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. 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.

    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.

        I have an x299 MSI Gaming ACK, will this strip work on that board as well, I noticed the order its flipped for brg to grb which I imagine would just flip the colors? So far it doesn’t light up when I plug it into the header on the mobo. Thanks

          Hi Chris – our LEDs will work on your motherboard. If your LED strip came with the 4-pin ASUS Compatibility Adapter, you’ll need to use it to make sure that the colors sync up correctly. If not, your LED strip should work out of the box, provided it is installed correctly. For further assistance, please contact our support team: LINK

    I just bought an ASUS IX. All I want to do is purchase an ultrawide 60cm purple UV magnetic strip non-RGB.

    1. Do I have to buy a kit to sync it with Aura Sync?
    2. And can I just hook it up to the mobo on one of the 5050 4-pin headers?
    3. If yes to both what is the check out?

    I keep running into RGB and Hybrid options and all I want is the Ultrawide Purple UV mag strip.

      admin February 3, 2017 Reply

      Hi JD – The ASUS AURA header only works with RGB LED strips, and not single color strips like our UV only ones. It won’t work if you connect a single color strip to an AURA header. You can run our single color strips with the included SATA power connector, or you can choose our RGB LEDs to connect to AURA.

      • JD February 3, 2017 Reply

        Thanks for the great response! I’m a little thick, so would you please advise me on the exact spec that I would need to purchase to run the 60mm UV strip that will give me the purple glow? Thanks in advance and love the site!

        O blast! I forgot one more thing. Do you guys produce cables of my color choice/pattern (3 colors) that would run straight from the power supply to the motherboard? Non-extensions in other-words.

          admin February 4, 2017 Reply

          Hi JD – All you’ll need is to get the 60cm UV strip. You can choose either the Foam adhesive version or the magnetic version:


          Both come with their own SATA power cable so all you need to do is hook them up to a free SATA power connector from your PSU and you’re all set.

          We do indeed produce custom PSU cables. You can customize both length and color on our Configurator: CableMod Configurator

          Happy modding!

            Last question. So if I went with the Hybrid rgb uv strip, I assume I could plug that into the 5050 but then the UV may not work?

          • Author
            admin February 8, 2017

            Hi JD – it may not work at all if you plug a Hybrid strip into the 5050 header, and could also cause problems because of the pin out difference between the hybrid LED strips and the AURA header. This is not recommended.

    Hello! So I’m planning to buy two of your 30cm magnetic strips for my case. I would like the stripes to switch off when I turn off the PC can this be done in some simple way? Also I was planning to go with the blue but I have a full white case and gpu so I started to wonder shouldnt white really reflect the uv nicely?

    • Author
      admin February 3, 2017 Reply

      Hi – because our LED strips run off your PSU’s SATA power, they will turn off once your PC is powered off. If you have a full white case, you can also consider getting our UV strips to give the system a nice purple glow. 🙂

    Will these be compatable with the AsRock Taichi boards, since they have Aura lighting on them as well?

      Hi James – they should work there too, if the pin out on the AsRock boards is 12V, G, R, B. If so, you’ll be able to use the included ASUS Compatibility Adapter.

    Hi, I have a rather intriguing question for you. Are the UV Led strips safe for your eyes? I’ve been trying to look this up on the internet and only found one proper response from some electrical engineer and the answer was pretty complex. So it’s a fact that UV light is harmful for your eyes, so what makes these UV led strips safe? Are they lacking power to damage, or is the wave length different or is it just harmful when looking straight to it, not when the case is sitting on the desk while you’re watching the monitor? I’m just really curious how much this has been researched on the developer side cause there is no real information on the internet about UV case lighting and its effects. And I kindly hope you answer with at least some scientific facts and not only convincing “don’t worry, it’s safe”, if that’s the case.

    P.S This is of course an universal question regarding every manufacturers UV led strips, not only yours.

    I was originally getting an Asus crosshair VI hero board for my new ryzen processor. As part of this order, I bought a cablemod rgb light kit with it, but amazon never shipped the crosshair board and I ended up buying instead an Asrock Fatality x370 gaming professional board. Will the light strip work with the Asrock board?

      If you’ve got an ASUS motherboard with an AURA header, then you won’t need the SATA power cable. The LED strip will just draw power from the motherboard with no issues. However, please note that only our WideBeam RGB strips work with ASUS AURA, and not any of the single color or hybrid strips. If you will be controlling the RGB strip with AURA, then you won’t need to buy the kit – just getting the single RGB strips will do!

          Be sure to check the manual for your particular motherboard to make sure that any required BIOS settings are set and that any drivers for the Mystic Light header are installed. You should connect the ASUS Compatibility adapter to the motherboard, and then connect the RGB strip to it. Be sure the pins are connected correctly or this will not work.

    Im do like the idea with the megnets instead of glu! Really nice and i do see i could connect more leds to the chain. If i do buy 1 time the 60 cm version. How much length i could chain to it? 2 meter?

    And i did read 5 years warranty is that correct and whats under this warranty?

    I did read many leds will go burn up because of the heat of the leds and the leds will “break”. Whats about that and what is the temp on full illumination?

      Hi Nick – the included extension cable is meant to help you connect strips together around corners such as in a PC case. To add length, you could either use the included Y-cable, or use the extension cable that should have been included with your ASUS motherboard. We don’t currently offer alternative lengths for the LED extensions, but we are working on this. Stay tuned. 🙂

      Hi – yes, you can control our WideBeam RGB LED Strips using the Aura software on your ASUS motherboard. All you need is the LED extension cable that comes bundled with your motherboard, as well as the ASUS Compatibility Adapter that comes included with our RGB LED strips. Please note that you can’t connect single color strips to your motherboard – only RGB ones. Also, our Hybrid LED strips are not compatible with Aura since they are 5 pin.

    Hi, I have recently purchased a 60 cm rgb magnetic strip with RF kit. Works great with both Asus aura software and it’s standalone contoller.
    1. I’m just wondering if I can use external power adaptor (as opposed to the included SATA connector) to power the LEDs so I can turn it on even when the PC is off? Keep in mind that the the other end of the Y cable is still plugged to the motherboard’s Aura header.
    2. If this is possible, does it mean that I can chain more strips past Asus’ recommended 2 meter limit (even branching them with Y splitter cables) since i’m drawing power from the external adaptor plugged on a wall socket?

However, I need extension cables so (as another poster stated) the LED lights don’t look “tacky” coming right off of the 4 pin headers. Do you have 4 pin (I have 12V,G,R,B) extension cables that can be bought so I can only have the LED lights gong around the inside of my case? I don’t want lights right up to the MB header.
