Coming out of ASUS’ press event are a pair of new ASUS liquid coolers, falling under the ROG peripherals range. The Ryujin will be the flagship model available in 360mm and 240mm variants, with the focus on style and ROG branding as well as performance. One of the key elements from ASUS is the surface treatment of the cooler and the radiator, to maintain the design aesthetic. The Ryujin also includes a 60mm fan inside the pump housing, pushing air around the CPU cooler to help increase the airflow around the CPU which can be lost when moving to a liquid cooling system. For the radiator, Noctua’s iPPC-2000 PEM fans are included, and a 1.77-inch LiveDash color OLED gives the stats for the cooler with support for custom images and gifs.

The Ryuo is the smaller version, offered in 240mm and 120mm versions, and a more conventional using the Asetek core. The OLED display is still here, with an additional 9 LEDs on the cooler itself. The radiator fans are actually designed by ASUS, using a Wing-Blade design, shared with ROG graphics cards and the Thor power supply. The fans are configured for high-airflow and low noise, although exact data was not provided.

More information about pricing and specifications as we get it.

    too bad no watercooler is as silent as my noctua nh-15 setup.
    and the AOI 360 i have tested are not even much cooler (~8 degree).

    You realize with enough radiator volume that you could just have a custom loop with no fans on the radiators, right? It'll get warm, but the radiators can passively radiate heat with literally 0 fan noise.

    The problem aren't the fans. It's the pump. There is no comparison, and no working around the pump noise.

    Excellently named cooling products! Now, I can combine my Asus Thor PSU and my Ryujin water cooler inside a TUF case and then watch Japan brawl with Norway for dominance over my vengeful Corsair pirate RAM. Who will win? Will it be a god with a lightning hammer, a ninja, or a pirate?! Screw PC gaming with a rusty rebar. I think I'll put that library card to use instead (at least until someone starts to RGB the fiction section).

    Ryujin is Dragon god... fyi.. I think Pirate loses but Thor might put up a fight.. However you can always get an Asus Cerberus to throw around a little more fun.
