Razor shows off Project Christine at CES

CES14 Press Release

Razor LogoOver the past week gaming peripheral and boutique PC builder Razor has been teasing it’s concept of a modular gaming PC, Project Christine. The first images of this system were promoted on Twitter as part of a viral marketing campaign over the weekend. But now Razor has seen fit to reveal Project Christine in all its, “Holy Christ, did they just rip off that awful thing that BMW and Thermaltake made a few years ago” glory.


If you were looking forward to owning a desktop system that looks like a cross between a radiator and a last-gen Mac Pro than it’s time to start stashing away your Bitcoins for Project Christine.

There are three big advantages over traditional PC building that Razor’s Project Christine offers: ease of use, style, and thanks to a neat integrated liquid cooling solution performance.


The modules are swappable and use simple plugin play connectors for easy upgrading with little to no technical knowledge.


Whether you like the styling is up to you, but it certain screams Razor when you look at it.


Each of the modules contains an active liquid cooling solution and noise cancellation which allows them to be simultaneously both quiet and heavily overclocked by default.

Here’s a quick, but surprisingly vapid promo video the company released.

Perhaps the funniest thing about this concept is the integrated control panel screen which is a major call back to the late 2000’s when having a control panel on the front of your gaming PC was all the rage.


Love it, or hate, hate, hate it, Project Christine is certainly something different. Give us your take in the comments or on the forums.S|A
