Alienware (Area-51) (a51R2-3237SLV)
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 (sold separately). 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.
New. Liquid-cooled. Overclocked: The Alienware Area-51 ushers in a new era of performance with Windows 10 and Intel Core i7 Extreme processor that comes factory overclocked and made possible with the new Intel Express chipset and 2133Mhz DDR4 memory. Do insane, intensive multitasking, like rendering video or extreme performance 4K gaming at your leisure.
Alienware Command Center 4.0
AlienFX: Customize your lighting experience with AlienFX across nine independent programmable lighting zones, and with over 20 colors to choose, you can create up to 512 trillion color combos.
AlienAdrenaline: The new AlienAdrenaline performance monitoring app lets you view detailed graphs that tell you real-time details about the CPU, memory, graphics card, and network adapter.
Overclocking controls: Manually tinker with the settings of your CPU to raise performance even beyond the stock settings.
Manual DRAM adjustments: Optimize your memory for maximum performance and ensure that your system runs at peak power for extreme gaming.
Overclocking profile: Break your limits and make the rules with extreme memory settings that can go way beyond standard specifications. Enhance your gaming features and squeeze as much power as possible.
Thermal controls: Alienware’s Thermal Controls allow you to control the thermal and venting behavior of your Area-51. You can also create and save multiple thermal and venting profiles for different usage scenarios.
The Area-51's 3 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.

Top Customer Reviews
I bought an Area 51 desktop with this configuration from The MicroCenter for (their regular price of) $1999.99. It has been absolutely stable – no issues of any kind. I’m not a gamer – just wanted a high-end, fast, reliable, desktop. Configuration overview:

- The instructions don’t mention it, but be sure to remove the shipping screw – a tiny Phillips between the two panel latches at the very top, rear. After that, simply pull up on the left or right latch to remove that side panel.
- Latest model processor, an Intel i7-5820K (6-cores, 15MB Cache, over-clocked up to 3.8 GHz w/ Turbo Boost). The CPU is liquid cooled and has its own mini-radiator – shown on the attached customer image. This model boots from a cold start, ready to go, in about 15 seconds.
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 970 4GB GDDR5 video card. This high-end card is the 8th fastest on the market as of this writing, of thousands made – according to PassMark Software.
- Comes installed with Windows 10 Home 64bit. I’m a big Windows 7 fan, but chose Windows 10 for the claimed better security and because it will be supported at least five years longer than Windows 7:
........................End of Mainstream Support..........End of Extended Support
Windows 7.....January 13, 2015...........................January 14, 2020
Windows 10...October 13, 2020...........................October 14, 2025
- The 850 watt power supply has significantly more capacity than what comes in than most desktops. E.g., the Dell XPS 8900 models I bought have 450 watt power supplies. 850 watts can handle a second (but not a 3rd) GeForce® GTX™ 970 along with another SSD and additional hard drives. You’ll need the 1500 watt power supply for a three video card system.
- The power supply is the modular type, with unused cable sockets for additional devices. However, no spare power cables are included for additional left side components such as another video card or a USB port expansion card. Dell sells additional Area 51 power cables.
- 16GB Quad Channel DDR4 at 2133MHz is very good, but instead of four 4GB cards, Dell should have installed two 8GB cards and left two empty slots. That way, memory upgrades wouldn’t mean discarding one or two 4GB cards.
- Although I wanted a solid state C drive, the 120GB SSD in a machine of this caliber is a dumb choice, capacity and price wise. I.e., as of this writing, Amazon charges $67 for a Samsung 850 EVO 120GB, and only $10 more for the 250GB SSD. I plan on replacing this machine’s C drive with a larger SSD (Samsung includes cloning software with their SSDs) – and use the 120GB SSD as an external backup (clone) for our laptop.
- One reason I selected an Area 51 desktop is the fabulous chassis (case). It’s brilliantly designed with deep-recessed hand grips at each of the three “corners” to carry it. Each side panel pops off with one latch release, and reattaches easily. All user replaceable components are easily accessible and air flow / cooling is top notch. SSDs and hard drives are on the right side of the chassis, physically separated from the heat generating mother-board, GPUs, and power supply on the left side. You can fiddle with “rear” cable connections from the front of the chassis and peering just over the top.
- Within the chassis’ right side, power and SATA cables are included for a second SSD and two more hard drives. Couldn’t be easier to add those...
- This machine is heavy; just over 60 pounds. The shipping box is huge. The chassis is 11" wide, 24" deep, and 22" high. It took two of us to get it to our 2nd floor. It’s about twice as large, volume-wise, as Dell’s 8700 or 8900 models, which are light weight by comparison – any nudge from your foot or knee can slide those. The Area 51 stays put.
- You can customize an Area 51 desktop if ordering from the Dell site (memory, drives, video cards, and much more). If you order an Area 51 with two (or three) video cards, all necessary power & SATA cables are, of course included. This model is an excellent compromise, with it’s fast processor, high end video card, decent memory, and strong power supply.
- The only negative other than the small SSD is charging for the inclusion of an average looking keyboard and mouse. I’d think that most anyone buying a desktop in this price range would already own better ones, or would prefer choosing their favorite from among the thousands on Amazon and elsewhere. Dropping the keyboard and mouse and instead, including a 250+ GB SSD for the same price is a no-brainer.
- Most of my legacy software works fine under Windows 10. But not everything. E.g., Corel WordPerfect (X5) won’t load in Windows 10, so I had to get the newest (X7) version. Another example is Windows Explorer not recognizing lower level folders from a Nikon D7000 camera, requiring another program to be used for that purpose; and – our Canon MF 6700 wasn’t usable since there are no Windows 10 drivers for that printer/scanner. The point is, if you’re new to Windows 10, don’t expect 100% software compatibility with all older hardware/software.
All in all, this is a great PC.
To open the panels on the sides, you have to remove a screw that holds a latch in place (see picture below). In the picture, you can see that I have already removed it, and the latch is over to the left. Next, just lift the lever at the top and it'll pop open the side corresponding to the side of the lever that you lift. This PC runs great after installing Google Chrome, I guess it needed Flash. If you're hooking this thing up to a monitor and you don't have separate speakers, then you'll have to find your way through your sound options to get video/game audio to come through your monitors speakers. If anyone needs help, comment, and I'll walk you through it.
If you want more power down the line, just upgrade/swap out the GPU or whatever it is you want to upgrade. Upgrades couldn't be easier. Well, except upgrading the GPU....There's this one pesky screw that's tucked away in the side of the case...Well, I don't want to get into that. But other than that little screw, upgrading is a breeze. You just pop the latch, take the panel off, and you're there.
If you have the dough and really want this thing, go ahead and pull the trigger. Definitely worth it.
