Aegis II, Asus command and Ai Charger II software comes pre-installed. The unique thing about this desktop is the LED lightings, once you switch on the desktop – it looks really awesome, even the keyboard light up, it gives you the same feel as you get on the Asus ROG laptops.

The biggest issue with performance desktops is the sound and heat. The Asus G11CB comes with efficient heat dissipation technique for effective cooling. The 5mm vents help keep the CPU cool, air is drawn from the front into the chassis for effective thermal management. The end result is that the CPU performs at its optimal levels and the heat buildup is pretty much under control. But the best part is the hardware sound, you hardly feel it.

Another unique thing about the Asus G11CB is the desktop LED light you can actually change the color and choose from any color you want. Gaming users spend a lot of time around their desktops, this is a good option to let the users choose the color they like as per their mood.

Performance

From the specs it is clear that the hardware is very powerful. NovaBench Benchmark score was 2107. This hardware can play many games. I tried FarCry 4. You need a high quality monitor for better results, I did not have one but I was able to connect the G11CB with my HDMI TV with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. It did well but would have been much better and even better on a 4K monitor.

The FarCry 4 game played very well, very smooth and lag free. Do check the video review.

Verdict

The Asus G11CB is a very powerful gaming desktop that boots up with few seconds (check video review). If you are a heavy gaming user this Desktop is for you. You can play latest games and when it comes to the Desktop operating sound it’s too low, hardly audible.

Rating 4 out of 5.

Asus G11CB does come for a price of around 1,00,000.
