Testing AiO coolers for processors has become an increasingly repetitive routine. We haven’t seen anything fundamentally new in a long time. But this is not the case with the new product from Asus. With truly brutal performance, sufficient even for 350W Intel processors, comes an absolutely brilliant fan connection system.
Several recent reviews of AiO coolers concluded that the temperatures differed by only a few degrees at most compared to other coolers. We always had to focus on less essential functions, displays, RGB, controllers. Even so, the differences between AiO coolers of the same class were not large. It is always the price and sympathy for the brand that decides.
Although at first glance this cooler looked like the next in line before the test, it is not. He surprised absolutely in every way. Performance comes first. Temperatures are lower than coolers tested previously. This is the most powerful AiO cooler I’ve tested.
The second thing that absolutely blew me away are the fans and their power connection system. Only one magnetic cable instead of three for each fan separately. This is a must have solution for PC builders. This makes everything easier, especially cable management.
I also really appreciate the control of all fans and the pump through one application, which is simple and clear. As an added bonus, you get a display that can display anything, and the cooling of the VRM around the heatsink is definitely a solid feature.
The price is extreme, but you get the best in every way.
Thank you for lending the complete hardware for the test Asus Czech Republic
