AORUS AIO – The Best to COOL the Beast

For those of you that are planning to get the high end Intel 10th generation Core series processor and worry about cooling, Gigabyte has an assuring message for all of you that their AIO will work well with those monstrous power hungry processor. 🙂

Below is their press release but before that, just so you know the following is the price for their Aorus AIO range:
360MM model : MSRP RM 1029
280MM model : MSRP RM 899
240MM model : MSRP RM 819

Now with that done, let’s proceed with what Gigabyte has to say.


Gigabyte today announced the whole AORUS LIQUID COOLER Series can support Intel® i9 10900K CPUs running at all cores 5.2GHz and pass the long-period burning test of Prime95 benchmark with super high loading. This proves that the superior quality and performance of AORUS LIQUID COOLER not only provide optimized overclocking ability to enthusiast using Intel Z490 platform with Intel® Core™ i9 10900K processors, but also bring general users ultra cool, ultra performance, and ultra durable experience

“AORUS LIQUID COOLER met with praise right after released. Following the verification of AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 3990X on 360 models, this time the whole series pass the heavy loading burning test and overclocking with Intel® Core™ i9 10900K CPUs at all cores 5.2GHz, has further testified the quality of AORUS LIQUID COOLER and the efforts of GIGABYTE engineers. “said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division. “The success under the heavy loading test shows it’s more than enough for general use. In addition to the durability, superior performance, and high capacity, the LCD display and RGB lighting design of AORUS LIQUID COOLER provide users a controllable system and unique system style which can be synchronized with peripherals.

Multicore CPUs are the norm for latest high-end builds, but faster clock speeds can generate excess heat which slows performance. AORUS LIQUID COOLER is designed specifically to handle the heat generated by latest generation CPUs. With an Asetek Gen6 Pump and AORUS special designed fans that deliver ultra-efficient and silent cooling, CPUs can run fluidly even under high frequency and heavy loads.

Take the Intel® Core™ i9 10900K processor with 10 cores and 20 treads as an example; it can run heavy loading of Prime95 test software at all-core 5.2GHz for a total TDP boost of over 320 watts. To suppress the high heat, a high quality cooler is a must for heat dissipation. AORUS LIQUID COOLER sports a superior matching of perfect fan size and speed setting to ensure premium dissipation effect, which optimize the stability of CPUs under all-core 5.2GHz overclocking heavy loading test. Through the harsh test and verification, GIGABYTE ensures users a stable and efficient dissipation during general use. AORUS LIQUID COOLER adopts a dual ball bearing fan structure which has superior efficiency and durability, with double the service life compared to sleeve bearing structure fans. The unique fan blade design reduces the unwanted noise associated with higher fan speeds, striking the best balance between fan efficiency and fan noise.

LIQUID COOLER features a stylized, circular LCD display pump cap with textured aluminum extrusion design. The LCD pump cap provides four default modes to choose from, including the Enthusiast Mode, Function Mode, Text Custom Mode, and Image Custom Mode, which can display customized text, images, and information accordingly. With a unique Display Rotator, users can adjust displayed information with suitable direction and mode to easily control the dissipation condition of cooler and processors for the premium heat dissipation. With support of RGB Fusion 2.0, users can adapt the lighting of LCD displays and multiple integrated ARGB digital LED lighting modes, creating personalized gaming systems with fluid lighting effects.
