There are two 330W power supplies to ensure all that liquid-cooled overclocking you'll be doing. Indeed, if you're not planning to overclock, you're probably looking at the wrong gaming machine.

ROG's compact desktop PC is getting a special tenth anniversary edition, which ASUS is claiming is the world's most powerful. Inside the G31 Edition 10, you can expect one-click CPU overclocking, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU with two-way SLI for 4K gaming, as well as its own ESS audio DAC and amplifier headphone jack for louder gunshots and such.
