At long last, Razer is officially getting into the PC components business. Soon, you’ll be able to kit your gaming PC out with Razer hardware, building off the success of the Razer Tomahawk case. Today at RazerCon, the company is announcing its first wave of components, including new case fans and a fan controller, an AIO liquid cooler and a Platinum-rated power supply.
Razer already has a strong foothold in the PC gaming market thanks to its range of peripherals and laptops. Razer began testing the waters in the DIY PC market with its very own Tomahawk case. Now, Razer is expanding its component range to cover several key areas, each certified and tested for extended reliability and to ensure components meet enthusiast level quality standards.
The Razer Hanbo Chroma is an all-in-one liquid cooler available with an addressable RGB pump cap and 240mm or 360mm radiator sizes. Razer teamed up with the experts at Asetek to produce this cooler, which uses an optimised pump intake design for silent operation and improved reliability.
Joining the Hanbo is the Razer Kunai, a new set of Chroma RGB case fans featuring the industry’s latest hydraulic bearing technology. These fans are designed with a thin profile, while the blades are shaped to deliver maximum airflow while maintaining low noise levels. According to Razer, the Kunai fans are capable of producing 70 percent more static pressure compared to competing case fans, while also providing a 26 percent CFM improvement.
The Razer Kunai will be available in 120mm and 140mm sizes and also work with Razer’s new PWM fan controller, which can support up to eight Kunai fans and integrates with Razer Synapse, so you can customise the fan curve to best suit your needs.
The final piece to the puzzle here is the Razer Katana, a new range of 80Plus Platinum rated ATX power supplies with modular cables, premium electrical components and of course, Chroma RGB. These power supplies will be available with wattages between 750W and 1200W, more than enough to power a cutting edge gaming rig. If you need a bit more juice though, then there is also an 80Plus Titanium 1600W model that will also be available.
Speaking on this new expansion into components, Razer CEO, Min-Liang Tan said: “The products we launched today are just the beginning of the many top-of-the-line PC components that we will be bringing to market in the near future. ‘For Gamers. By Gamers’ is at the core of everything we do, and these new components deliver upon that promise with impeccable build quality for top notch desktop gaming performance”.
Razer’s foray into the component market kicks off today with the Razer Kunai fans and fan controller, which are both available for £44.99. In November, the Razer Hanbo AIO liquid coolers will be available for an unspecified price, and the Razer Katana power supplies will be available in early 2022.
