Alienware is celebrating the company's 25th birthday with a new edition of the Aurora desktop gaming PC. Ventilation and cable routing has been optimized. Only a few points are currently known about the installed hardware.
According to the manufacturer, the new case of the Alienware Aurora comes with an open-air design that completely reorganizes the components installed inside. This new floor plan has made it possible for Alienware to increase the free space in the PC by 50 percent with only marginally larger external dimensions. Compared to the still current generation of the Aurora, this results in a cooler and quieter operation. A side effect, according to Alienware, is that players now have more direct access to the components and can thus upgrade the system more easily or make other changes to it.
Optimized cooling with up to 4 × 120 mm
Up to four 120 mm fans are responsible for the fresh and exhaust air of the case in the Aurora, with the CPU being kept in check with an all-in-one water cooling system. With the hitherto unknown basic equipment, two fans are installed in any case, one in the front and one in the rear, the larger configurations have a second 120 mm fan in the front and, depending on the equipment, an additional fan in the lid. For the first time, Alienware is offering a transparent side panel for the left side, so that, among other things, the new dark mainboard with up to eight individually adjustable AlienFX lighting zones and other components can be viewed.
