Hey Razer enthusiasts: You'll finally be able to build an
(almost) all-Razer PC now that the company is making its own
all-in-one liquid coolers, power supplies, and fans.
The Razer Hanbo Chroma all-in-one liquid cooler will feature
higher airflow and better cooling than its competitors, Razer
claims, offering up to 70 percent more static pressure and a 26
percent higher cubic feet per minute (CFM) rating. The higher specs
don't necessarily mean louder either. Because of its better
efficiency, Razer officials said the fans can be 21 percent quieter
than the competition. The Hanbo Chroma was designed in conjunction
with Asetek and of course features addressable RGB rings on the
fans, as well as the combo pump and water block. The Hanbo Chroma
will come in both dual-fan 240mm and triple-fan 360mm
For those who get bothered if the company logo doesn't line up
perfectly on the cooler, Razer said the plate on the water block
attaches with magnets so you can adjust it to your hearts
Since addressable RGB is way more convenient when everything
matches, Razer is also introducing the Kunai Chroma fans. The fans
feature RGB hub-rings on not just one but both sides so
people who have to mount the fans in a pull configuration still get
the heavenly glory of RGB. You can control its fan speeds using
Razer's new PC fan controller, which has eight channels and mounts
to your case magnetically.
The last component Razer revealed is a pair of power supplies
under the Katana Chroma flag. The top tier unit is an 80 Plus
Platinum-rated 1,600-watt Katana Chroma, with a 750W Platinum-rated
model also on offer. Both are fully modular and feature an
addressable RGB ring mounted in the PSU's intake.
Why even bother to make a 1,600 watt PSU when most gamers will
never approach that much power consumption? Razer officials said
it's mostly to have a halo product, but they also point to the
trend of skyrocketing power consumption for high-end components in
recent years. The power supplies will also feature intelligent
monitoring for people who like to see how much juice their GeForce
RTX 3090 and 12th-gen Intel or Ryzen 5000 chip is sucking down.
Unfortunately, if you want a Razer PSU, you'll have to wait
until next year as the Katana Chroma won't be released until the
first quarter of 2022. Pricing also wasn't disclosed.
Razer didn't release pricing of its all-in-ones either but they
should at least come out this year. You can get ready though by
stocking up on the Razer Kunai Chroma fans, which are available
today from Razer.com for $45 a piece. The Razer fan controller will
run you $50 and should also pop up on Razer.com today.
