This is my first Ailenware Aurora. I have been in technology for over 15 years and typically build my own computers. This time I wanted to save myself the time and get a powerful PC for my flight sims, and FPS Games. When it arrived, I was already impressed, it was packaged like a SERVER! So after setting it up, and getting Windows configured I jumped right in to punishing the CPU, SSD, and Memory (16 GB). Microsoft Flight Sim, X-Plane X, Counter Strike. I set them all to MAX detail and MAX performance. Motioning the CPU, I expect to see it at least spike a few times. NOPE, Never got over 40% usage (and that itself was a spike). It was teasing me to find a way to spike the processor. Much to my surprise running multiple high CPU apps at the same time only got me to 72% of CPU. On a memory note, Never got more than 10 GB in use at any given time. Take it from a technician: You game? You want this! You do multimedia? You need this! Have Questions?

I've had the R4 for almost a month now. I haven't been able to find a game that won't run perfectly at full graphics. I am surprised because I didn't completely deck it out as I am no longer a competitive gamer(just a weekend warrior now :D). I opted for the 2X500gb ssd, single Nvidia 680, 16gb RAM, and the quad core oc'd to 4.1ghz. The one thing I was surprised to find is the lack of heat spreaders on the RAM - temps seem fine even while playing beta crysis 3(which is so sexy, buy it when it comes out). I guess the only thing that may make prospective buyers hesitate is the price. After pricing out a similar system online, it turns out the Aurora R4 was only a few hundred bucks more. I think this is completely worth the piece of mind I get with the warranty. I also think that just the look and feel of the case and exclusivity of Alienware products speaks for itself. This is the first desktop that I have elected to purchase instead of building myself(since 6th grade, anyway), and I could not be happier.

Great PC, the Model is built with percision and perfection. iv'e had mine for 2 years now and the only problem i have had is getting one sooner. The light at the back makes it so easy to re-attach your ports. the cooling is just umbelivable i even have it down to 20%. in the summer it hardly knows what heat is?; on the inside the cables are all held together without force, the parts just slot into place and the way the case is desigend makes the hot air flow away. my room is the warmest in the house and i'm the one who's having no problems. upgrading parts is a pice of cake as you unlock then slide off the side Pannel and hey presto it's the easiest tower to upgrade and replace parts. i now have all my Games on Ultra Graphics, iv'e picked up 24GB of Memory from Aria to upgrade, yet again upgrading is amazing. i would never put this PC down as it's simply one of the best. thoughout the whole villige my Pc always comes up as the Mean machie!

I have never felt compelled to write about a product that I have purchased, however I am extremely happy about my system. I had waited for about 8 years to make my puchase of the Alieanware Aurora R4 system. I compared it to everything that was out there. I almost built my own system even but I just had to have the alienware casing. When I think back through all my systems, this one has made me the happiest. I have owned 3 versions of the XPSs and several custom systems... This is by far my favorit. If you have always looked but never made the leap from air cooled systems to liquide cooled. Then you have no idea of how nice the noise reduction is. This has been the best system yet! No issues from ordering to gaming... everything pluged in and played well together. Incuding the two headsets that never played well together on any of the other systems. No, I dont try and wear the two headsets at the same time. One set is for movies and one set is for the gaming. I am an extremely satisfied customer of the Alienware system!

Pros: Conservative size with the use of the mid-tower profile and elegant design. Nice extras such as AlienFX and the active venting available for the ALX chassis. The standard 875W power supply that allows for dual GPU in SLI/CrossfireX is definitely most welcomed. Cons: While the small size of the tower may be a pro it must be mentioned that this size was achieved by using a micro-ATX Mother Board in lieu of the more popular ATX which limits the amount of PCI slots to only two. Meaning that if a Dual GPU configuration is desired there will not be enough slots available for anything else. Also a huge negative I found (and this is a personal opinion) is the poor cable management, which was routed inside the chassis instead of the outside, behind the motherboard. Multicolored cables where used instead of all black and lack of braided cable sleeving gives the impression of a rushed and unfinished product.

Got to say I like it, I have my Aurora for a little but less than a year, being playing real demanding games on ultra-mode and it never let me down. I had an XPS 420 which was a great machine but after 5 years of use it could not handle my games anymore so I had to change. I listen to many friends that told me that since I am good with hardware I would build my own, but I am not so great I went to see some customer made pc on the net and found what I was looking for, I used those make yourself machine services and ended up with what I wanted except for the price. I went back to Dell and finally (actually after many years of dreaming about it), I went for the Aurora and as I stated at the beginning no complaints so far. I have tried to look around on the Dell website to see what upgrades are available for my machine and despite the fact it says “upgradeable” I could not see any real options.

Receiving the Alienware Aurora R4 was a pleasure and a surprise to the care and details. The care was extraordinary. My first surprise was the overclocking The CPU benched at 3.60 on all my tests (I used to be VP of engineering for an old brand Magitronic)Th rintel [performace showed the overclocking kicks when needed which is a great design that should be explained someplace. The windows performance test clocks the system at 5.6 the fault is in a an extremely slow HD ATA ST3000DM001-1CH1 thatfor what ive read is a OEM model that was discontinued 2 years ago and I am not the only person having the problem. The very cool active venting is totally random as it is the sleep mode. the unit has shut down twice for "thermal reasons" although it is in a very cool room (65o F)The Build part and material breakdown lacks a burn in Benchmark (suspicious). All around an impressive looking product with less than adecuate manners. I'll give Allienware 2 weeks to help me with the problems and take it from there. Funny because my 6 year old Dell XPS4 has not given me 1 second of peoblems ever.

I will say this machine is very powerful... But dell has made a very big mistake here. If you configure in Sli you will have no more room 4 expansion.(PCI SLOTS) Also this machine has only 16 gbs of ram. Apart frm that i think this is a real power house of a machine, & silent as well. Am very happy its silent cause I also use mine for music production in the studio. In this case the extreme processors come very handy. Most people dnt know that music production uses far far more processing power & Ram than gaming, but very little on graphics. I have played all the best games with this machine & still manages not to make so much noise. Very High frame rates with no problems at all. Even after try this thing out with real power sucking music software, its not even pulling a sweat. If ur not looking to Expand but just upgrade parts in the future then this is the machine to get. I love it!!

This is my second Alienware system I've purchased. My first one was the M15x laptop, which is a beast. So I decided to purchase the R4 as my desktop since I've had really good experiences with Alienware. Upon arrival Seeing the box that the system shipped in had me totally excited. The system was easy to setup, that was completed within a few minutes. Right away I was online and playing games with no issues. A lot of people say that Crysis is the benchmark for performance. If your system can run Crysis, it can run anything. Well this Aurora R4 chewed Crysis up and spit it out (Crysis advanced settings were configured to all HIGH settings). As if saying, "Is that all you got?" Amazing System, I've already recommended it to two of my friends and they will be purchasing theirs soon.

Brilliant machine well worth the money, just the design is great the thing never get hot so you can rest assured the hardware isn't being damaged. Being playing Call of duty black ops 2 it has no problem playing it, no latency, graphics are exceptional. Pros Cooling is top class air being drawn into the back of case and liquid cooling cpu. I dont i even think it heats up, i run my hand along the top of the vents its cold air and heat rises and the side panels are perfect no heat she's as cool as a cumcumber i can't believe it coz im used to laptops roasting my legs off. Cons That i didn't buy it sooner. Its a solid gaming machine with parts that you can trust are top notch when coming from dell, you get what you pay for in my view of electronic equipment if you buy the best you are less likely to have to have to replace the product so it tend work out cheaper in the long run.
