    Spent 2 grand when i first turned 18 on a Alienware laptop. Downloaded crysis and couldnt even run it on low settings. After 6 months the laptop overheated and fried everything inside the computer. So yeah I never buy prebuilt again

  • Ben Wu

    but can it run crysis?

    Its better that it is heavy and is hard to grip because then it is harder to steal or at least takes longer.

    I have a Area 51 R2, with the Intel I7 5820k six core. It is very true the case design has not changed a bit in 3 years, and your "Pre production" cable management pic sadly is post production too, and while the alienware water cooler is great for i7 CPUs, and maybe ryzen if they make a build with it, you are right, this design is just not feasible for a threadripper build. I do very much like the unique case design (even though it weighs a metric ton). Just that alone is the reason why many folks get a alienware, and if you are unhappy with the options, then you can just throw in a standard motherboard (AlienFX is a pain to setup on a no proprietary board),
