GIGABYTE has shared a press release detailing Project Stealth, a new specially designed collection of PC components with a unique motherboard that attempts to eliminate “the headaches of cable clutter, installation challenges, and obstructed airflow” by shifting most of the usual connectors to the back of the board. Users will find the sockets for ATX power, CPU power, fans, USB, audio, front panel, and more on the back side of the Z690 AORUS ELITE STEALTH motherboard, something that GIGABYTE and collaborator MAINGEAR believe should help simplify cable management and installation. Other unique design elements presented in the Z690 AORUS ELITE STEALTH include an NVDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING OC STEALTH graphics card with an underside PCIe power socket design and a AORUS C300G STEALTH case with custom cutouts for increased ease of assembly. GIGABYTE says that its Project Stealth kit will be available “soon” on the market.

Z690 AORUS ELITE STEALTH moves all sockets like ATX power, CPU power, fans, USB, audio, front panel, etc. to the back of the motherboard, designed to simplify cable management and installation. RTX 3070 GAMING OC STEALTH combines an underside PCIE power socket design with the best-of-class gaming performance. With this exclusive motherboard and graphics card design, users can line their cables up to achieve a stylish, and sleek build with a clean look that compliments both tower coolers and AIO liquid coolers. To tie it all together, the AORUS C300G STEALTH case features custom cutouts, providing seamless integration with both the motherboard and graphics card, enabling easy cable routing for clean aesthetics and ease of assembly.

For those looking for a full solution featuring this innovation, MAINGEAR is announcing the Stealth Gaming PC, a fully integrated solution featuring all Project Stealth components. The Stealth Gaming PC will feature the same industry leading build quality and support of MAINGEAR’s award-winning custom gaming desktop PCs and workstations.
