ASUS has introduced new AiO coolers within the Republic of Gamers. With the ASUS ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB, you can expect two different sizes, each offered in black and white color.
ASUS ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB in detail
The two advanced AiO coolers ASUS ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB focus on strong performance and are the first of their kind to feature an 8th generation Asetek pump.
This pump features a 3-phase motor that allows for higher flow rates than previous generations while operating even quieter. The square cold plate is larger than the previous generation and its size makes it ideal for this year’s hot new CPUs from Intel and AMD.
The pump directs the coolant to a large radiator. In the 360-mm model, the cooling capacity per 100 watts should allow for a temperature 2 degrees Celsius lower than the previous generation.
ROG AF 12S ARGB fans are used, which should effectively move air through the radiator at a low noise level. The RGB lighting can be synchronized with the rest of the PC via Aura Sync, of course.
Customizable thanks to AniMe matrix display
ASUS ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB also allow for a customizable look thanks to the AniMe Matrix display, which can also be found on various notebooks or peripherals like the ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 and G14.
This is now also found on the pump case. It allows the creation of ROG-exclusive content, as well as individual animations. Furthermore, with the help of the Pixel Editor, custom images and texts can be created and presented in unforgettable style. It is also possible to display the most important system statistics on the pump case. So CPU temperature, frequency or fan speed can be read comfortably.
The top edge is also framed by a diamond-cut bezel for a premium look. A vacuum-coated lens above the display prevents you from looking through the mini-LED array to the hardware below.
ASUS ROG’s new AiO coolers feature 400mm long tubing, providing flexibility for different designs as well as cable routing. In addition, the ROG Ryuo III series is compatible with a wide range of Intel and AMD motherboard platforms and should provide years of use.
The ROG RYUO III 240 ARGB and ROG RYUO III 360 ARGB are compatible with Intel sockets LGA 1700, 1200 and 115X, as well as AMD platforms AM5 and AM4.
