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:
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.
As I have a computer with nearly no LED on it, I think I will buy it. It will be really great with my NZXT Kraken (the only RGB thing) :)
What a misleading article. The RGB "cable" lays over top of your existing cable. It's just optical wires with LEDs shining down them. This product will not replace your existing cable. It will just add more stuff to the inside of your PC. Check out the Linus Tech Tip video he just released for this product for more details.
Yeah, Neon future.
