Designed to keep cool: Inspired by the thermal ergonomics of the Area-51, the Aurora provides optimal air intake on the front and right panels and an exhaust fan on top for maximum airflow and cooling of internal components.
Packed with power: The Aurora is Alienware’s smallest mid tower gaming desktop ever to offer both optional dual-graphics and optional liquid cooling.
Pro-level gaming starts here.
Alienware machines also put the power behind competitive gaming tournaments, like ELEAGUE and ESL, because the best gamers in the world expect gear engineered with the unmatched performance and design only Alienware can deliver.
Engineered for the future.
Iconic & quiet design: Customizable AlienFX lighting gives the Aurora a distinct, dynamic look and its whisper-quiet operation allows you to get lost in the game without noisy distractions.
