Today, NZXT announced that they’re partnering with ASUS to come out with an exclusive “ROG-certified” edition of the Noctis 450, featuring Aura sync and a new gun gray finish.
The Aura sync will enable users to synchronize lighting effects with more than 9 different lighting modes by connecting their Aura certified motherboards. It includes and powers two internal LED strips, the case’s power LED, some siiiick underglow and the PSU shroud. If you don’t have an Aura certified motherboard, they include a 4-pin adapter which allows the users to turn all the LEDs red.
Besides the finish and the LED features, this seems like a pretty standard case. We are told there are lots of mounting spaces for ventilation and radiator mountings if you want to watercool. Additionally, they include a 8-port PWM fan controller so you can hook up your motherboard and control voltage regulation for the case fans.

It is releasing in early February in North America and mid February in Europe for $179.99 USD.
