Lian Li has started to sell its new PSU cable featuring addressable RGB lighting. The cable is now available on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean at an introductory price below $40/€40. Going forward, the unit will get a bit more expensive, but will stay below $50/€50.

Announced at Computex last month, the the Lian Li Strimer (pronounced 'Streamer') is a light emitting module featuring RGB LEDs that can be attached to Lian Li’s white PSU cable and create an impression that the wires are glowing. The Strimer has a connector to attach to motherboards that can control addressable RGB lighting and works with all popular motherboards brands as well as their software. Alternatively, the Strimer can be plugged to a special module that features 10 pre-programmed lighting options and can be controlled manually.

Check out a news story from our Computex coverage.

Lian Li’s Strimer module and its white cable are compatible with all ATX PSUs available on the market and the installation procedure does not seem to be too complex.

The Lian Li Strimer is now available from Amazon and Newegg in the US, Caseking in Germany, and OcUK in the UK. For a limited time the product will cost $5/€5/£5 below its MSRP, but after that its price will increase to $45/€45/£40.

    I'm surprised they charged ahead with that mistaken Strimer name. Is it likely they were too close to a product launch to make a last minute correction so they forged ahead with the broken product branding under the assumption that since RGB power cables are a niche item that few if anyone would notice the blunder?

    I mean, what else are they going to call it? Some other random "stream" synonym to be lost in the flood of names?

    Ironically all of the press focus on "Strimer" sounding strange in some markets has made it more rememberable to me at least.

    In English, particularly in the UK, it is one missing letter away from a trademark for a common garden power tool. Reply

    I can't wait to position my factory overclocked RGB inkjet at the edge of my RGB desk so the things I print from it can fall directly into my RGB gaming trashcan! Reply

    That's it! We need to link the lights to the color currently being printed from the printer!

    Seriously though; I already have a GPU with a light that cannot turn off, and it is a somewhat conservitive white color. That alone annoys me. I am sort of dreading my next build, and just hope that the trend starts to reverse. I may pay extra to get parts without RGB lol
    Black is the new Black... we don't need anything else. RGB should only be in my display.

    Bonus if you can convince consumers that "for optimal performance, all datapaths we recommend use of RGB." Reply
