The ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB AIO liquid cooler

PC builders know that better CPU cooling means better CPU performance. Unleash the power of your new Intel or AMD CPU with the new ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB. These premium all-in-one liquid coolers boast cutting-edge hardware ready to tame the thermals of your high-performance PC. They offer unforgettable good looks along with their flagship performance, too. With an embedded AniMe MatrixTM display, an aluminum cover, and a vacuum-coated lens, our all-new ROG Ryuo III coolers wrap up their advanced cooling tech with show-stopping style. And for those building a white-themed PC, we offer these two coolers in white editions, as well.

The next generation of chill

As the first AIO coolers equipped with an 8th gen Asetek pump, the ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB offer exceptional cooling potential, making them ideal partners for the latest high-end chips from Intel and AMD. This pump sports a 3-phase motor capable of higher flow rates than previous generations, all while operating more quietly. The square coldplate is larger than last-gen, as well, and its size makes it ideal for this year’s hot-off-the-press CPUs.

Coolant from the pump passes to a high-volume radiator. For every 100W of load, our new 360mm delivers temperatures 2° Celsius lower than last-gen. ROG AF 12S ARGB fans offer an ideal balance of static pressure, high airflow, and low noise levels as they keep air moving through the radiator. And they offer a dash of style to your build with ARGB illumination that you can coordinate with the rest of your PC through Aura Sync.

Broad compatibility readies the ROG Ryuo III ARGB coolers for work in either AMD or Intel machines. If you’re building a cutting-edge PC with a Z790 or X670 motherboard, this cooler covers your needs. Its backward compatibility is extensive, too. Included hardware lets you mount the cooler on a motherboard with an AM4 socket, and it’s also ready for action on Intel motherboards with LGA 1700, LGA 115X, and LGA 1200 sockets.

Unbounded customization with AniMe MatrixTM

You’ll find our dazzling AniMe MatrixTM display on select ROG laptops, peripherals, and motherboards—and now, you can bring it to the beating heart of your PC with the ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB. This array of mini-LEDs right on top of the pump housing lets you show off ROG-exclusive content, core system stats, and custom animations with unforgettable style.

From the moment you pull these coolers out of the box, you’ll have access to ten exclusive ROG animations. Just fire up the Armoury Crate app, pick your favorite, and enjoy the show. Matrix Editor makes it easy to tweak the color and basic effects of the AniMe MatrixTM. If you’re into custom artwork, you can also create your own images and text using the Armoury Crate Pixel Editor.

The AniMe MatrixTM is ready for serious work, too. Through Armoury Crate, you can also use the display to keep you up-to-date with vital system information, such as temperatures, frequencies, and fan speeds.

Flagship aesthetics

The AniMe MatrixTM display is just the start of the ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB’s sophisticated good looks. To complement the matrix pattern of the display, we fabricated a special knurled aluminum cover for the pump housing. The two patterns work together to create a striking and cohesive design aesthetic.

The diamond-cut bezel along the top edge of the housing focuses attention on the AniMe MatrixTM display. To maintain the aesthetic of the device under all circumstances, we install a vacuum-coated lens above the display. This special glass won't let you see through the mini-LED array to the hardware underneath when your PC is powered off or when you’ve chosen not to display any lighting effects.

Premium cooling, premium style

Your high-end PC build needs powerful cooling to unleash the full potential of your cutting-edge hardware—and your carefully selected components deserve a stylish centerpiece that brings it all together. The ROG Ryuo III 360 ARGB and ROG Ryuo III 240 ARGB all-in-one liquid coolers give you both high-end cooling performance and fully customizable good looks in one sophisticated design. And with black and white-themed versions available, you can pick a model that exactly matches the aesthetic of your build.
