It’s not really the first liquid-cooled to feature a configurable LCD display, since NZXT has the entire Z series of products carrying it and in fact Asus itself has the ROG Ryuo with the LiveDash OLED display. However, compared to other models, this ROG Ryujin II stands out with the largest LCD screen to date, at 3.5 inches (compared to the 1.77 inches of the Ryuo or the 2.36 inches of the NZXT products).
Asus ROG Ryujin II, combining performance and aesthetics
The new Asus ROG Ryujin II AIO liquid cooling kit is equipped with a seventh generation Asetek pump which stands out for its quiet operation, and its base speed is 840 rpm nothing more and even so it is capable of move a huge flow of liquid inside the cooling system. Both options for this Ryujin II come with one 240mm radiator and two 120mm fans or one 360mm radiator and three of these fans.
To cool the radiator, in this case curiously Asus has teamed up with the award-winning Austrian manufacturer Noctua, and equips Noctua NF-F12 fans completely in black. The tube that connects the radiator to the head has been reinforced to last a long time and withstand multiple installations and uninstalls, so it is clear that Asus has strived to provide excellent build quality to this product.
Asus’ COO Joe Hsieh was excited about the development of these Ryujin II coolers and the end result. Here are his statements about it:
“To develop the next generation of our high-end Ryujin radiators, we once again relied on Asetek and its most advanced technology to date, delivering extreme performance, quiet operation and proven quality and reliability in the industry. industry. With the ROG Ryujin II 240/360, we didn’t just want to maximize performance, we wanted to improve aesthetics by upgrading the screen to a large LCD panel and keeping the FanXpert controls.
Obviously, the key feature of this AIO liquid cooling is its 3.5 inch LCD screen (comparatively, it’s like the screen of an iPhone 4). On this screen, the user will be able to view real-time performance statistics (such as temperature or fan speed) or custom images and animations. The pumphead has a fan located below the display to provide additional cooling to the VRM area on the board.
This Asus liquid cooling kit automatically positions itself as its top of the line, and while we still don’t know the selling price or the rest of its specs, a scholar shouldn’t know that its price will also be very high. It won’t be long before we can find out, since the manufacturer has already “launched” it, which means that in a few weeks we should start seeing it in stores.
