Would aleinware area 51 r2 be compatible with x299 motherboard ?

Jul 23, 2018
I am looking to upgrade my PC but in order to do that I need a x299 chipset motherboard and am wondering if it would work with the alienware area 51 r2. I have seen a few threads that said that it takes x99, but those were made in 2016 before intels release of 8th gen processors. I also know that the form factor is ATX.

I have an R2 and the R5 with an i9-7900 in it. The interior is similar. You might research power supply connectors. Not sure if the R2 and x299 are connector compatible.
