Not everyone may be able to get access to premium Razer products (for obvious reasons), however, the company is offering you a chance to give your desktop the signature Razer look.
The company is set to release its trademark Chroma Lighting for desktop setups, in a bundle called the Razer Chroma HDK. The bundle will contain two LED strips each with 16 lights, as well as four lighting channels for connections (all of them combined support 64 LEDs).

The LEDs are one of Razer’s signature features in its products, and the company has made sure there is enough customizability for people who purchase these LEDs. Apart from being able to sort and place them in a number of orientations, users will be able to control the lighting effects.
How to Control The Lights
You can control/customize the lighting on the LEDs through Razer’s Synapse 3.0 software, which will release in beta. There’ll even be synchronization with other Razer products, if you own them, via Chroma Studio for a combined effect. Razer is bundling a Molex-to-DC adapter if you choose to place the lighting setup inside a PC, as well as USB-to-DC connections for joining additional LEDs in the future.
The LEDs are supported by up to 40 Razer products, ranging from its laptops to gaming mice and mats. The LEDs support 16.8 million colors. Custom built modes will be available for quickly customizing the operation mode. Razer touts their flexibility as well as additional support for future modifications and simple upgrades as their biggest advantage.
Price and Release Date
Like other Razer products, the Chrome HDK won’t be coming exactly cheap, either. The company will sell the entire kit for $79.99, with additional packs of 2 strips with 16 LEDs coming in at $29.99 each. They will be made available sometime in the third quarter of 2017.
