ASUS Announces Availability of Back-To-the-Future (BTF) Chassis

ASUS announced the availability of the ROG Hyperion BTF and TUF Gaming GT302 chassis, each designed to hide cables so builders can achieve a clean and organized aesthetic with PCs built for a wide variety of scenarios. This innovation is realized through a PCIe® high-power connector on graphics cards compatible with the graphics card high-power slot on BTF motherboards.


ASUS is driven to innovate, and we are constantly exploring and experimenting with technology to deliver better experiences to everyone. With this user-centric approach, ASUS has launched the Back-To-the-Future (BTF) series of products and solutions.

BTF represents a new direction that will lead the future of DIY. It symbolizes our goal of providing users with more aesthetically pleasing PC assembly by hiding connectors on the underside of a motherboard, leading to cleaner cable management and a more minimalist appearance.

Ready for a BTF Build 

The new ASUS ecosystem of Back-To-The-Future (BTF) PC components lets users easily build a PC that tucks the cables out of sight for a tidy look — made possible by new motherboards that hide their connectors on the back side rather than the front. For the most part, standard PC DIY components will work with a BTF motherboard, but users will need a compatible chassis. The ROG Hyperion BTF and TUF Gaming GT302 ARGB motherboard tray will work with standard motherboards, but it also includes the cutouts needed to access the connectors on a BTF motherboard.

Two chassis options for a BTF Build

For the most part, standard PC DIY components will work with a BTF motherboard. Users will not need specialized CPU coolers, power supplies, SSDs, or RAM; but they will need a compatible chassis. Standard motherboard trays will not let users access the connectors on a BTF motherboard. 

ROG Hyperion GR701

For out-of-the-box compatibility, ASUS offers two options. First is the ROG Hyperion GR701 BTF Edition. A special edition of our award-winning chassis, the ROG Hyperion GR701 BTF Edition takes the original’s premium feature set and adds motherboard tray cutouts perfectly positioned for users to access the connectors of their BTF motherboard. Like the original, it boasts outstanding cooling performance with its dual 420 mm radiator support, four 140 mm fans, and a built-in fan hub. It offers plenty of elbow room for even the beefiest of graphics cards, and it aids the build process with a 34 mm-deep cable management chamber with a 46 mm-wide routing channel.  

To give the TUF Gaming Z790-BTF WiFi a perfect home, ASUS is debuting an all-new TUF Gaming chassis: the TUF Gaming GT302 ARGB. This dazzling white mid-tower chassis is ready for a BTF motherboard, and it offers a host of cooling upgrades and innovative features ready to simplify the build process. 

TUF Gaming GT302 ARGB

For great out-of-the-box airflow, the TUF Gaming GT302 ARGB includes four 140 mm ARGB fans. Exceptionally thick units — 28 mm thick — ensure top-tier airflow and static pressure. Since so many builders opt for AIO liquid CPU coolers these days, ASUS is debuting a new feature with the GT302 that greatly simplifies the process of installing an AIO: The entire top panel is detachable so that users can easily install and clean the radiator.  

The GT302 also offers a compelling balance of size and component compatibility. As a mid-size tower, it does not demand as much desk space as does the ROG Hyperion BTF, yet it can still comfortably accommodate ATX motherboards and high-end graphics cards with substantial cooling solutions.
