Win the battle against heat
The Aurora chassis features a sophisticated system of thermally monitored and controlled air chambers that allow you to monitor your system's internal temperatures. The optional ALX chassis features the addition of automated Active Venting for on-demand heat dissipation during intense gaming sessions.
Keeping the Aurora cool is key for component longevity and performance. All Aurora systems come equipped with CPU liquid cooling that enables reduced system acoustics, improved heat transfer and greater overclocking potential than traditional heatsinks and fans. For even lower CPU temperatures and less fan noise, upgrade to the optional Premium CPU Liquid Cooling solution (premium solution comes standard with ALX chassis upgrade).
