Thank you very much. Would you happen to know if AIO replacement coolers are available for the Alienware Aurora R3 (early 2011) i7 2600 875w PSU?

Dell will not have this part in stock. You would have to find a reseller.

Hmm.

Well, an (Asetek made) Alienware cooler for the Aurora-R3, would not directly install in an Area51-R1, because the MIO-Board (and it's daughter boards) are slightly different cable-pin config.

According to my notes, the best liquid-cooler for Aurora-R1, R2, R3, and R4 is: 

Alienware Premium Cooler - DPN:01YGW
