    Must be joking... 750

    Ive seen complete ALXs go for less than 200. A x58 ALX should only sell for ~450 tops.

    Will these parts fit inside the Alienware Aurora R4 ALX cabinet?

    You should be able to reuse your Alienware aio liquid cooler but im not for certain, other than that everything looks good. I'm not too sure about the air cooler though as I've never really used one in a case like this. You can also re use your 875W Alienware psu. Remember to save a bios key to...

    Motorized Front Panel for Non-ALX

    Ordered the new ALX MIO Board and got it for $35 shipped +tax, hoping it will also solve the stupid issue im having again where the fans go 100% on shut down and run at 100% until you reinstall CC. Really hoping for a permanent solution for this soon but i’ll probably never find one. Other than...

    X51 R2 Help

    yeah thats a decent card for that system, i forgot the pcie slots are mounted vertically so they support bigger cards. i dont know much about CAD since im in the US here so i wont be able to give you good advice on that but here $450 would be ~120 over what Id pay for an x51 r2 in the US.

    X51 R2 Help

    it may support sff gpus internally but your thermals would tank even more and at that point it wouldnt be worth upgrading because of the preformance loss with thermal throttling, plus the difficulty of finding a suitible card, it may be best just to sell the x51 and use the money for a budget...

    X51 R2 Help

    Not too bad, Id say up the ram to 16gb, and then try to find a good deal on an alienware graphics amplifier if your x51 supports it, then just find a decent gpu to pair with it, maybe an rx 580 8gb or 1660s, my rx 480 8gb still spits out high 90s fps on gta 5 max settings as well as ~90 fps on...

    X51 R2 Help

    Any specs? RAM Capacity & Speed? CPU Model? GPU Model? What kind of games do you plan to run? The x51 is notorious for bad thermals under load and making a ton of noise, if you're planning to run AAA games or anything demanding I would just suggest building a desktop on the cheap, a decent...

    Alienware Command Centre - How To Change Colours Of The Lights WITHOUT the original motherboard? (Alienware Area-51 Alx QX9770)

    The only ALX that wouldve come with a QX9770 is a predator 2. That being said, the alienfx software for the predator 2s is going to keep getting older with no future updates and will continue to grow unreliable and may eventually stop functioning. This is all just mights and maybes however. I...

    Aurora R4 - 6 beeps on start-up

    graphics drivers may need to be installed or updated, bios update could possibly help as well. Try a different PCIe slot on the motherboard also if you havent already.

    Motorized Front Panel for Non-ALX

    Off topic but I didnt want to start a new thread yet, This thin contact connector on the right came out of some where on the optical bay cover that holds the batteries for the lights and I have no idea where it came from. Any ideas?

    Alienware Area 51 x58 LED help

    Are you having trouble with a legacy lighting solution out of a predator 2 case or the phobos chassis from dell? They made an x58 version of both, thats why I ask.
