ASUS has begun a new certification program for any hardware providers. Any partners that want to show off the ‘Republic of Gamers’ seal on their gear have to qualify by matching up with the ROG red-and-black colors, and keep up with the minimum quality standards. They also MUST look crazy intense.

In this case, the product is a case.
Hardware partner In Win took the task of colour, capability and outlandish excess and went a few steps further. The simple task of opening and closing the case has been turned into an Optimus-Prime-esque dance. Push the button at its base, and the metal plates forming the sides spilt apart, away and open up like an Autobot. The motherboard then rises and tilts, making additional modification and component changes far easier.
The H-Tower Concept Case has raised the bar
Another button, and suddenly the case reverts back to its usual cube. The inside and outside are full of lasers and LEDs, helping light the interior – and living up to the intense requirement – There is even a built-in LED-lit cooling system. ASUS showed off the ‘Republic of Gamers’ sealed case will be available in Q3 of this year, which means Alienware has a little time left to come up with something even crazier.
