Asus LGA 1700 Ready CPU Coolers For Intel 12th Gen CPUs
Asus has already updated its product line to support the new Intel 12th generation of Alder Lake CPUs. New LGA 1700 mounting hardware includes CPU coolers such as the ASUS Rog Ryujin 360 RGB, ASUS ROG Strix LC 240 RGB, and TUF Gaming LC ARGB.
The following are the LGA 1700 ready all-in-one liquid coolers from Asus that you can buy right now:
Asus Rog Ryujin 360 RGB
The Asus Rog Ryujin 360 RGB is the top-of-the-line all-in-one liquid cooler the company has to offer and will work well with the higher-end Intel 12th generation CPUs such as the 12900K or the 12700K.
The cooler comes with a 360mm radiator and triple 120mm fans. There is RGB lighting on the CPU block which looks cool and can be customized to match the rest of your build. The fans are PWM fans from Noctua, so they work well and do not make noise.
Asus ROG Strix LC 240 RGB
This option is a bit cheaper for mid-range CPUs like the 12600K that do not produce much heat. The 240mm radiator and dual fans should be enough for such a CPU. The included fans come with RGB lighting, and the CPU clock has RGB lighting.
The fans are PWM and can be synced with other fans. All supported fans can be controlled via FanXpert. This is a great all-in-one liquid cooler for Intel 12th-generation CPUs that you can buy if you do not want to go with a full-length 360mm radiator.
Asus ROG Strix LC 240 RGB White Edition
The Asus ROG Strix LC 240 RGB White Edition is similar to the above-mentioned model and has the exact specifications but comes in white. If you are interested in building a white gaming PC, then this is an option that you should look into.
Asus ROG Strix LC 360 RGB
The ASUS ROG Strix LC 360 RGB is the same as the above-mentioned version, but this one comes with a 360mm radiator and triple fans. This will be ideal for something like the 12900K and 12700K.
Asus TUF Gaming LC 240 RGB
Compared to the other CPU coolers on this list, the Asus TUF Gaming LC 240 RGB is a budget-friendly option. It does not come with all the frills and thrills, but it does the job and comes with RGB lighting on the fans and the CPU block. The 240mm variant should be enough for something like the 12700K and 12600K.

Thanks for this info. I have the Asus Rog Ryujin 240 RGB working on a LGA1200. I assume this Ryujin 240 will also work with LGA1700, right? I have everything that came inn the box, so I also assume I need everything already to reinstall in the new LGA 1700. Thanks for confirming
If you already have it for an older CPU then you are going to need a mounting kit. The new ones are going to come with the LGA 1700 mounting kit out of the box. You can ask Asus for the mounting kit. It is most likely going to be free.
I asked them for a Mounting kit and they told me they won’t send one to the US.
I did the same thing with Asus support. Such a joke they told me to take it back and buy a new one! It’s to old to return and ti even told them I would pay
