output at up to 32-bit/384KHz.

Why You Should Care

  • The Acer GT51 is a gaming desktop for true power users. It'll likely run a high price, but in exchange, you'll get some of the best components out there, some useful software tools and one of the most eye-catching chassis we've seen. For more on the GT51CH, stay tuned to Tom's Guide.
