Alienware Area-51 ALX Gets Racing Fins, Core i7 Processors

The updated Area-51 case design includes an eye-catching louvre cooling system (those wings at the top), internal lighting and a motorised front door. And Alienware says the top-end ALX version of the liquid-cooled rig is the "most powerful" it's created.

Specs on the full-tower go as high as a factory-overclocked 3.86GHz Core i7 975 processor, 12GB of DDR3-1600MHz memory, and dual 1.8GB GeForce GTX 925 graphic cards. Both it, and the Standard Area-51, also have a variety of high-end Blu-ray and RAID hard disk configurations (the case supports six SATA 2 hard disks). Prices start at $US2000.

The redesigned Aurora MicroATX (mid-size) desktops are a little cheaper; they start at $US1200. They're also liquid-cooled systems, and options include a factory-overclocked 3.6GHz Core i7 processor, dual 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphic cards and up to 24GB of DDR-1333Mhz or 12GB of DDR3-1600Mhz RAM.
