Aorus Liquid Cooler 360
Great looking LCS plagued by mediocre software
Gigabyte has unleashed a new Aorus cooler based on an Asetek base design, this round with fully addressable aRGB, an and LCD display enabled pump. That offers new bling options and really terrific looks. But is it all that it promises it will be? Well, the hardware turns out pretty good, but there’s more to it than that. The series is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution for desktop PCs and is available in 240mm, 280 and 360mm versions, visible liquid flow and bling thanks to very visual LED lighting. The 360 kit that we test is a self-contained (AIO) CPU cooling unit based on liquid cooling. It does not require much setup installation. With a pump and radiator ship pressure tested, pre-filled, and sealed directly from the factory to provide maintenance-free operation for years. This ease of use extends to its support of the latest Intel and AMD sockets including AM4; including the latest Intel LGA 1155/1156/2011 and most AMD sockets.
Presented in three radiator sizes, 240/280/360 and with full support for Intel 2066, 2011,1366,115x and AMD TR4, AM4 socket CPUs, AORUS Liquid Coolers are compatible for a multitude of builds. In true AORUS fashion, AORUS Liquid Coolers fuse functionality and gaming aesthetics with features such as dual ball-bearing structure fans and a circular LCD display pump cap, customizable with AORUS ENGINE and RGB Fusion 2.0. At the centerpiece of the AORUS Liquid Cooler design is the stylized, circular LCD display pump cap with vibrant, gamer aesthetics that users can customize to their liking to deck out their system. The LCD pump cap features four unique modes/tools to choose from including the Enthusiast Mode, Function Mode, Custom Mode, and Display Rotator for users to display CPU model information, related fan performance data, or custom images and text. With all that out of the way, let’s get started with the photo shoot.
