ROG AIOs - Ryujin and Ryuo
ASUS has officially unveiled their first series of Republic of Gamers all-in-one liquid coolers, offering gamers both entry-level and ultra-high-end models, both of which offer integrated OLED displays for unparalleled customizability.
These OLED displays can be used to display custom animations, custom text and custom logos. This display will allow users to customise their system to their liking, beyond what is possible with RGB lighting solutions. All of ASUS' ROG series AIOs will ship with RGB illumination, which is controllable using ASUS' Aura LED software suite.
ASUS' Republic of Gamers series AIOs is split into two categories, their high-end Ryujin series and their entry-level Ryuo series. Both of these products will ship with 1.77-inch OLED displays, though at this time we don't have any pricing information for either model.
The high-end ROG Ryujin will ship with 240mm and 360mm models, using Noctua PPC radiator fans to offer high-end cooling performance with a simple black aesthetic. ASUS has also integrated a fan into their block housing to provide additional cooling to the user's motherboard, VRMs and M.2 cards, which is said to decrease temperatures by as much as 20 degrees. Our only concern with this feature is that it may add some extra noise to the system, which is something that we will look into when we review the AIO.
Both ASUS' ROG Ryujin and Ryuo appear to be based on Asetek's water cooling technology, which means that both units will support both AMD and Intel systems at launch.
On the lower-end of ASUS' ROG liquid cooling lineup is the Ryuo, which will be available with either 240mm and 120mm radiator and custom Republic of Gamers fans. This AIO appears to be a custom Asetek design, though the integration of a 1.77-inch screen will make the Ryou a lot more customisable than competing AIOs.
ASUS has stated their new ROG series AIOs will be "available shortly" in the UK, so expect to see more from these AIOs soon.
