When ASUS first changed their packaging from the famous red and silver to black with red accents we admit we were unsure of their decision. After all, when you've created such a strong brand why deviate from that?

Unquestionably the first thing you notice is the square pump and display combo. We're so used to round pumps, or bevelled square ones, that a completely square one is breathtaking. It also makes perfect sense as it suits all the other straight edges in your system, and frees up the largest area around the CPU Socket.

Like all ASUS products the Ryujin II is big on the ROG branding with logos and names almost everywhere you look. You can also see the quality of the hoses and connectors here, as well as the exactness of the pre-applied thermal paste. The vents on the side of the pump will help keep it cool and extend its longevity, something with which we can get on board.

That price and still a cheap aluminium radiator, so it's basically no better then my Fractal celsius s36 but with a fancy display, it might look good but for the price, just wow.Quote

Just go with the NZXT Kraken Z73 at that point, has a cleaner looking pump and better display as well, plus cheaper.Quote
