LEPA NEOllusion CPU Cooler with an extraordinary LED backlighting

For the first time the LEPA NEOllusion CPU Cooler was demonstrated during the Computex 2016 exhibition. And the WOW moment is in its unique backlighting: LEDs are located not on the fan, but on the sides of the construction. Besides, their colour and work mode can be modified with the help of the control unit, which can be attached to the metal framework by magnetically charged legs.
