Are you tired of crawling under your desk, or stretching to press the power button on your case? Alphacool has just the thing for you. The company reveals Powerbutton, this product enables you to position the power button wherever you want.

The finished product is sold on Alphacool's website for 27.79EUR (incl. VAT), you can get it in deep black and chrome editions. Both models feature a push button and a red LED ring. The button is made from aluminium and comes with a 2m long cable that plugs into your motherboard.
With the Alphacool Powerbutton you can finally position your start button as you like, thanks to the 2m long cable. Whether it is to the left or right of your keyboard or in front of your monitor, you will be able to enjoy the freedom you recieve.

When your computer starts up, the power button will light up to give you feedback on the status of your PC.

The cable comes pre-assembled to the power button which is connected directly to your mainboard. At the end of the cable is a Y-splitter to which the start button of the case is connected. So you can start and switch off your computer either via the power button or as per usual via the case.

It's not exactly a new idea, I reviewed a similar product from Sharkoon almost a decade ago. The Alphacool version looks cooler though.
