Gaming Graphics and Expandable Performance
The Aurora enables hardcore graphics options in a compact, yet highly expandable mid-tower desktop chassis. Many gamers demand hardcore graphics and GPU performance to increase 3D quality and HD gaming immersion. For these gamers, it’s all about graphics cards under the hood — and the Aurora delivers.
Giving Gamers More Options
With the Intel® P55 chipset, the Aurora gives you a broad range of dual core and quad core CPU options. It also enables high-end graphics options without needing to invest in the X58 architecture.
A quick guide to the Aurora’s processors
Run this space-saving desktop with the latest dual graphics technologies, and your enemies won't know what hit them. ATI™ CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA® SLI™ graphics options deliver high frame rates at HD resolutions, all while maxing out game settings. Add a second graphics card to experience a whole new level of spectacular performance and lifelike imagery.
ATI CrossFireX - Dominate any game with the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform with Microsoft® DirectX technology.
NVIDIA SLI - Don’t dial back game settings; crank ’em up. With NVIDIA® SLI™ graphics and Microsoft® DirectX® technology, you can experience your digital media like never before.
Multi-GPU Support - With NVIDIA® SLI® technology, you can increase your gaming performance by up to 100%, while enjoying vivid images and fast transitions. With optional dual graphics cards, you can power up to four independent digital displays. Stay deep within your game on a main monitor and still keep up with your other tasks.
Complete Immersion - Build your system with some of the best gaming GPUs and still have room for the other essentials of an immersive experience, including crystal-clear sound and optimized networking.
Alienware™ Command Center provides intuitive, user-friendly access to exclusive applications, including AlienFX™ lighting effects, Alienware thermal controls and AlienFusion power management. Updates and new releases download directly into Command Center, creating an evolving tool for personalizing your system.
AlienFX Lighting — Choose from an array of 20 colours — up to an amazing 160,000 accent lighting colour combinations — to customise the effects across four distinct zones.
The Alienware Aurora is designed for extreme performance from the inside out. Keep your edge with Alienware's most upgradeable MicroATX desktop, and a sturdy, organic design that helps improve airflow and lets you easily get inside for quick upgrades. And you can personalize your machine with your choice of a Cosmic Black or Lunar Shadow chassis.
Liquid Cooling — Eliminate distractions with high-performance CPU liquid cooling, which is more than twice as quiet as the standard heatsink and fans on other PCs. The efficient cooling also increases the reliability of your overclocked* settings.
Easy Upgrades - Look inside the Alienware Aurora, and you'll see why it's easy to make this desktop your own. You can access many of the core components without any tools for fast upgrades and hassle-free service. (Or you can just show them off.)
Front Panel Access - Simply press down on the first louver to connect USB and front audio cables, without needing to reach to the back of the chassis. The ports are articulated to reduce front-door snag when cables are connected, so you can avoid unwanted tangling and costly mishaps.
Rear Entry - Use the chassis's last louver, towards the rear of the system, as the handle for opening the case for upgrades and service. The rear of the chassis also includes lighting for added convenience when adding or removing cables.
Power Supply Cage - Now it’s easy to upgrade your power supply unit. After using the power supply release handle, you can access the PSU cage with a single-cable harness. And avoid the frustration of "bird's nest" cabling.
