Lian Li has a brand new RGB energy cable, this time developed for the 12VHPWR connector discovered on most of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs. The brand new cable, the Strimer Plus V2 12VHPWR, is offered for pre-order at the moment, beginning at $49.99. The corporate additionally introduced new followers, too.
There will probably be totally different variants relying on the ability provide you are utilizing. For newer ATX 3.0 PSUs, you will get a 12+4 pin connector on each ends.

This may sound like a number of precautions, however it wasn’t way back that individuals thought these 12VHPWR connectors had been melting of their GPUs. (Nvidia finally stated these 16-pin plugs weren’t being correctly inserted into GPUs.) The Peripheral Part Interconnect Particular Curiosity Group (PCI-SIG) instructed firms to higher take a look at their merchandise to make sure there have been no additional incidents. (If this had been to soften, it will in all probability make for an interesting mild present, that is for positive.)
We have used earlier Strimers in a few of our PC builds, just like the RGBeast.
