CableMod® WideBeam™ LED Strips

Premier Purveyor of Premium PC Cables Perfects the LED Strip

(January 22, 2016) – With the release of premium CableMod cables just one short year ago, PC enthusiasts can see the difference some innovation and care makes to PC cables. Today, CableMod announces our foray into the world of PC lighting with CableMod WideBeam™ LED Strips – the ultimate PC lighting solution.


CableMod WideBeam LED Strips exhibit the very same care and attention to detail that CableMod brings to PC cables. We’ve rethought virtually every component – from the adhesive and power connector, to the LEDs themselves. The result of all of this is a series of LED strips that truly have no equal – a perfect lighting solution for the discerning PC enthusiast.

The story begins with the specially-designed LEDs used on these LED strips. Dubbed WideBeam™, these LEDs are not only some of the brightest available, but also feature a beam angle that is up to fifty percent wider than conventional LEDs for a more even lighting effect. With WideBeam LEDs, you can be sure that your prized components are lit evenly and beautifully.



Modern PC cases are being made from a wide variety of materials, which means one adhesive doesn’t fit all. To address this, WideBeam LED Strips come in two series – Magnetic and Foam.


Designed for cases made out of steel, the WideBeam Magnetic Series have several rare earth magnets underneath the waterproof resin. These magnets are super strong, but being magnetic, repositioning these strips inside your case or to another system is easily accomplished. Featuring six large magnets in a single 30cm strip, you can be sure of a secure fit.

For users with non-magnetic cases like aluminum, or for those who prefer more permanent adhesion, there’s the WideBeam Foam Series. This series of LED strips feature a specially formulated foam adhesive that is over 200% stronger than the adhesive found on traditional LED strips. Gone are the days were your LED strips start drooping inside your case once the action heats up – WideBeam Foam Series is designed to stay right where you put them.

Part of the reason to install LED strips is to customize your system your way. To that end, CableMod WideBeam LEDs are available not only in a wide variety of colors like red, green, blue, and white, but also in UV – ideal for highlighting your UV reactive components. And for those who want to select from a range of colors, these LED strips also come in RGB, complete with convenient IR receiver and remote control. CableMod RGB LED Strips also come with a special adapter that allows them to work perfectly with ASUS® motherboards that feature an RGB header, like the ROG Maximus VIII Formula.


In the age of modern power supplies, there no reason to stick with outdated connectors. WideBeam LED Strips come with a SATA power connector. Not only easier to connect than the traditional 4-pin Molex connector, this power connector is also more secure to ensure that things don’t go dark because of a loose connection.

Lastly, CableMod WideBeam LED Strips are also fully chainable, which adds outstanding flexibility for linking several LED strips together – perfect for larger cases.


Both the WideBeam Magnetic and WideBeam Foam Series will come in two different lengths (30cm and 60cm), as well as a number of colors and configurations:

Single Color Strips RGB Kits
• Red • 3ocm RGB Kit
• Green   – 1 x 30cm RGB LED Strip
• Blue   – 1 x IR Receiver
• White   – 1 x IR Remote Control
• UV   – 1 x ASUS® Compatibility Adapter
• RGB (Includes ASUS® Compatibility Adapter) • 60cm RGB Kit
  – 1 x 60cm RGB LED Strip
  – 1 x IR Receiver
  – 1 x Remote Control
  – 1 x ASUS® Compatibility Adapter

With two adhesive options, numerous colors and lengths, and our specially-designed WideBeam LEDs, CableMod WideBeam LED Strips are truly LED strips perfected.

      Hi Shoaib – please use the remote control included with the kit to select your desired color. There should be several colored buttons on it, and once pressed, the color should be static. If you have further issues, contact our support team ( for help!

      Hi Andrew. If you’d like to use these as external lighting, you’re going to need an external power supply. Please contact support and let us know which kit you purchased:

    Hi. I need help please. I’ve purchased the magnetic 60cm RGB with RF wireless controller. When I first install the LEDs yesterday, it Works well. Tested all modes and colors, and all perfect. But today I turn on my PC and can’t change anything. It stays on the last color selected yesterday. The battery on the conttroller is ok, the red light on the front of it shines every time I push a button. But nothing occurs. Turning off my PC or resetting doesn’t work.

    What is the heat threshold on these strips? I purchased a competitor’s brand awhile ago and the resin melted turning my white LEDs yellow. Does this resin yellow if it gets to hot?

      Hi Jason. Great question! We use a high-quality resin that does not yellow from the LEDs. Hope that helps!

      Hi – you’ll need to use the included SATA power cable. If you have further issues, please open a support ticket here: CableMod Support

    2 questions:

    I already have 2 of the RGB-strips hooked up to my ASUS AURA, is it possible to chainconnect a UV-strip to keep the on/off function or will I have to keep it on always through the sata-power?

    Can’t really find any information or pictures on what cable-colors that are UV-reactive, I guess it’s green used in the photo?

      Hi! Here are the answers to your questions:

      1. You can’t connect a single color strip (i.e. UV) to an RGB strip. The only way to do it is to use the separate SATA power that comes with the strip.
      2. Currently only our ModMesh sleeving in light blue, light green, red, yellow, orange are UV reactive. Of course, white in both ModMesh and ModFlex will always be UV reactive. 🙂

    This states ASUS AURA, but I was told these will work with the RGB header on the MSI Pro Carbon. Is that true? I’d hate to burn out the header on a guess.

      Hi Ken – yes, our RGB LED strips will work with the MSI Pro Carbon. Just use the included 4 pin Compatibility Adapter and the colors will be correct!

    Are the rgb Asus compatible Led’s addressable or non-addressable?

      Hi Will – our current LEDs are non-addressable. Hope that clears things up!

    Do the strips still work if you cut them shorter or do they have to be the ordered length?

      Hi Kyle – our LED strips can be cut if you like. Please see our FAQ for a picture of the cutting locations: LINK

    Will this work with MSI’s Mystic Light? I’m building a rig with MSI Z270 M7 and want to know if this strip can be directly connected to the RGB header on the motherboard. Thanks!

      Hi Bob! Yes, our WideBeam RGB Strips will also work with MSI’s Mystic Light using the included ASUS Compatibility Adapter. This adapter switches the pins so that the colors are displayed correctly in sync.
