ATI CrossFireX — Dominate any game with an ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform, enhanced by the latest Microsoft® DirectX® technology.
Multi-GPU Support — Add a second graphics card to increase your gaming performance by up to 100 percent while enjoying vivid images and fast transitions. With optional graphics cards, you can power up to four independent digital displays. Stay deep within your game on a main monitor and still keep up with your other tasks.
Complete Immersion — Build your system with some of the best gaming GPUs and still have room for the other essentials of an immersive experience, including crystal-clear sound and optimized networking.
Your Command Center
Alienware™ Command Center provides intuitive, user-friendly access to exclusive applications, including AlienFX™ lighting effects, Alienware thermal controls and AlienFusion power management. Updates and new releases download directly into Command Center, creating an evolving tool for personalizing your system.
AlienFX Lighting — Choose from an array of 20 colors — up to an amazing 25 billion accent lighting color combinations — to customize the effects across eight distinct zones.
All New, Aggressive Design
With the Alienware™ Aurora ALX, you'll be living and breathing in high performance. Alienware's most powerful MicroATX desktop will help you dominate at a LAN event. Use its all-new, motorized vents to manage your thermals and intimidate the competition. And you can personalize the Cosmic Black machine with lighting effects in eight different zones.
Active Venting — This Alienware-exclusive feature helps your system stay cool in the heat of battle. Controlled through Alienware's Command Center, the five mechanical vents are triggered when the chassis reaches high thermal values.
Liquid Cooling — Eliminate distractions with high-performance CPU liquid cooling, which is more than twice as quiet as the standard heatsink and fans on other PCs. The efficient cooling also helps increase component longevity.
Easy Upgrades — Look inside the Alienware Aurora ALX, and you'll see why it's easy to make this desktop your own. You can access many of the core components without any tools for fast upgrades. And the chassis includes five-zone, internal theater lighting — powered by rechargeable batteries for limited time periods when the A/C cord is unplugged.
Front Panel Access — Simply press down on the first louver to connect USB and front audio cables, without needing to reach to the back of the chassis. The ports are articulated to reduce front-door snag when cables are connected so you can avoid unwanted tangling and costly mishaps.
Rear Entry — Use the chassis' last louver, toward the rear of the system, as the handle for opening the case for upgrades and service. The rear of the chassis also includes lighting for added convenience when adding or removing cables.
