For the last few years, component manufacturers have been adding RGB lighting to everything: memory modules, keyboards, mice, cases, motherboards, video cards, and even PSUs. Lian Li is going one step further and launching power supply extension cables that feature RGB LEDs.
The Strimer is a lighting module that can be hooked up to your motherboard's 24-pin connector or your video card. The Lian Li Strimer is compatible with every PSU, and the company says its mounting mechanism will ensure the cables fit securely within your existing setup.
Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about, here's a rig with a standard 24-pin power connector (on the left), and one featuring Lian Li's Strimer cables:
From Lian Li:
PSU cables are either dull or look messy and becomes a challenge to builders and gamers, becoming a task to manage and keep the cables tidy. Sleeved cables have become a trend and allowed a cleaner, more stylish solution into managing and presenting cables, coupled with cable combs, they made a good option until now. Lian Li is revolutionizing the cable management game with the Strimer cable LED.
The Strimer can also be plugged into an addressable RGB header on your motherboard, giving you the ability to customize the lighting effect via your board's software. If you have an RGB-enabled ASUS board, you can use Aura Sync to control the lighting effects. If your board doesn't have RGB, the Strimer has 10 built-in lighting presets.
Right now, there's no further information on pricing or availability, but the Strimer looks really cool. If you've already invested in RGB-enabled gear, the Lian Li's extension cable is a no-brainer addition.
