WALKING ON THE RAINBOW BRIDGE! LIAN-LI STRIMER RGB EXTENSION KIT REVIEW
Lian-li has released their RGB extension kit on Computex 2018. The ‘Strimer’ kit that everyone can purchase is the 24pin PWR extension kit only, it includes the extension cable and the transparent RGB LED tube add-on kit. The actual product is designed by Lian-li and DER8AUER, it also achieved the D&I Design Awards during Computex. Today, we are going to test this kit that also includes the 8pin PCI-E RGB extension kit, it’s the engineering sample version and also not released in the retail market.
Theoretically, this ES extension kit has no limitation on the number of RGB devices, in the further test, we tried to connect totally to kits together and they light perfect with the controller. Surprisingly, this ES kit also supports 5V 3pin onboard-control by software such as ASUS AURA, and works smoothly with other brands controller such as Coolermaster which contains the standard 5V 3pin RGB header. To be honest, this product is designed for the RGB-Lover but not for everyone, it’s a little bit complecated for installation and the controller that Lian-li provides in their retail package is extremely difficult for people who want to touch the back of their case or user is using their own DK series table case. Compare with the retail package, people may need a remote controller or a 5V 3pin extension cable to support by the onboard-control, and we have to wait for the further update from Lian-li officially.
