The PC has traditionally been one of the most open platforms in all of technology. However, given the technical complexities of PC hardware, only the most hardcore enthusiasts have been able to take advantage of this openness to build, customize and continuously upgrade their PC desktop systems. The tremendous promise of the PC has remained underexploited by the vast majority of general consumers for more than 30 years, largely due to the convoluted hardware – knowing what does what, what works with what, and how to connect the pieces.
Each sealed module is entirely self-contained and features active liquid cooling and noise cancelation. With this design, Project Christine’s components can be safely overclocked without voiding warranties.
Anyone who's tried installing a new video card knows how much fuss can go into even that relatively simple process, and Christine aims to cut that out. As such, the traditional motherboard is broken up into a variety of pieces and scattered throughout the middle spine of the tower. We're reticent to go into specs of the reference design, if only because it's just one of many, many builds one could create with Christine. Don't like that LCD screen? Swap it for a power button. Wanna go all digital and cut Blu-ray from your life? That's an option. The pieces of Christine that are set in stone, however, are the tower design and modular approach.
As new PC technology evolves, Project Christine can evolve with it. Need more graphics processing power or storage? Easy – a user can slot-in additional graphics modules and add more storage by either swapping-out the existing storage drives or adding more modules. The modularity of Project Christine makes it perpetually customizable, helping eliminate the need to replace entire systems. Be the first to know about updates.
Project Christine is a revolutionary new concept design that will change the way users view PCs. It will allow any user to build and customize his or her PC in any configuration without any prior technical knowledge. Further, as new upgrades come to the market, the same PC can be easily and quickly upgraded without additional technical assistance and without the fear of incompatibility or obsolescence.
Project Christine’s modular design allows users to easily build their PCs by allowing them to select and install modules on-the-fly, whether it’s a CPU, GPU, or memory and storage configuration. The PCI-Express architecture of Project Christine automatically syncs components. Need more graphics processing power or storage? Easy – a user can slot-in additional graphics modules and add more storage by either swapping-out the existing storage drives or adding more modules. Equally exciting, Project Christine is able to run multiple operating systems that the user may require.
The modularity of Project Christine make it perpetually customizable, offering plug-and-play upgradability as new and improved technology evolves, ostensibly eliminating the need to replace entire systems. Modules connected to the PCI-Express backbone can be added in any order or combination, featuring up to quad-SLI graphics, multiple SSD and RAID storage components, I/O and even power supplies, ensuring maximum flexibility.
The cable-less design of each sealed module is entirely self-contained and features active liquid cooling and noise cancelation, which allows Razer to factory overclock components without voiding warranties, safely and quietly. The system also features a touch-screen LCD display that indicates control and maintenance information.
“Project Christine is a new concept design that will revolutionize the way users view the traditional PC. This is the first gaming system that is able to keep pace with technology and could allow consumers to never buy another PC, or gaming system, again. We have a history of bringing incredibly innovative concept systems to market and it’s fair to say that Project Christine is a very exciting new prospect for future development.
Project Christine enables a wide variety of setups -- from the tri-SLI GPU setup running on the reference model here to integrated processing and graphics on a single chip for less-hardcore users. The idea here is to both combat the waste in the PC world of buying annual hardware refreshes and to push back on massive price spikes for PC gamers. "We're really looking at other models," Tan told us. "Perhaps to say a subscription model of sorts, that we could interchange modules when they come in. Users don't have to worry about a huge bump every time there's new architecture out there."
As you guys can already see this PC will be one for the record books! we are still working on a lot of things but that only means that it will be better for you. Even though it's not done yet some people will be able to get the prototype still. I honestly think we have one of the best gaming teams of this time. My team is so dedicated it makes me happy to even have met them. I'm proud to work with such creative minds because that's what game development is all about. Nobody wants to use something that they've already used a million times, and that's where we come in. Project Christine is unlike any PC you guys have ever used, and we want to prove that to you. So help us out the best that you can and you won't regret it.
All pledges will go into the PC. We want to make this game as great as possible. Once the PC hit the shelves it is estimated that it will make over 56 million dollars! And it will all be because of you guys making it happen for us.
Other places pledges will go is to advertisement to get people ready for the PC when it actually does hit the shelves. We want to make a great impact in the gaming world and with your help that is beyond possible.
These pledges will help out a great deal you guys and bring everything we've worked for to reality so thanks so much for supporting our dreams!

Risks and challenges
There we're so many challenges bringing this PC to the light but when you have a great idea always follow through with it. The biggest challenge we may face even after the PC is successfully funded is being able to put the PC out when it's fully ready and right now we only have the prototype. But it will be here before you know it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
