Just Bought the new Aurora R4 had a question about the SLI compability with GTX 590's
Is it possible for it to run SLI? Iam ok with buying an extra power supply, anything for the dual gtx 590's.
I want them really bad, if no, please explain.
Thank You For Your Time:)
We just discussed this, almost exact same thread title. Odd.
Should've done more research before getting out the credit card. If dual 590 is really important to you, then you'll probably have to return the R4, and take the restocking fee hit.
I just called alienware support, told me I would need to buy a 1.1 power supply and I will be good on installing the two gtx 590's. And WILL NOT have any heating problems due to Aurora's r4 advanced chasis.
seems like you got money to burn. If you are smart ull return it and buy an Origin PC. best of the best.

Well I don't know what you guys did, but I just got my Aurora r4 and have gtx 590 working SLI, also installed the new 1. 1 power supply. No heating problems and perfectly working
Can you post a pic of that 1.1kw PSU please? The Aurora PSU has pins on the door cover to power the side led lights. The 1.1kw and 1.2kw PSU's are made for the Area 51 and lack the pins. That is why I would like to see what they sent you. I believe if Dell made a 1.1kw PSU with the door pins on it then they would offer it with the systems which they don't.
My next question would be the heat. How hot does it get? The GTX 590 has a center fan that will exhaust heat directly into the case. A friend of mine removed a GTX 590 from hes Aurora and replaced it with dual GTX 580s just because of this.
