Triad chassis.
Intelligent design.

The Area-51’s ground-breaking triad-design does more than just turn heads – it turns your PC into a superior gaming machine. Triad is centered on two main design principles: optimized thermal management and best-in-class ergonomics. It features an angled, easily accessible front I/O panel and hassle-free grips that make it simple to pivot your system forward to reach rear ports. Vast and open entryways on each side are designed to provide an easy way for you to perform upgrades, brainstorm new mods, or show off your rig.

Designed to keep cool.

Internal fans blow fresh ambient air, quietly and directly, onto the graphics cards and the internal cable management enables maximum airflow – satisfying your system’s hunger for cooler air and keeping it performing at its peak. The angled design also provides a large space for hot air to escape where a traditional, rectangular chassis only leaves a small space between it and the wall.

Behold the jaw-dropping power of 4K gaming.

Unstoppable graphics capabilities can enable a mind-melting 11520x2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors. The new Area-51 is designed to support up to three full-length double-wide graphics cards, or quad GPU configurations. It’s not just the highest-performance gaming experience – it’s a breathtaking display you can lose yourself in.

All-new. All-powerful.

The Alienware Area-51 ushers in a new era of performance with 6-core and 8-core Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme processor options that come factory overclocked and made possible with the new Intel X99 Express chipset alongside 2133Mhz DDR4 memory — up to 32GB in quad channel. Do insane, intensive multitasking like rendering video or extreme performance 4K gaming at your leisure. Experience a custom balance of solid-state and hard drives, enabling the performance of SSD with the storage capacity of HDD. Plus, 802.11ac – the latest wireless protocol – prioritizes streaming video and gaming, so lag is reduced. And with an impressive array of ports and connectivity options, you can stay in the game no matter where it takes you.
