GIGABYTE Unveils Aorus Liquid Cooler 240

GIGABYTE today unveiled its first all-in-one closed-loop liquid CPU cooler, with the Aorus Liquid Cooler 240. A star attraction with this cooler is its cylindrical pump-block which has a circular LCD display on top, much like ASUS ROG Ryujin. Unlike the Ryujin, the display is white and takes up color from a circular RGB LED ring surrounding the display, giving it the appearance of a color display. Sleeved coolant tubes connect this block to a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator, which ventilated by a pair of 120 mm fans that have RGB LED illumination.

A single 3-pin addressable RGB connection handles lighting for the entire cooler, while a USB 2.0 header connection interfaces the cooler with GIGABYTE's RGB Fusion software, letting you cycle through its display. The included pair of 120 mm fans feature double ball-bearings, each spin up to 2,500 RPM, pushing 59.25 CFM of air, with a noise output of 18 to 39.5 dBA. The block is made of copper, while the radiator is made of aluminium. Among the CPU socket types supported are AM4, LGA115x, and LGA2066. The block is compatible with the Asetek-standard round AMD TR4 retention module that's part of Threadripper processors' retail package. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I.... like it.

I wish it didnt need or use USB tho, having it read its own coolant temp on its own would be best

If this is using software to access cpu package temp (like iCue also does for example), it will be hilarious when users realise, that it also prevents their Ryzen from going to idle :D

iCue does NOT prevent Ryzen CPUs from going idle...

I suppose MSI & ASROCK is next to the CLC party.

trust me, some versions of it do. Icues latest versions are an absolute shitshow, breaking intel and ryzen users idle and turbo clocks.

Check the icue forum on the corsair website, its not a pleasant place to be a corsair rep these days.

Maybe, if you are not controlling RGB via cpu temp for example. But if you do, it does prevent idle.

Well, I don't control anything RGB, so that might be why I'm not having any problems with it. Only controlling the fan speeds on my cooler.

I'm getting tired of all the software bloat that comes with AIOs but I am afraid to go back to an air cooler in fear it wont cool as good as my h115i to cool my 3900x.

I went back to old 3 pin fan controlled corsair hardware specifically to avoid that BS - still need icue for the fan hub that controls it all, but its a set and forget so i can set static RPM, close the software and avoid most of the issues

some very expensive hardware in my second PC now, just because of software bloat. If i could afford it, i'd be on custom water to avoid this BS.

If you go for a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 I can't imagine you'll have any problems keeping that 3900X cool. Hell, it's probably the only air cooler than can keep even the insanely hot running Intel Core i9 9900K cool and that's quite a job.

That is the one I was considering.

This is AIO King. BEST and MOST ADVANCED GPU EVER!






HERE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO UNDERSTAND MOST ADVANCED GPU EVER BUILD.
I UNDERSTAND CUSTOMER WHO PAY MAX 1100$ FOR RTX 2080Ti, BUT IF SOMEONE DECIDE TO PAY EVEN 1500$ THEN NO EXCUSE FOR GAMING ON OTHER MODELS.
THAT'S OPPOSITE TO ENTHUSIASM. ALL AMAZING PICTURES OF DETAILS ARE HERE AND ACCESSORIES, VARIANTS OF COOLING.

https://xdevs.com/guide/2080ti_kpe/#intro

No one ever launch such advanced GPU and that have nothing with chip performance.
She is so so amazing and attractive. With 8+8+8 pin connectors on back side in combination with angled 24pin on mobo and 8+8 CPU Power connectors above 24pin management is completely new level. You can tight 24pin ATX, 8+8pin CPU, 8+8+8pin GPU with same zip ties.

I don't believe any more in air cooling GPU with 200-250W power consumption. Only AIO or custom loop.
RTX2080Ti K|NGP|N with 240mm radiator have temperatures in range of custom loop, maybe 5-7C higher then great watercooling systems worth 500$.
I mean temperatures are so good and they are not limitation at all any more for overclocking on Air/Water... You can reach same clock as on custom waterloop. She is ready and for LN2 and that's different situation, but for everyday use, Hydro Copper block for K|NGP|N will not give higher frequency, maybe 5C less but she will crash on same clock and on AIO and on custom loop.

This by far best K|NGP|N model ever launched.
Only examination of details tell you that she cost a lot.
Actually this model deserve better graphic processors then crippled TU102, RTX2080Ti.
That's sin of NVIDIA. For this kind of models I would send GPU with all CUDA Cores.
