MAINGEAR Announces New R1: RAZER Edition Desktop At RazerCon 2021

First Fully Customizable Chroma-Enabled Gaming Desktop Available Now from MAINGEAR, Designed in Partnership with Razer

Kenilworth, NJ (October 21, 2021) – Today at RazerCon, MAINGEAR — an award-winning PC system integrator of custom gaming desktops, notebooks, and workstations — announced a brand new gaming desktop devised in collaboration with leading global lifestyle gaming brand Razer: the MAINGEAR R1 | RAZER Edition, a fully customizable Chroma RGB compatible gaming PC.

The R1 | RAZER Edition is a blend of the sleek form and vibrant Chroma RGB aesthetic that Razer is known for and the high-performance interiors that MAINGEAR prides itself on. The R1 | RAZER Edition includes Razer’s signature Tomahawk mid-tower ATX chassis, which has dual-side tempered glass, amazing thermals, swivel doors, and beautiful underglow lighting. The R1 | RAZER Edition features the latest graphics options from industry leaders AMD and NVIDIA, and top processors from Intel and AMD. All custom R1 systems include options for the latest graphics cards, up to 128GB of 3600MHz memory, and a full range of ultra-fast Gen4 NVMe SSDs. Razer’s award-winning Chroma RGB lighting ecosystem is built-in, offering a unique library of customizable lighting effects that feature over 16.8 million colors.

“I started MAINGEAR as a gamer with an obsession to build the ultimate gaming PC and with the single goal of making PC gaming better,” said Wallace Santos, MAINGEAR Founder and CEO. “Razer has solved some important problems in PC gaming by creating a strong ecosystem powered by Chroma RGB lighting, and the new R1 brings MAINGEAR and Razer’s visions together to deliver the ultimate, seamless PC gaming experience.”

The R1 | RAZER Edition is available as either a custom build or as one of four pre-configured options. The custom option puts gamers completely in control of their PC’s components and aesthetic, while the pre-configured models feature components hand-selected by MAINGEAR’s team of configuration experts. MAINGEAR will additionally offer the latest Razer PC components — such as the Razer Kunai Chroma Performance Fans, Razer PWM PC Fan Controller, and Razer Hanbo Chroma AIO Liquid Cooler w/ARGB Pump Cap — for selection in R1 | RAZER Edition configurations when available.
