aw-desktop-area-51-r7-threadripper

A new graphical frontier

Re-engineered with purpose

Re-engineered with purpose

Second-gen triad chassis: A revolutionary new second generation triad chassis with retooled swinging cage supports tool-less graphics and expansion cards for the first time ever on an Area-51, extending the life of your system with easy-to-access components. Also added is the PCL-e card door, which eliminates plastic retention with a screw-less rotation door. And by designing the system with a door built from a single, structural panel, internal components always stay secure.

Superior materials: 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.

Access your entire ecosystem: Experience seamless connectivity with 14 USB ports, including four slots on the front panel with Gen 1 ports spanning 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1. The largest available Alienware desktop cavity is also outfitted with efficient cable management clamps plus four independent HDD cable clips, graphics brackets and locks to keep your cards securely fastened.
Your system stays cool when your game is on fire

Your system stays cool when your game is on fire

Don’t just beat the heat. Annihilate it: The new chassis features high-quality cold copper plates and a 120x120 mm radiator to guarantee your system stays cool under pressure.

Epically efficient: Area-51 features the quietest pump, a double ceramic bearing, super durable dark gray nylon tubing and a 2850 RPM pump cycle guaranteed for up to 50,000 hours of use. Voltage regulators and passive heatsink chipsets prevent overheating.
