ROG Ryujin III 360 ARGB CPU cooler

For all PC builders ready to open the throttle on their Intel or AMD CPU, we offer the new ROG Ryujin III AIO liquid coolers. Armed with the latest 8th Gen Asetek pump, a larger embedded pump fan, and a beefy 240mm or 360mm radiator, these units stand ready to tame your CPU’s heat without breaking a sweat. Three style options cater to any aesthetic, and the customizable 3.5-inch LCD display returns to help you personalize your PC like never before. 

Bold style in three unique flavors 

To make sure that there’s an ROG Ryujin III AIO cooler in the perfect style for any build, we’re launching a total of six new variants.  

ROG Ryujin III 240 ARGB White Edition CPU cooler

For builders who love the pristine surfaces of an all-white build — and the way that this finish uniquely reflects RGB LED lighting — we offer the ROG Ryujin III 240 ARGB White Edition and the ROG Ryujin III 360 ARGB White Edition. Perhaps you’d love the looks of those spinners better if they were housed in classic black? The ROG Ryujin III 240 ARGB and Ryujin III 360 ARGB beckon

Threee ROG MF-12S ARGB fans connected together in a daisy chain with magnetic connectors

All four of these models are equipped with ROG MF-12S ARGB fans that offer quiet, effective airflow and outstanding style in equal measure. These magnetic fans offer exceptional durability and stability for long-term performance. Their design is precisely aligned with the radiator holes to ensure damage-free assembly. Additionally, these fans are daisy-chainable. They snap together with a magnetic connector that links the fans and transmits control signals and power. Installation and cable management will be a breeze since you’ll only need one cable for all three fans, and you’ll end up with effortlessly synchronized ARGB lighting effects, too.

Maybe you’d rather embrace the darkness and drop the RGB LED lighting entirely. Take a look at the all-black ROG Ryujin III 240 and ROG Ryujin III 360. We equip these AIO coolers with premium Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 2000 fans. Spinning at a whisper-quiet 29.7 dBA, these fans offer an excellent balance of airflow and stealthy operation. 

New pump, who dis?  

With their 8th Gen Asetek pumps, the ROG Ryujin III AIO coolers deliver exceptional cooling potential, making them ideal partners for the latest high-end chips from Intel and AMD. These new pumps sport a 3-phase motor capable of higher flow rates at lower impedance than previous generations, all while operating more quietly.

We’ve boosted the diameter of the rubber tubes by 40% for better flow as well. The square coldplate is 32% larger than last-gen, and its size makes it ideal for cutting-edge CPUs. Coolant from the pump passes to a high-volume radiator with a capacity that we’ve boosted by 42%. Compared to the already-excellent ROG Ryujin II models, our new 360mm AIO coolers deliver temperatures 2° Celsius lower for every 100W of load.

Broad compatibility readies the ROG Ryujin III coolers for work in either AMD or Intel machines. If you’re building a cutting-edge PC with a Z790 or X670 motherboard, these coolers cover your needs. Their backward compatibility is extensive, too. Included hardware lets you mount them on a motherboard with an AM5 socket, and they're also ready for action on Intel motherboards with LGA 1700, LGA 115X, and LGA 1200 sockets. 

In living color  

For supreme personalization and invaluable hardware monitoring, you’ll find a 3.5-inch full-color LCD display atop the pump housing of the ROG Ryujin III AIO coolers. For the new generation, we’ve doubled the available memory from 16MB to 32MB to provide clearer content.

Double the memory means double the fun for your custom artwork and animations. With the ROG Ryujin III, you can tie the entire aesthetic of your build together with a personalized animation, logo, or image. Easy compatibility with JPG and GIF files means that you’re only limited by your imagination. 

You can also use the ROG Ryujin III’s display for real-time hardware monitoring. Through the easy-to-use Armoury Crate app, you can choose crucial system information, such as temperatures, voltages, fan speeds, or frequencies, and track that information on the display. For even more advanced monitoring, the ROG Ryujin III series also integrates seamlessly with the AIDA64 Extreme app. If you don’t already have a license for this enthusiast-grade software, don’t worry. You’ll get a one-year subscription to AIDA64 with your purchase of an ROG Ryujin III series AIO liquid cooler. 

Share the airflow 

ROG Ryujin III AIO coolers focus first and foremost on taming the heat of your cutting-edge CPU, but they’re also equipped to show some love to your VRMs. An innovative fan embedded right into the pump keeps a steady flow of air to the circuitry surrounding the CPU socket to keep these components operating at comfortable temperatures.

We’ve broken new ground in this generation with key upgrades that make the embedded pump fan more effective than ever. The new fan is larger and boasts a ring-shaped frame design that boosts static pressure by 71% over last generation. Redesigned airflow channels help direct airflow right where it’s needed most. Through our Armoury Crate software, you can easily adjust this fan’s speed, allowing you to get the right balance of performance and noise levels for your PC. 

Next-gen cool  

The ROG Ryujin III series of AIO liquid coolers will give your next PC build unbeatable style and premium cooling. The wide range of options available ensure that there’s a perfect model for you, whether you're looking for an option in stunning white or stealthy black. No matter which style you pick, you’ll get great cooling performance thanks to the 8th Gen Asetek pump and the embedded pump fan. You can make your build stand out from any PC out there with the fully customizable 3.5-inch display on the pump. What’s more, we back these with a generous 6-year warranty, giving you the confidence that your ROG AIO cooler will be helping your PC keep its cool for many years to come.
