New CPU Coolers - Gigabyte Aorus AIO Liquid Coolers

Gigabyte is another newcomer to the All-in-One (AIO) liquid cooling lineup, coming thanks to the rapid expansion of the company's Aorus sub-brand to cover SSDs, laptops, cases, power supplies, memory, monitors and more. Aorus is no longer a motherboard/graphics card brand; that era has long since passed. 

With the introduction of Gigabyte's Aorus series of pre-filled liquid coolers, Gigabyte has made it possible to create an Aorus-only gaming system, a prospect which is sure to whet the appetites of Gigabyte fans the world over. 

Gigabyte's Aorus series of Liquid Coolers are a premium affair, offering users a programmable 60x60mm circular OLED screen, addressable RGB lighting and a universal design that supports all motherboard brands. That said, why would you pair this cooler with anything other than a Gigabyte Aorus motherboard? If anything, this product is a statement of brand loyalty, and that effect is lost if you try to combine this with an ASUS ROG motherboard or an MSI Godlike. 

With 240mm, 280mm and 360mm models, Gigabyte's Aorus series of Liquid Coolers cover all bases, supporting all major consumer-grade CPU sockets while offering users a wealth of customisation options.

Users of these liquid coolers can customise their systems to showcase the temperature of your processor, a custom logo or a small animation. The limit here is your creativity, allowing you to see your system's thermals and other data at a glance or show off your design skills with some custom artwork.

An interesting feature of this cooler is that the Aorus' OLED display can be rotated, allowing users of this screen to customise their screen orientation to better suit their aesthetic preferences. Using Gigabyte's Aorus Engine and RGB Fusion 2.0 applications, users of this CPU cooler can customise the speed of this unit's fans/pump, look the performance of the unit and customise the liquid cooler's display and RGB lighting.

Great test. Surprised to see the Noctua so low down tbh.Quote

Remember that we have a lot of AIOs in there, and loads of 360mm models.

It's doing very well, especially at low fan RPMs. Very impressed TBH.Quote

I use a Cooler Master ML240 in one of my PCs... I would not recommend this cooler to anyone. It cools fine. But every few minutes or so, it gurgles.

I also do not recommend most other AIO coolers either. I 3D print a lot of cases, and what I noticed is that for a lot of these coolers, the tolerances on the actual radiator are complete garbage. The holes are not always exact. If you have a case which has variable hole spaces, they should work fine. But if you have cases which expect holes to be exactly 105mm apart, and they are 103mm or 107mm apart instead, you will have problems.

The best tolerances on radiators I have seen are from Deepcool GamerStorm. I highly recommend the GamerStorm Castle 360EX.Quote

I'm impressed at how comparable the 280mm Celsius+ is to the 360mm. Given the £30 price difference, if my case could fit the 280mm rad, I'd just go with that.

In fairness, the ML240 is over two years old now. In that time pumps have improved substantially in terms of quietness. I jumped aboard AIO's a few years ago and found them to be obnoxiously noisy. I moved back to air cooling and have been very happy. But since then Asetek have released a few iterations that across the board have improved noise levels. If I were building a new system, I'd consider an AIO again.Quote

Oddly AMD recommend a 280 for Ryzen 3900x and 3950x. Maybe they have just had more R&D recently? IDK.Quote
