GIGABYTE entered the RAM market during Computex 2018 with RGB and all, and now the company has announced its premium AORUS brand power supply units (PSUs).
The new AORUS P850W and P750W are exactly what you think they are: 850W and 750W PSUs, with 80 PLUS Gold power efficiency silent operation, with GIGABYTE throwing in modular customization and enhanced durability.
GIGABYTE taps high quality 100% Japanese capacitors on the new AORUS PSUs, with a single +12V rail, and a huge 10-year warranty depending on your region. AORUS uses black flat cables for a beautiful modular design, so that your gaming rig can not only look awesome, but it will improve thermal performance compared to having chunky thick cables hanging out everywhere.
Computex 2018 - If you're in dire need of a serious PSU to drive a mining rig, FSP has your back with their new CANNON 2000W PSU... with yes, 2000W of power across 18 x PCIe power cables.
FSP had a few rigs set up at Computex with a slew of mining cards cranking away on the blockchain, with an octopus-style burst of cables coming from the back of the 2000W power supply.
There's no flashy and unneeded RGB here, just brute PSU strength and PCIe power cables.

Corsair hasn't had a super ridiculously high-end chassis since the Obsidian 900D which was released all the way back in 2013, before RGBs went mainstream, and now we're seeing a tease of the unannounced Obsidian 1000D chassis.
The new Corsair Obsidian 1000D is a beast, with the super-tower costing $500 and already listed early on Amazon. We should expect a beautiful style that is mixed with curved tempered glass, matte black aluminum, and RGB LEDs throughout. Inside, it's a bevy of ultimate enthusiast options.
Corsair has the front, sides, and top panels all made using curved tempered glass with aluminum inserts that allows for discrete air inlets for a bunch of fan mounts inside.

InWin had a huge CES this year, unveiling a slew of new products and teaming with ASUS on a TUG Gaming-specific chassis; the InWin 101 TUF Gaming chassis.
Starting with the new 101 TUF Gaming PC chassis, which InWin says has a "fresh new look" thanks to its ASUS TUF Gaming motherboard design, which sports a "fresh coat of orange-yellow" that provides a beautiful style that compliments the ASUS TUF Gaming motherboards.
Then InWin gets into the curves with their new 915 chassis being their latest full-tower E-ATX case that is "uniquely curved" and features RGB lighting, of course. InWin's new 915 features tinted tempered glass side panels, and rocks a top panel that automatically rises to increase airflow when you're gaming... or mining.
CES 2018 - SilverStone is going into SFFPCs strong with their VT03 Micro-STX case. The Micro-STX form factor allows for desktop CPUs and MXM based CPUs to work together in a very tiny case.
Many Micro-STX motherboards have external PSUs, just as a notebook would, but they carry desktop sockets and MXM card slots, so they can offer high performance computing. The VT03 had an ASRock LGA1151 STX motherboard with a GTX 1070 MXM GPU loaded into it.
SilverStone also showed us two beefed up Strider Platinum 1000W and 1200W PSUs, both are rated 80 Plus Platinum. They are both single rail PSUs, which makes them great for overclocking. They are also are fully modular, which is great for cable management and modding.
