    Aurora Alienfx lighting

    Anybody figured out how to retro the lighting on these systems. Of course the MB has been replaced with a Haswell system C i7 4770, probably back in 2013, since I would have bought a new processor at the time. And of course updated to Win 10. The lights worked for a long time - unable to change...

    Area 51 7500 Rebuild - Lights anyone?

    System is running with new MB - ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger, 32GB, Samsung 840 500GB SSD, 1TB WD HD, GTX 540, and Core i7 6700. I will update/ install games and when it works I'll swap in the GTX 1060 and use as my main system. Happy days. Lights in case work, but of course can't be programmed. Who...

    Area 51 7500 Rebuild - Lights anyone?

    It finally went End of Life - 2007 system died. First Win 10 died after trying to do Anniversary Upgrade. And then I swapped out and tried Linux Mint 18, but that never would work properly and after fussing with it for 2 days I decided that something was fatally flakey. I've had my Skylake ASUS...

    Upgrade / Keep the Lights Working?

    I never really found drivers that work for Windows 7x64 for my unit. There were always install problems with the "Command Center". I'm sure there won't be drivers for Win 10. Like I said, the lighting is still on, except that I have to boot twice for it to turn on after the computer has been off...

    Upgrade / Keep the Lights Working?

    I guess this is a surprise. I have already replaced the MB in an Aurora keeping it's PSU and water cooling. Once I selected a MB of the right size - and it was a standard size, the only problem I had was that the backplate for the Alienware water cooling was bolted to the metal case rather than...

    Upgrade / Keep the Lights Working?

    I have an Area 51 from circa 2007 I guess. It has been great and I love the case, of course. The HDs have been upgraded along the way to a nice SSD system disk and a couple of larger HDs. The Graphics card has been upgraded and I have dual Dell 24" monitors which still work just great. But...

    SSD bracket for Aurora case?

    The IcyDock [links above] is by far the best solution that I've seen. I've used it on 3 systems so far with great results. If your case does not have a direct mount point for a 2.5" drive, then the IcyDock is the way to go. IMHO, wg

    SSD bracket for Aurora case?

    Anybody know a brand / model of an SSD bracket that works well for the Aurora case? Just upgraded my system to Samsung 840 250GB SSD and the brackets I've tried [Nippon both alum and reg] don't work because they either don't have enough holes for the Alienware drive trays, or they hold the...
