It’s expensive but it looks bad ass. I love the small display on the block. Seeing as how the rest of my build is ASUS it’s pretty enticing. I usually agree with what you say in your videos but to say things like you’re not paying more for things like an oled display is wrong. That feature alone is what makes up a big part of the price difference. Sure you’ll pay a markup for ROG branding but not that much.

I find the noise tests funny because I cant hear them over my overpriced Cooler Master Masterfan Pros... the few Ive ever been able to hear over my fans I appreciate because it helps me identify the very worst in the market at least. I wish i had just spent the money on Noctuas instead but since i refuse to use those awfully colored ones I'd have an easy $100+ into noctua fans to get the black ones (my build is all black, no rgb, no colors, no frills) TLDR - Masterfan Pros suck. Or blow. Theyre loud and if they hit 100% speed they also hit my case, making even more noise.

ROG tax... ASUS used to be good once, but after going through 4 PG278Qs with no shortage of issues, it seems like they are resting on their laurels a bit too much. If you are charging that much, at least back it up with something worthwhile. :-(

The 240 Ryuo that I got, works fantastic, keeps my system cooler than the H80i V2 push/pull that I had, but it is louder. It's a brand new unit, AND it has an extremely sexy OLED display that I'm always looking at through my case. I could put quieter fans on it if I wanted, but fact is I don't. I paid $219cdn from Newegg and it's worth it, since it cools better than the NZXT and isn't 4 years old, and is very unique. Again, the pump is louder than the corsair, and the fans too are louder, but not 10dB or anything insane. If saving a few dollars is what you're after, this isn't for you. If you're an adult, then it doesn't matter.

testing on the i9 9900k might actually be poor testing because a number of these chip's have deformed IHS's. Take your 9900k and place it on the desk and see if it spins like a top. If it does: IHS is bowed, and you'll need to lap the thing. 70C on any AIO is ridiculous for an Intel chip, there's got to be a contact issue.

When I got my R7 1700x I got a $35 Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED with it and it is getting the job done fine. I could probably even overclock if I wanted to. I don’t know how I could ever justify getting a cooler for 10x the price.

I suppose it being a closed loop design and not expandable to add on more tubing is intentional to reduce liability for accidents happening with their main targeted demographic of consumer. ROG line appears to have a balance between PC enthusiasts and the casual/entry level gamer with money. That leaves probably little consideration for advanced features, to keep a simple but "gamer" aesthetic product line that will appeal to even entry level consumers.

Pretty much exactly what I thought and expected when I saw it listed on pcpp. How many people have their PC in a position where they could actually read that tiny little display from where they sit? Basically no one, I think. So the only time anyone's ever going to see it is when you have the thing on display at an event or something, and at that point you're talking about a niche within a niche within a niche audience. The VRM fan seems like a good idea though. How come no one else is doing that, but without the stupid little display? Just put a big honkin' RGB fan on top of the pump blowin' down at the motherboard.

i grabbed a corsair H150I and stuck a set of ML120 RGB's on it as opposed to the default unlit grey ML120's. my only regret is that the stupid "RGB" AiO was just an RGB cpu plate, not RGB fans, it was a pretty sound kick to the pants for it being a 220$ cooler in canada. looks good with the fans replaced though so it has that going for it. it just cost an arm and leg (220cad for the cooler, 120 cad for the replacement rgb fans) but to be fair the fans it came with were an easy 60$ back re-selling them.
