ASUS ROG Ryujin & Ryuo CPU AIO Coolers

ASUS is extending its ROG branding to its own AIO CPU coolers, and if you think it is just "more of the same," ASUS has at least a couple of tricks up its sleeve! Asus has put a 1.77" OLED screen onto both these coolers which will allow you to customize the look and use it to monitor system specs as well.

With support for JPG and GIF image formats, including animated versions of the latter, there are loads of customization options available. It’s simple to swap out the default ROG logo to highlight your clan insignia or gamertag, and system builders can easily add bespoke branding of their own. If you prefer practicality, the LiveDash can monitor your hardware and display system vitals like temperatures, voltages, fan speeds. System monitoring is powered by our standard motherboard utility, so no additional software is required when using an ROG board. We also have a stand-alone app to enable monitoring on other vendors’ hardware.

The new AIOs are named Ryujin and Ryuo, with the Ryujin model possessing the flagship spot, and both are built by Asetek and use aluminum radiators. The Ryujin will come in 240mm and 360mm configurations and will be adorned with Noctua’s industrial grade iPPC-2000 PWM fans. The interesting kicker with it, is that the water block and pump housing contains a 60mm fan so it will keep airflow down onto the power components on the motherboard. The Ryuo foregos the enclosed housing fan and only is offered in a 240mm configuration. We should see both for sale in Q3.
