Will this RGB madness never end? We already have RGB-illuminated RAM, power supplies, and SSDs, but that apparently isn’t enough for Lian Li. The company has announced the Strimer, a 24-pin power supply extension cable that lights up.
It’s absolutely ridiculous, but so very enticing at the same time.
The Strimer offers the unisleeved look, but its RGB lighting can also be customized to match the rest of your rig. It plugs into an addressable RGB header on your motherboard, which will allow you to easily control, customize and configure the lighting using software like ASUS’ Aura Sync and Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion.
It comes with 10 lighting presets that you can select using the built-in controls, so you’ll still have plenty of options to choose from even if you don’t have a compatible motherboard. The cable comes with a PCIe bracket that sits in the rear of your case, and you’ll find the buttons that cycle through the built-in lighting options there.
And because it takes the form of an extension cable, it will work with just about any power supply.
The Strimer cable will retail for around US$45 and be available to buy in mid-July from retailers like Newegg (USA).
In Singapore, local distributor Corbell will bring the RGB-illuminated Strimer cable in by end of July with two variants:- 24-pin main power supply cable and dual 8-pin PCI-E cables that are priced at S$65 and S$49 respectively.
