Conclusion of the ASUS ROG RYOU 240 Review
The ASUS ROG RYUO 240 All-in-One complete water cooling fulfils its purpose: it cools the CPU. The “unique selling point” in the form of the OLED display looks good, but the setting and individualization of the software can actually be rated as a smooth “6”. The ASUS Aura Sync software installed on the system had to be completely reinstalled after the LiveDash software was installed. Using a custom logo didn’t really work and there were big discrepancies between two versions of the software. Unfortunately, not optimally functioning software in the RGB range is nothing new.
As for the volume, I can only say: quieter than the AMD standard cooler. Otherwise, quiet is something else. But since no tower cooler fits into the Lian Li-Tower used, an AiO with 240 mm radiator offers an acceptable solution. Optically ASUS ROG RYUO 240 All-in-One complete water cooling fits the used ASUS ROG hardware (ROG Strix GTX 1080 A8G, ROG Strix X470) and the RGB LED lighting can be synchronized via ASUS Aura Sync.
The OLED display itself offers a quite sharp resolution and to see the CPU temperature with a short look at the pump itself can be interesting from time to time. But if you don’t need the OLED or the RGB-LEDs, you can deactivate them quickly and easily via software.
