I have a alienware area 51 r2 with 64gb ram, zotac rtx 2080 blower, 850 psu and 5tb of storage with i7 5820k cpu. I want to upgrade my cpu to a i9 9900k do i need to upgrade my motherboard. If i do which one do you guys recommend or could i get one from dell to still be able to access the led lights side and front. I also read that the cables done fit so i will need to get adapters. Or any information i should know thank you

You will need a LGA 1151 socket motherboard, preferably a z390 board. Not sure what form factor will fit the area 51 r2 (atx, micro-atx, itx etc...).

BTW, this is X51 PC forum which is different than the area 51. If its like the x51, its a proprietary motherboard and not replaceable with off the shelf motherboards. not sure if the area 51 is propriatery, but wouldn't be surprised..it is a "Dell" after all.
