I can't always reply to PM's, if you need extra assistance visit:
It would be nice if you could use AlienFX to set color cycles or pulsating single colors instead of just 1 static color.
Ideally, it would also be nice to have the Alien head on the X51 change color depending on the temperature, going from static green to yellow to pulsating red when either the CPU or GPU reach a high enough temp.
Or have the whole system cycle colors all the time like when you load up Battlefield 3, which seems to ironically know how to do something the Alienware Software doesn't know how to do.
