ASUS Enters The Liquid PC Cooling Market With Ryujin and Ryuo AiO Coolers

Well it looks like ASUS is finally getting into the liquid PC cooling market as they are showing off new Republic of Gamers all-in-one liquid CPU coolers.

ROG Ryujin 360/240
The ROG Ryujin the our flagship thermal solution available in radiator sizes of 240 mm and 360 mm. This one is a showstopper with a stylish shroud infused with NCVM effects (a 1.77-inch full-color OLED display). The surface treatment and slash across the face match our recent motherboards designs, helping the cooler maintain a consistent aesthetic.

Liquid cooling is powerful, yet it doesn’t circulate air around the CPU socket like a traditional heatsink and fan. Airflow in this area is important because it is home to the VRMs responsible for powering the CPU and often an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs, so our engineers embedded a 60-mm fan inside the pump housing. This pushes air north, south, and west of the socket to lower the temperature of surrounding components. We designed the Ryujin to meet the thermal challenge of newer CPUs with ever-higher core counts. Noctua’s industrial-grade iPPC-2000 PWM fans are strapped to the radiator, blending high performance with low noise. The 1.77-inch LiveDash color OLED shows real-time system stats and personalized images and GIFs.

ROG Ryuo 240/120
The ROG Ryuo brings the Asetek core of its big brother to a more affordable package. Its aluminum pump cover skips the Ryujin’s extra shell in favor of a more conventional look. But you still get same OLED display, and the socket is illuminated by nine addressable LEDs. With 240-mm and 120-mm sizes, the Ryuo covers mid-sized builds and smaller form factors. The radiator fans are based on our in-house Wing-Blade design, which is shared by ROG graphics cards and our new Thor PSU. The shape is optimized for high airflow, while keeping noise levels down.
