Asus ROG Ryuo 240 AIO Liquid Cooler
AIO cooling that demands to be seen and not heard.
Asus’ ROG brand might be best associated with motherboards and graphics cards, but that’s changing as the company branches out into other areas. We saw the Asus Ryuo and Ryujin CPU coolers on display at Computex and we’ve been itching to get our hands on them ever since.
The key differentiating feature of the Ryuo 240 is the 1.77 inch OLED display placed atop the block. It’s fully customizable and allows you to show off your own animations or pictures, or it can show real time monitoring information. The LiveDash control software is easy to use too. There’s a splash of RGB lighting around the aluminium shrouded block. It really looks amazing and it demands to be shown off in a tempered glass case. If PC aesthetics are important to you, the Ryuo (and big brother Ryujin) are about as good as it gets outside of fully customized solutions.
The Ryuo isn’t all about bling. It kept our 5GHz all core i7-8700K cool and did so without having to resort to unacceptable noise levels. Under normal loads it is effectively silent. It compares well to its big brother and a similar spec Corsair H100i Pro. The Corsair is cheaper, but doesn’t have the OLED screen of course.
The Asus Ryuo 240 is an eye catching and unique AIO cooler. You can get similar cooling performance for a lot cheaper elsewhere, but no other AIO cooler can match the unique aesthetic that the Ryuo offers.
