Razer, the world's leading lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today unveiled the Razer Kunai, Razer Hanbo, Razer Katana, and Razer PWM Fan Controller, a new portfolio of high-performance PC components engineered for enthusiasts to build the ultimate gaming desktop. The new components will include cutting edge hydraulic case fans, all-in-one liquid coolers, a variety of industry leading platinum rated power supplies and controllers for maximum performance and customization.

The new components have been designed to meet the highest reliability standards, while also incorporating simple plug-and-play software that allows easy access to PC thermal information. The new components have been designed to meet the highest reliability standards, while also incorporating simple plug-and-play software that allows easy access to PC thermal information. Additionally, these high-performance products are enabled within Razer Synapse, and are designed with addressable RGB (aRGB) lighting to support an enhanced immersive gaming experience.



"Today, we continue our expansion of the Razer ecosystem into high-performance PC components, and bring Razer excellence into a brand-new category," says Min-Liang Tan, Co-founder and CEO of Razer. "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."

Engineered for Enthusiasts
The introduction of these new PC components marks another milestone for Razer's expansion into more areas within the desktop gaming space. Each product has been engineered with the PC-enthusiast in mind, and carefully integrated into all Razer software to ensure an immersive, easy-to-use experience for end users.

The Razer Kunai are high-performance PC case fans available with the industry's latest hydraulic bearing technology. These cutting-edge fans are designed for maximum airflow performance and are optimized to efficiently cool the PC while offering quieter acoustics. Available in 120-millimeter and 140-millimeter sizes, the fans feature LEDs with a large array of aRGB lighting capabilities to fit the form and style of any gaming PC.

The Razer Hanbo are All-In-One (AIO) liquid coolers available in an addressable RGB pump cap. Born from a technology partnership between Razer and Asetek, the cutting-edge computing cooling solutions provide maximum thermal cooling performance of CPUs and are available in 240-millimeter and 360-millimeter radiator sizes. With an optimized pump intake design for silent operation and improved reliability, the liquid cooler delivers reliable gaming performance while including customizable and addressable RGB lighting. Moving forward, Razer and Asetek will continue to collaborate on all-new AIO cooling technology.

The Razer Katana are Platinum rated ATX power supplies that deliver the power needed with the performance, reliability, and CPU/GPU support gamers desire. These fully modular power supplies feature premium electrical components for ultra-efficient power delivery, capable of providing clean and consistent power for gaming PCs. Available in a variety of wattages from 750 to 1,200 watts in a Platinum rating, and an exclusive 1,600-watt Titanium rated power supply, the full line includes a zero RPM aRGB fan and full Razer Chroma compatibility.

In addition to these new industry leading solutions, Razer will also launch a new Pulse Width Modulator (PWM) Fan Controller designed to support up to eight Razer Kunai fans. The Razer PWM Fan Controller integrates with Razer Synapse software for customizable fan curve control to help improve the airflow and thermal performance of any gaming PC.Razer will begin shipping the new component product lines in the United States this month, with a rollout to the rest of the world beginning later this year.

Leading the High-Performance PC Components Industry
Razer has built a new team to lead this major initiative, beginning with the addition of Richard Hashim as VP of Growth in the Razer Systems Business Unit. Richard Hashim is one of the most experienced senior executives in the high-performance computing industry. Over his career, Hashim has launched many PC component product lines for enthusiasts, DIYers and gamers around the world.

"Razer has a tremendous reputation for designing the world's best gaming laptops and peripherals, and the Razer Synapse and Chroma software platforms are among the most sophisticated and widely used applications with gamers today," says Richard Hashim. "Today, Razer begins bringing truly innovative, game changing technology to the high-performance computing industry. All of our new cutting-edge products will also be designed to seamlessly work with Razer software and truly enhance the immersive gaming experience for the Razer consumer - so stay tuned for more exciting announcements coming soon."

Oh, Razer. I guess you figure there's got to be an enthusiast out there left who likes you, doesn't mind paying your Razer tax, AND can find the parts to build a PC. That lucky unicorn must be prancing around with their pot of gold on the other side of the rainbow.

Benchmark Scores I don't quite know how i managed to get such a top tier PC, I am not rich.
I was anti razer for well over a decade, til i got a second hand razer keyboard and tried synapse.

It's got better features than logitech, and lower resource usage than corsair. It's never crashed on me, ever.
Worst i've had is an issue with the 'forced' logins where it forgot my password (YES there is an offline mode, and it saves your settings)

Will i trust any of this stuff without reviews? Not a chance in hell!

but if that fan controller saves settings internally for static speeds, i can finally ditch my Corsair node pro

Their devices require you to pay for software updates, pass.
It's also ugly as hell, and looks totally unfinished with half a dozen connectors with exposed pins all over the place. How the f*ck does anyone use that molex connector? in the back of a case?

I want devices with generic standards for connectors, with free software, that can save settings internally to run software free. It's not a big ask.

Learned my lesson after I bought Razer Phone 1. That phone was the only phone that wouldn't let me a phone call becoz the phone app kept crashing until they released a firmware update.

Maybe that's their measure against all the PU leather that chafes away over time on gamur product... plastic fantastic.

Honestly if it says gamer gear I'm taking my ten foot pole these days, except for something such as mice... the vast majority is utter overpriced junk and Razer is leading the charge. The fact is though even mice aren't safe, what with the recent 'issue' with Omron switches... Commerce caught on, mass production and max profit is the name of the game, and that's a clear sign to keep the safest possible distance. On to the next new frontier... I reckon office gear, which is held to completely different metrics. But then that was always better already.

I loved there gamepad as I went over from the nostromo to there's when they took nostromo over from Belkin. But all of a sudden one day I could not log on to there software too use my gamepad. Razer tried everything. I hadn't hadn't done any updates so it had to be from there side. As I said loved the product but hate there software. Logitech to me has the best but I'm a noob when it comes to software

Their devices require you to pay for software updates, pass.
Their devices come with an update license and the software is free to use. You just don't get access to newer versions than your license includes.
There is barely any reason to buy a new license unless you really want some specific new feature for the few times in a year where you run the software to adjust your settings.
How the f*ck does anyone use that molex connector?
By plugging in a Molex connector. SATA isn't designed to handle the up to 100W power draw.
I want devices with generic standards for connectors, with free software, that can save settings internally to run software free. It's not a big ask.
Apart from their proprietary ARGB and miniaturized USB connector it ticks all of your requirements.
This device is literally set and forget. After setting it up it you could disconnect the USB and it will keep doing its thing as long as it's supplied with power.
