Unearthly power. Unbeatable performance.
Obsessive attention to detail.
Engineered with intention: Your chassis is the result of detailed precision. The largest available Alienware desktop cavity is outfitted with efficient cable management clamps plus four independent HDD cable clips, graphics brackets and locks to keep your cards securely fastened. Even the wireless antennae housing is optimized for the very best reception and placed at the highest point of the system.
Iconic architecture: The triad design is forged from an internal carbon powder-coated metal skeleton and features solid, staked-in rubber grommets. A large surface area holds an internal, stamped-metal panel with cable management ports and 5 storage bays, all illuminated by internal CPU theater lighting. Additionally, the bottom positioning of the PSU (using modular cables) avoids the obstruction of airflow, while drawing the center of gravity to the bottom of the system.
Triad chassis. Intelligent design.
Your system stays cool when your game is on fire.
Epically efficient: Area-51 is designed with a critical fan attached to the radiator, which cools the liquid that flows from the Split Flow Copper CPU block. It also features Alienware’s quietest pump, using a double ceramic bearing, super durable dark gray nylon tubing and a 2850RPM pump cycle.* Alienware engineers know that cooling is critically important to your system. That’s why even the voltage regulators and chipset include passive heat sinks so you’ll never overheat – even when you’re overclocked.
Ridiculously awesome – inside and out.
Unrivaled PC gaming: Take your gaming performance to the next level with heavy-hitting Intel® Core™ processors, overclockable, liquid-cooled CPU cores, up to 44 PCle 3.0 lanes and support for quad channel memory for gaming, image processing, video editing and other creative tasks.
Graphically superior: With room for dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX or triple AMD Radeon graphics cards, you’ll have professional-grade graphics capability whether you need it or not. Create music, develop games or design models for a 3D printer – the Area-51 lets you easily edit and render high resolution 4k, 12k and VR video and effects.
Access your data faster and for less.
Overclock your expectations
Super-powered and stable: Your machine is built to support two Alienware-defined overclocking modes available in the BIOS and has been tested by our engineers to ensure quality and stability.
Personalize profiles: You get five slots of user-created-profiles, and the ability to modify CPU and RAM or dial in specific MHz, offsets and voltage. Plus a one-time validation process is built-in to ensure stability and ease-of-use.
Multilayer protection: Area-51 overclocking features are engineered with five layers of protection to prevent hardware failure, including pre-populated values to speed up the validation process and real-time monitoring to detect any problems.
