The 212 x 96 x 162mm (8.34” x 3.77” x 6.37”) Gaming Box is small enough to sit on the desk or even to carry with its included carrying case. Itsfootprint is notably smaller than the ASUS ROG XG Station measuring 312 x 170 x 44mm and most other competitors. As far as looks, the all black aluminum case displays theAORUS Falcon proudly flexing its wing on the front panel. Both sides of the chassis are covered with mesh allowing for airflow inside the case. Active cooling is provided by a large 130mm fan on the left side taking air in and feeding it directly to the video card inside.
