All the product pages are still under construction so not a lot of images have been released but here are larger images for your reference:
ROG HYPERION EVA-02 Edition
The ROG x EVA-02 Hyperion chassis features a red external with bits of purple and orange while the internal remains black like the original. An artwork of Unit-02 is on the front area and currently we don’t have a rear board panel image to see if they have Asuka or Unit 02 over there nor the main glass panel where ASUS has a decal of the characters.
ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO EVA-02 Edition
Clad in EVA-02’s red and orange, the ROG MAXIMUS Z790 HERO EVA-02 Edition features similar styling as the its set partners but instead of the icons or styling, the IO shroud features Unit 02 and Asuka herself on the light-up display.
ROG Strix RTX 4090 EVA-02 Edition
If Asuka is your waifu, nothing gets more premium than this: the ROG STRIX RTX 4090 EVA-02 Edition features a full-color print of Asuka on the backplate with the ROG red and blue logo on the fan shroud replaced with a red shroud with an orange and green logo. The LED light-up edge seems to default to orange but being RGB, it can be customized.
ROG Ryujin III 360 EVA-02 Edition
Another new product released in 2023 debuting with this set, the Ryujin III is the latest iteration of ROG’s AIO cooler featuring the latest Asetek cooling tech as well as a new fan set with no-cable connectors to allow a cleaner look. The ROG Ryujin III 360 EVA Edition seems to be only offered in this configuration without the Noctua fan version.
