Alienware Area 51 R3
Available with Windows 10 Home: Gaming is better than ever on Windows 10, with games in 4K, DirectX 12, and streaming your gameplay*.
Unearthly power. Unbeatable performance.
Play, record, and create simultaneously with the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition Desktop featuring the all-new AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Killer power, triple graphics and our first 16-core CPU make this machine ideal for gamers, creators and megatasking streamers.
Obsessive attention to detail.
Gain entry to the fortress: Both easy-access doors, crafted from a single structural panel, are designed to protect electronics and internals from debris and interference with other components.
Engineered with intention: The largest available Alienware desktop cavity is outfitted with efficient cable management clamps and 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 anchored by the PSU and forged from an internal carbon powder-coated metal skeleton that features solid, staked-in rubber grommets.
Triad chassis. Intelligent design.
Pivot this desktop – built to support five times its weight – for easy access to rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. And with rear accessibility lights at the push of a button, there’s no flashlight necessary.
Rugged handles make it easy to carry this rig with you and avoid tipping because the shape and layout of internal components are designed to have a low center of gravity.
Media management made easy.
I/O ports are front and center, so connecting a USB device, headphones or even a media card reader is convenient, thanks to the angular shape.
Stays cool when your game is on fire.
Don’t just beat the heat. Annihilate it: Alienware Advanced Liquid Cooling is a revolutionary cooling solution made with high-quality cold copper plates and a 120x120x48 mm radiator — the biggest there is.
Epically efficient: A critical fan is attached to the radiator and cools the liquid that flows from the Split Flow Copper CPU block. It also features Alienware’s quietest pump, using a double ceramic bearing, durable nylon tubing and a 2850RPM pump cycle.* Even the voltage regulators and chipset include passive heatsinks so you’ll never overheat – even when you’re overclocked.
Ridiculously awesome – inside and out.
More storage than you need.
With a new M.2 class drive – the very fastest available today – you can add a PCIe SSD drive to your storage options. Five storage bays support up to five drives of SSD or HDD for pure speed and big storage so you can count on quick boot and massive archiving capabilities.
Connect with confidence.
