LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces its new line of ARGB extension cables with the STRIMER PLUS V2. Available for motherboard 24-pin connectors, GPU 8-pin (2×6+2-pin), and GPU triple 8-pin (3×6+2-pin), the STRIMER PLUS V2 offers enhanced brightness with a new sidelight diffuser , better flexibility with silicon-wrapped power cables, improved compatibility with insulated connectors at the GPU end, and introduction of native software control and independent light channel adjustment with L-Connect 3.
On either side of the RGB section of the STRIMER PLUS V2, there are two bands of light diffusion strips, which allow the lighting effects to shine in more directions and fill the PC with bright RGB. In addition, the 2.1 mm wide diffuser strips on the top ensure smooth light distribution and maximum brightness. The extension cable section of the STRIMER PLUS V2 is arranged in a single, flat row, making the overall thickness by 8mm (previously 11mm) thinner than ever. Each 18 gauge power cable is also wrapped in durable silicone. The combination of the new material and a single row power cable makes the STRIMER PLUS V2 more flexible for tighter turns, and slimmer and easier to pass through tight cable entries.
Compatible with more GPUs
While the original STRIMER PLUS GPU 8-pin and Triple 8-pin are compatible with most GPUs, some users have encountered issues with graphics cards that have power connectors further apart. The GPU versions of the STRIMER PLUS V2 solve this problem by separating each 8-pin end, allowing wide gaps between each connector to be covered.
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 that extends its functionalities. With L-Connect 3, users can quickly change the lighting effects of the ARGB extension cables without reaching into their suitcase. In addition, the software allows users to control each individual light channel of the STRIMER PLUS V2 to create their own mix of lighting 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.

The LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS V2 will be available for pre-order from May 6, 2022.
