Alienware shows off its upcoming Area-51, a new desktop PC with a hexagonal design!
According to the firm, one of the benefits of this design is that it allows for improved thermal flow in space-constricted areas. The triad enables decent airflow even when the case is located right next to a wall.
Expected to be available in October, this system will feature the Intel Haswell-E series with factory-overclocked and watercooled Core i7 processors, quad-channel DDR4-2133, up to four graphics cards, up to a 1500W PSU, WiFi + Bluetooth and up to five storage devices.
The Alienware Area-51 returns... with some improvements. This chassis was rebuilt from the ground up to deliver a bold, striking design that offers improved functionality, blistering performance, and plenty of space and options for upgrades.
Our decision to move towards this triad design improved thermal flow through the system and allows for better ergonomics and move space for upgrades. The change in position of the front ports and rear IO panel also allows for easier access from any position.
