The ROG Huracan is one beautiful gaming desktop. When I say beautiful, I don’t mean just the aesthetics. But also how ASUS managed to cram an Intel Core i9 9900K and a GeForce RTX 2080 in the limited 13-liter chassis. And it still comes with ROG Aura lighting effects.

ASUS has intelligently designed the chassis to be able to deliver higher performance when thermal conditions allow for it. Unlike any compact gaming desktop in the market, there is a magnetically-secured side cover which lifts up to reveal air intakes.

Sensors detect the open side panel and will then boost the CPU and GPU performance by 11% and 8% respectively to take advantage of the extra airflow. It will also fire up the integrated Aura effects, giving you a better view of the innards.

Despite the compact dimensions, the ROG Huracan is still very upgradeable. The side panels can slide off for you to install upgrades or just for maintenance. Since the graphics card here is connected via a regular PCIe 3.0 interface and standard PCIe power connectors, you can upgrade it in the future as well. It’s smaller, yet more upgradeable than a Mac Pro 2019. And there’s also a hot-swap 2.5″ SSD bay at the top for either a semi-permanent upgrade, or just to transfer files between your systems.

Pokdepinion: The ROG Huracan G21 would be an amazing replacement for my mid-tower desktop… You do have to pay a premium for the compact dimensions though…
