Hopefully that works.
He kinda went overkill on the PSU tho lol

EDIT

A modular 650 would work just fine for this setup.

I've watched his vids, he's got a bunch on you tube. Think he's been through 5 different gpus. He's got money though.

If you swap out the mobo on the x51 just fyi you have to hook up a psu like he did to power it. Saw someone else swap out one and it wouldn't power bc aftermarket mobo just require more volts or whatever than Dell's.

I think that is overkill, if you want a highly customizable Alienware, just spring for the Aurora and use the money that you would be using on upgrades to pay for a higher end one that has more customization options. I prefer the svelte design of the X51 and if I want a more robust machine I will just get an Aurora.

If u r talking to me then yes heat is ok. I use 3 noctua fans 2 80x80x25 one blowing down on the cpu and one in the back outside as an exhaust fan. I took the heat sink that was wrapped in plastic( which trapped all the heat on the cpu, and took a dremel and removed all the excess plastic so it looks like intels with the fins exposed. It actually a good heat sink cause it has a copper core most aftermarket ones r just aluminum.) and with that it dropped cpu temps 20c during load! The other noctua is where the front intake fan was! So it's supper quiet I hear no fan noise
