Asus Tuf Gaming Lc240 Rgb Liquid Cpu Cooler
Surprisingly silent, but not a killer cooler

We review an LCS from ASUS, in particular the TUF branded model. The version we review offers a 240mm radiator, RGB fans and a cooling block stamped with that TUF logo. The kit did not disappoint as it offers very low noise levels and fairly decent performance really. 

These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted with a single loop and ready to install straight out of the box. Armed with pretty nice looks, sleeved tubing, and an attractive price, ASUS offers a fairly competitive model in the massive LCS kit arena. The newly updated coolers are featuring an ARGB-accented pump face with a redesigned block and an upgraded on-radiator PWM fan hub with ARGB support. TUF Gaming LC RGB is a series of durable CPU liquid coolers designed for mid-sized gaming builds. Each cooler brings the performance, features and design needed to be an essential part of your gaming system. The coolers also include an illuminated RGB TUF Gaming logo with Aura Sync support on the pump housing and radiator fans, giving them a distinctive look.

Note: Before purchasing TUF Gaming LC RGB AIO cooler products, please ensure your motherboard has 4-pin RGB header(s) to connect the pump RGB lighting and bundled RGB FAN(s). Optimized Fan Design. Each radiator fan is specifically tuned to deliver optimum performance with TUF Gaming LC series radiators, generating 67 CFM / 3.0 mm H2O/ 29dB(A) for cooling efficiency.  
TUF Gaming LC RGB series is compatible with a wide range of Intel and AMD motherboard platforms, giving you the flexibility to pair it with your choice of processor. It also comes fitted with 38 cm of tubing to make mounting and routing easier.

The 240 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 shipped pressure tested, it is 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 the latest Intel LGA 1155/1156/2011 and AMD FM2 sockets as well as AM4 for Ryzen but not Threadripper processors. The series is equipped with a high-density water microchannel and copper finish block to offer efficient thermal conduction along with a proper radiator to maximize cooling performance.  The series we think builds upon technology from Asetek with some advancements. The coolers will be backed by a 5-year warranty. Let's head onward to the next page and start up the review.
