Triad chassis. Intelligent design. Get inside.
The Area-51's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the system towards you and gain easy access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. There is even a button on the back of the chassis that turns on the rear accessibility lighting to reduce the need of having to use a flashlight.
Forget everything you know.
With unprecedented gaming power and iconic, innovative design, the new Alienware Area-51 is the next evolution of high-performance desktop gaming.
A legacy of excellence takes shape
You demand the best systems on Earth. Ever since our inception, Alienware has strived to deliver incredible gaming performance without sacrifice.
You've never seen anything like the Alienware Area-51. It is more than an iconic design. It's a perfect convergence of power and design beauty. We reimagined this system from the inside out, and built it without compromises. It is an engineering marvel and a completely new experience that performs true to our legacy of excellence.
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 to have all the I/O ports facing you directly, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.
Designed to keep cool.
Internal fans blow fresh ambient air, quietly and directly, onto the graphics cards and the internal cable management enables maximum airflow ? satisfying your system's hunger for cooler air and keeping it performing at its peak. The angled design also provides a large space for hot air to escape where a traditional, rectangular chassis only leaves a small space between it and the wall.
Behold the jaw-dropping power of 12K.
Unstoppable graphics capabilities can enable a mind-melting 11520x2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors. The new Area-51 is designed to support up to three full-length double-wide graphics cards. It?s not just the highest-performance gaming experience ? it?s a breathtaking display you can lose yourself in.
