ASUS Expands ROG Strix LC Lineup with a 360mm Model

ASUS today expanded its ROG Strix LC line of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers with a new top variant that comes with a large 360 mm x 120 mm radiator for better cooling. The ROG Strix LC series had debuted in May with 120 mm and 240 mm variants. ASUS bundles three of the same 120 mm fans it includes with the pricier Ryuo series, which take in 4-pin PWM input, spin between 800 to 2,500 RPM, pushing up to 80.95 CFM of air, with a noise output of up to 29.7 dBA, each. Characteristic to the ROG Strix LC series, the pump-block features spirally-projecting RGB LED diffusers along the sides, and an illuminated ROG logo on top. All lighting is controlled by addressable-RGB (ASUS Aura Sync RGB). The cooler supports nearly all modern CPU socket types, including AM4, LGA115x, and LGA2066. The pump-block supports the Asetek-standard AIO CLC retention module AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors include in their PIB packages.

"..supports the Asetek-standard ....."

You mean its MADE by Asetek - because if not.



Somebody using Aseteks design

Asetek: "Ohhh hell nawwwww"

At least it doesnt look like it comes with £75's worth of Noctua IndustrialPPC fans so Asus arent gonna rip you off that. much. harder. They just gonna rip you off like they normally would for ROG stuff.

They're normal length. It's just the angle of the dangle.

Nah, another boring Asetek AIO.. Strix used to be a high-end lineup, these days they aren't that.

Strix was never a high end lineup and always just branding out of your arsehole to inflate price. Hell they even released non-OC Strix cards, go figure. ROG, that was the premium branding, really, emphasis on WAS.

Asus shifted things a bit, TUF is now in some non-Asus product as well. The bottom line is that all of that branding has become fully irrelevant a few years ago. Safest bet is to consider everything to be cheap knockoff - more often than not, its correct.

Hm, I thought my old GTX 980 Strix was a high-end model...

Also Sabertooths (TUFs) were a great lineup, these days they're budget models..

I'd say the Strix cards are still pretty good. Still some of the best you can get, if you catch them on a pricing down-swing (which does happen often enough.) Otherwise I say don't bother.

And then as far as ROG stuff goes you have the Crosshair mobos... those are still upper echelon boards for sure.

The rest really is just generic mainstream stuff, like everyone else's 'gamer' lines. I've got an ROG Strix x370-F mobo and I can say that while it's not a bad motherboard, it is just your standard-fare, mainstream, midrange mobo. The VRM's are pretty good next to competitors, but still nothing special.

Like a lot of other brands, it's just been thinned down with a bunch of generic, lower-quality entries. And they mess with stuff they probably shouldn't bother with, such as really vanilla-looking/performing AIO's. The good stuff is still there. It's just proportionally less due to the inclusion of more crap.

TUF kinda bums me out... it's like it doesn't really exist. The products now, while still not bad, just aren't what they used to be from what I've seen. I know some people still really swear by them, though. Maybe they haven't fallen as far as I think, but I seem to remember a few of their latest entries not quite being up to previous standards. They're almost not in the same league as the old stuff.
