Computex Day Three: HYTE and Lian Li 

We’re back! Yes, it’s time for day three of our Computex coverage here on the Overclockers UK Blog. There’s once again been a heck of a lot going on here in Taipei, so in today’s update, we’re taking a look at some of the coolest stuff we’ve found.  

Lian Li 

Showcasing new cases, PSUs and even wireless RGB Lian Li have brought their A-game to this year’s Computex.  

Wireless RGB?! 

Lian Li might have just fixed the worst part about RGB forever! There’s no doubt about it RGB is the coolest part of any modern gaming PC (I’m willing to fight on this matter), and it adds at least 20% more performance to your rig. However, if you’re anything like me and have three different brands of RGB products, the back of your PC case is filled with way too many RGB devices.  

Those annoying RGB hubs can count their days thanks to Lian Li’s new wireless controller for their PC case accessories. Set to launch alongside the upcoming UNI Fan SL V3 and STRIMER Plus V3, the USB dongle can connect to your Lian Li components wirelessly, removing the need for additional cables or boxes.

HYTE 

The coolest kid on the block, at least if you ask me. HYTE are up to their usual tricks this year and showing off some awesome cases, coolers, RGB, and upgrades.  

Cooling 

Earlier this year, when HYTE unveiled the THICC Q60 AIO cooler, we were blown away by the performance, style, and sheer amount of RGB they managed to pack into it. Hearing the cries of HYTE simps like yours truly for a larger premium variant and a stripped-down, more cost-effective version, HYTE are showcasing the Q80 Trio and P60.  

THICC Q80 Trio 

HYTE are referring to the Q80 as “The Highest Performing Cooler Ever Made” with a 360mm long, 52mm THICC Ginormous Heat Exchanger designed to absorb more watts than any other liquid cooler. This Thicc boi is also kitted out with two class-leading Dual Harmonic Pumps that effortlessly chill even the hottest CPUs. There’s even a 2nd generation copper cold plate with 50% higher fin density and upgraded liquid flow paths to drop temps by up to 2°C more! 

Beyond the sheer cooling performance of the Thicc Q80 Trio, HYTE has utilised the exceptional design choices from the original Q60 while introducing an entirely black variant, perfect for more subtle builds. The fun doesn’t stop there, either! This raid boss of liquid coolers features an HD 60Hz 5” Ultra slim IPS Display with a 42-Pixel qRGB Array on a Double-Hinged Floating Spout with 180 degrees of adjustable swivel. 

THICC P60 Duo 

Finally, the gods over at HYTE have answered our prayers and announced a more subtle AIO that still boasts the same exceptional performance as the THICC Q60 at a more affordable price. Following on from the Q80, the P60 utilises the new THICC FP12 DUO fan design with a refreshed omnidirectional aesthetic, integrating fans into a single frame.  

When it comes to RGB, HYTE isn’t skimping here either! Innovative projector lenses capture the scattered light from the qRGB LEDs, and focus them into a uniform beam of mesmerising colour to illuminate your surrounding PC components. What’s more, with Nexus Link, you can combine both your cooling and RGB signals along a single cable. Daisy chain up to 18 devices, including the THICC P60 Duo, across a single Type-C, or double that to 36 when using both Type-C and Type-M interfaces. 

THICC FP12 Duo & Trio 

It’s getting real Thicc in here. As if HYTE’s awesome THICC FP12 fans weren’t already cool enough, at this year’s event they’re showcasing an updated design with serious performance.  

Built with Omnidirectional aesthetics to provide uninterrupted visuals without sacrificing the exceptional 32mm THICC performance, we’re ready for the Duo and Trio! The efficient design makes for an easy build, while fiberglass-reinforced liquid crystal polymer blades silently obliterate heat with monstrous 105.8 CFM airflow and 8.14 mm-H2O static pressure. What’s more, included thermal and positioning sensors allow for smart system-wide cooling control and custom curves for each individual fan using the HYTE Nexus software.  

Milky Y70’s – Spilt milk has never looked so good 

Hades, help me. My wallet is already empty! After disrupting the entire PC case industry with their fantastic Y60 before launching the incredible Y70, a case that features a corner screen, they’re back at it again. Fed up with boring cases? Well, HYTE has you covered.  

The Milky Y70’s feature soft and creamy colours.  Available in Strawberry Milk, Blueberry Milk, and Taro Milk.  

Time for an upgrade? 

If you’re thinking about levelling up your new milky Y70 PC case, then there’s no better choice than the Y70 touch Infinite Display. Last year, when HYTE launched the Y70 Touch, they exhausted the global supply of 1100 x 3840 displays thanks to the sheer popularity of the chassis.  

Available in the 2nd generation Y70 Touch PC case and alone as an upgrade for your Y70, the new Y70 Touch Infinite Display, features a sharp 688 x 2560 (2.5K) resolution (183 PPI) 60Hz screen with a 50% faster pixel response time. What’s more, these screens boast a 25% higher contrast ratio, providing deeper blacks, and brighter whites. And with a wider viewing angle of 89-degrees, you can enjoy your display from almost any direction.
