The ASUS Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) Evangelion Unit-02 collection is finally here. The ROG-designed gaming components — including a motherboard, graphics card, chassis and more — adopt the red-and-orange thematic of the Evangelion Unit-02, piloted by fan-favorite Asuka of the popular anime series Evangelion. ROG’s second collaboration with Evangelion introduces a slew of customization opportunities for PC players and anime fans to revamp their gear and gaming stations.

ROG’s limited-edition hardware arrives with the all-new ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition motherboard, ROG Hyperion EVA-02 Edition chassis, ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ graphics card, ROG Ryujin AIO cooler and other gaming accessories like the ROG Strix Scope RX EVA-02 Edition keyboard, an ROG Herculx EVA-02 Edition card holder and a ROG Gladius III Wireless AimPoint EVA-02 gaming mouse.

At first glance, the collection is replete with Evangelion-themed motifs, graphics and lighting effects that elevate everyday gaming setups for collectors, hobbyists, anime lovers and professional gamers alike. The motherboard, for instance, features an AT Field design at the CPU pocket with Polymo lighting on the I/O cover switches, followed by backplate graphics featuring EVA-02 “The Beast” mode imagery. 13th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and a DDR5 memory kit provide exceptional performance and efficiency.

Other eye candy arrives with the EVA-02 Edition ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, which showcases an Asuka-themed color scheme dominated by pops of red, orange, yellow and neon green accents. In the throws of a heated battle, the Axial-tech fans with reverse rotation, 0dB technology and an exclusive vapor chamber design deliver top-notch performance. EVA-02 colorways decorate the fan shroud and right-hand side of the card, while Asuka graphics hit the backplate. The ROG Hyperion EVA-02 Edition chassis revisits a similar color scheme, featuring built-in lighting panels that internally display the Evangelion Unit-02 and eye-catching curves and sharp edges mirroring its likeness. Durable materials help aid the system’s operating temperatures alongside cable management functions that ensure a tidy gaming setup.

With the ROG Ryujin III 360 ARGB EVA-02 Edition AIO cooler, anime aficionados can display Asuka and EVA-02-themed animations on its expansive 3.5-inch LED screen or adorn its three 120mm fans with ROG- and EVA-02-themed stickers and a plethora of vibrant ARGB lighting effects. The cooler uses an advanced magnetic connector to monitor vital performance signals during intensive gameplay.

Elsewhere, the ROG Strix Scope RX EVA-02 Edition keyboard boasts a 100-million-keystroke lifespan and oversized Control and Stealth keys. Players can adjust the default orange and blue-green RGB lighting using the Fn+1 keys, while the EVA-02 Edition keycap set allows you to mix and match your RX keyboard displays. The ROG Gladius III Wireless AimPoint EVA-02 Edition mouse, equipped with an AimPoint optical sensor and ROG’s SpeedNova wireless technology, delivers cutthroat precision and near-zero-latency responsiveness during hectic firefights. The mouse can be paired with ROG’s Asuka-themed mouse grip tape, ensuring firm hand control throughout your gameplay.

The Evangelion Unit-02 collection is a cohesive gaming arsenal inviting PC players to mix and match their equipment based on their gameplay needs. ASUS is hosting an upcoming giveaway between October 6 and November 5, featuring its EVA-02 Edition 4090 graphics card, card holder, keyboard, mouse and mouse pad. Fans of Asuka have a chance to win up to $9,000 USD in prizes by completing the steps found on this giveaway page.
