Re: I have Aurora R7 how does one tell if its liquid cooled?

There power supply is fitted in a hinged metal cage - there are two tabs that lock it in place - there are little padlocks with arrows that show which way the tabs are to be moved to lock/unlock.

Download the manual if in doubt.  The cage will swing out of the ways -see video below.

Re: I have Aurora R7 how does one tell if its liquid cooled?

I do see a radiator through the top of PC What is a AIO closed looped cooler? assume its the water cooled option I selected with the PC. I haven't opened the case but AWCC says CPU pump running.

Re: I have Aurora R7 how does one tell if its liquid cooled?

Can you please tell me where in the AWCC it would say "CPU Pump Running"?

I don't see it anywhere, so still not sure if my computer has one, or if I'm just not seeing it in AWCC

Thanks for your time and help

This is what it should look like.  You may need to install bios version 1.0.17 if you have a liquid cooled CPU and all you see is CPU fan running at 100%.

AIO stands for 'All in one'.  It just means that it's a closed loop (you can't refill it as there's no separate reservoir) system that includes a radiator and an Asetak-type cooling block with a pump built in.  In our case, it also includes a fan.  Some 3rd party AIO's can be purchased with or without fans.  All will need a fan however.

Re: I have Aurora R7 how does one tell if its liquid cooled?

Hey thanks a lot for posting that Amstel, I really appreciate it.

 

How do you get to the "Manage Thermal Systems" though? I don't see it anywhere,

 

Can you (or someone) please explain to me exactly how to get where I Can see "CPU PUMp running" from the moment you open AWCC?

Also, how do you update the BIOS?

 

Thank you

Re: I have Aurora R7 how does one tell if its liquid cooled?

Manage thermal systems is located in the application called Alienware Command Center. 

As for BIOS updates; you just download it and either install it from Windows or from a DOS command line. Click on the following link for more information:

If Command Center is opening on AlienFX section, click Thermal Controls button near the bottom.
