ASUS ROG STRIX GD30CI Desktop – Review

The ROG STRIX GD30CI is ASUS high-range gaming PC and the completely redesign star wars theme. ROG STRIX GD30CI comes with high-end components, adding that ASUS price premium, too.

ASUS ROG STRIX GD30CI – Design and Build

The GD30CI is a mid-tower PC, meaning it’s substantially smaller than what most people are used to seeing in a gaming PC. It’s pretty stylish, too. The front of the PC is dominated by ventilation slits and a white cover for the optical drive bays. The top of the PC is design “Strix style”, with a crease in the middle that sweeps around to the rear of the PC.

The front of the GD30CI is loaded with more USB ports than you’ll probably ever need, including 2USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports,  2 audio in/out ports and an additional MicroSD card reader.

When we first unboxed the ROG Strix GD30CI, we were struck by how much it looked like the armor of an Imperial Stormtrooper from Star Wars

The right-side panel sports nothing more than a few stickers. But the opposite side features a window that lets you peer into the LED-lit chassis, albeit through some mesh that coats the inside of the transparent window. And thanks to the system’s Aura RGB lighting controls, accessible through Asus’ Aegis III software utility, you’ll be able to control the lighting, choosing from a number of colors and lighting patterns. Steady color and cycling effects are all on the menu.

We did a bios, driver and windows updated before we run any benchmark test.

The ROG STRIX GD30CI is an excellent gaming PC that offers brilliant performance in a nicely design casing. The price is pretty expensive as well, considering on the high end spec and 3 years on-site warranty.
