Available with Windows 10 Home: Gaming is better than ever on Windows 10, with games in 4K, DirectX 12, and streaming your gameplay*.
The new Alienware Area-51 is a marvel of engineering, outfitted with the nonstop performance of Intel® Core™ X-series processor family paired with the best from NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX and AMD Radeon graphics cards in NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire. Killer power, awesome graphics and an up to 10-core Intel® Core™ i9 CPU that’s unlocked for overclocking make this machine the ideal platform for serious gamers and pro streamers who require the best.
Gain entry to the fortress: Your desktop was built for easy access and overall strength and rigidity with a door crafted from a single, structural panel designed to protect internal components from debris and radio interference. The door, crafted with a machine-stamped metal skeleton, houses electronics and AlienFX™ RGB LED lighting, and adds extra protection to help avoid interference with other components.
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.
The Area-51's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the machine to gain easy access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. A button on the back of the chassis turns on the rear accessibility lighting – no flashlight required.
Transport your ultimate gaming rig anywhere. The rugged handles make the Area-51 more natural to carry. The shape and internal component layout are designed to have a low center of gravity to avoid the system from tipping when being lifted.
The angular shape is designed with painstaking attention to detail. Every architectural element serves a specific function and provides the ideal spot for each gaming component. The I/O ports are front and center, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.
Don’t just beat the heat. Annihilate it: The brand new Alienware Advanced Liquid Cooling is a revolutionary cooling solution made with high-quality cold copper plates. Plus, the chassis uses a 120x120x27mm radiator—built large enough to guarantee your system stays cool under pressure.
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.
Your machine includes support for an all-new M.2 class drive enabling PCIe SSD drives into the mix of storage options—the very fastest drives available today. The storage bays support up to five drives of either SSD or HDD. Enjoy the pure speed of solid state and the big storage of hard drives – allowing for quick boot and massive archiving capabilities.
The Ethernet assembly was built by Killer™ Technology. It prioritizes streaming video and gaming packets for the smoothest possible performance when you need it most. It comes fully equipped with 802.11ac – the latest wireless protocol with 2x2 antennae for lightning fast, best-in-class signal and range. Plus, you get dual Killer NIC gigabit Ethernet ports for extra connectivity options.
The power supply, with available 850W and 1500W of modular cabling, will ensure revved-up performance that is impressively reliable and efficient.
Powerhouse performance: The Alienware Area-51 delivers unbeatable performance with Intel® Core™ processors. Choose between an i7 processor or an i9 7920X processor with Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Technology, which directs your critical workloads to your fastest cores. Master insane, intensive megatasking like playing 4K games while following the action on your livestream.
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.
Intel® Optane™ memory is a smart, adaptable system accelerator for your new Intel® Core™ processor-based computer. It provides uncompromising responsiveness for systems with mega storage drives, making everything you do faster, smoother, easier. Everyday tasks are up to twice as responsive with 16GB Intel® Optane™ Memory. Games launch up to 67% faster with 16GB Intel® Optane™ Memory. A hard drive plus 32GB Intel® Optane™ Memory performs up to 21 times faster than just a hard disk drive. The perfect solution for gamers looking for SSD like performance at a fraction of the cost.*
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.
