The refined prototype of the new UNI FAN SL120 INFINITY takes the UNI FAN concept to another level with improved looks, cable management, and compatibility. Here is a list of improvements:

  • Infinity mirrors at the front center and side edges.
  • Slim and bright narrow light grooves along the front edges of the fan.
  • Thinner fan cluster power module relocated to the center of the fan frame, and features two-way cable orientation.
  • Removable fan interlocking key.
  • PWM and ARGB cables combined into a single one.
  • Revised UNI HUB with support for two GALAHAD AIO pump ARGB.

The UNI FAN P28 brings the UNI FAN interlocking concept to a higher level of performance and lower noise, but still has the option of added aRGB as an option.

  • 28mm thick fan made with fluid dynamic bearings, metal-bearing shell, top plated iron shell, and harder build materials, resulting in less vibration and distortion.
  • Smaller power module connection that is embedded into the fan, as well as removable interlocking keys for optimal clearance with radiator fitting.
  • Users have the option to modify the sides of the fan with an aRGB accessory that replaces the aluminum decorative strip of the UNI FAN P28.

Well known for its ability to elevate the RGB factor of any build, the STRIMER PLUS V2 is packed with improvements, including:

  • Silicon-covered power cables for a thinner profile and more flexibility.
  • Upgraded diffuser strip, allowing the lighting effect to also shine through the side, stepping up the “wow” effect.
  • Both GPU versions of the STRIMER PLUS V2 feature separate 6+2pins for better compatibility and easier installation on GPUs where power connectors are further apart.
  • Supported by the latest L-Connect 3 software to individually control each RGB channel on the 24pin, 2x8pin, and 3x8pin.

LIAN LI’s RGB software is now capable of full control of products within LIAN LI’s ecosystem and becomes the one-stop-shop for RGB control.

  • Complete system information, configurable fan profiles according to GPU or CPU temperatures.
  • Individual effects for SL120s, AL120s, SL INFINITY, STRIMER PLUS.
  • Quick sync of effects throughout your system.
  • Auto controller firmware update and software update.
  • Customizable speed profile names, cluster names, temperature settings, and languages.
