Lian Li Launches STRIMER PLUS V2 ARGB Extension Cables

LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces its new series of ARGB extension cables with the STRIMER PLUS V2. Available for motherboard 24-pin connectors, GPU 8-pin (2x6+2-pin), and GPU triple 8-pin (3x6+2-pin), the STRIMER PLUS V2 offers improved brightness with a new side light diffuser, better flexibility with silicon-wrapped power cables, upgraded compatibility with isolated connectors at the GPU end, and introducing native software control and independent light channel customization with L-Connect 3.

Located along each side of the RGB part of the STRIMER PLUS V2 are two bands of light-diffusion strips, allowing the light effects to shine in more directions and fill the PC with bright RGB. In addition, the 2.1 mm wide top diffuser strips allow for smooth light distribution and maximum brightness. The extension cable part of the STRIMER PLUS V2 is arranged in a single, flat row, making the overall thickness thinner than ever at 8 mm (previously 11 mm). Each 18 gauge power cable is also wrapped in durable silicone. The combination of the new material and single row of power cable makes the STRIMER PLUS V2 more flexible for tighter bends, and slimmer and easier to pass through tight cable grommets.
Compatible with more GPUs
While the original STRIMER PLUS GPU 8-pin and Triple 8-pin are compatible with most GPUs, some users have experienced difficulties with graphics cards that have power connectors further apart.The GPU versions of the STRIMER PLUS V2 address this issue by having each 8-pin end separated, allowing for wide gaps to be covered between each connector.

L-Connect 3 Ready
New with the STRIMER PLUS V2, the controller is now natively recognized by L-Connect 3, the new version of LIAN LI's UNI FAN software which expands its functionalities. L-Connect 3 enables users to quickly change the light effects of the ARGB extension cables without having to reach inside their case. In addition, the software enables users to control each individual light channel of the STRIMER PLUS V2 to create their own mix of light effects (24-pin and GPU 3x 8-pin have 6 channels, GPU 8-pin has 4 channels). For existing STRIMER PLUS owners, a new version of their controller will be sold separately to make their ARGB extension cables compatible with L-Connect 3.

Pricing and Availability
The LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS V2 is available for pre-order starting May 6th, 2022.

Frankly, it's kind of impressive how far along these have come. There's been a number of other imitators, but none have been able to make it look as good as the 2nd gen or this new 3rd gen iteration.

While I personally won't use these, I've seen them on some real nice "space-y builds" that used the "falling stars" or "matrix scrolling" animation to make it look like parts of the PC where speeding through space.

I'll grab some pics of the strimers v1 and v2 i did for a buddy. Too $$$ for my ass right now lol




So on the V2 he set them to do stripey tracer effects, a lot cooler than the still pic but I can't make a gif right now. The V1s are in the original lian li o11 that I modded to fit triple 360 rads with a vertical gpu mount I built, with one radiator being crossflow. He decided he wanted push pull and V2, so he upgraded to the o11 XL! I prefer the original more myself... oh and I took the gpu strimer off and reapplied it to the dual aux 8-pin motherboard power cables since I obfuscated the gpu powers behind the 24pin strimer anyway. Slanted angles were intentionally done, didn't like it being squared up...

At least these are rated to 150C so they wont melt like my XPG's did (and the strimer V1's did, on reddit)

They do look nice, but too expensive to be just pretty extension cables.

who wants to be beautiful must suffer :D




How much do 20 cm extensions cost?
Most hair extensions cost between 500 and 800 euros. If you want to orientate yourself roughly by reference values, the following list can be helpful: 20 cm extensions from 500. - Euro.

I'm the only one
I wouldn't trust them. I got some red/black cables for 24/8pins but took them off was too paranoid of them. Had a set of V1 strimers but the black blocks were imo crappy quality.

I believe when I used them we swapped the psu wire extensions for another set of thicker gauve in white sleeving too

I'd love to have these, but I'd have to get a proper RGB build (stuff that fully works with Signal) along with a good case. These pricing are painful but you might as well take them if you plan on keeping the build for years anyways.
