Gigabyte reveals its first AIO CPU cooler

Gigabyte revealed this week its first all-in-one (AIO) closed-loop cooler, the Aorus Liquid Cooler 240. The cooler features a circular LCD display on the pump block as its headlining feature.

The 60×60-mm screen is a full-color display. It offers not only some built-in Aorus logos but also custom image and text modes, according to Gigabyte. The fans are operated by a single 3-pin ARGB connector, while a USB 2.0 header connection operates the display. Take note that while Gigabyte calls its display “full color” on the website, TechPowerUp says the display is white and gets its color from the RGB LED ring around the display. The ASUS ROG Ryujin AIO released last year uses an OLED screen, for comparison.

Gigabyte’s Aorus Liquid Cooler 240 name tells you a lot of important information right there. The pump block connects to a radiator measuring 240-mm long and 120-mm wide. In the box are a pair of 120-mm fans with double-ball bearings. The fans can rev up to 2,500 RPM, push 59.25 CFM of air, and the noise range starts at 18 dBA and goes up to 39.5. The block itself is copper, and Gigabyte is offering compatibility with AM4, LGA115x, and LGA2066 sockets.

The Asus Ryujin we mentioned before goes for $279 these days. The Aorus Liquid Cooler 240, is already available but hasn’t yet hit US retailers. We’re expecting to see a price somewhere south of Asus’ offering, considering the choice to go with an LCD over OLED.
