My first impression of the Alienware x51 R3 desktop is jaw dropping. This is the first 4K gaming beast which changes your way of gaming. The alien logo in the front and adjacent led lighting adds more exotic zeal to the R3. With amplified graphics and advanced Intel Core processors, this machine can handle any high definition PC game very swiftly.

The Cabinet is 13.50-inches tall and 12.50 wide. With a thickness of 3.74-inches, it is going to fit in very smoothly under the desktop screen closet. Dell has used the same traditional design for the Alienware R3 but what distinguishes it from rest of the gaming laptops in the market is the automatic changing LED lights around the cabinet. This not only sets the mood for gaming but also provides a better cinematic effect to the experience. The control panel can be used to change the color combination of the lights. Moreover, you can maximize its space with dual orientation for vertical or horizontal configuration.

A Hi-Speed USB with a super speed USB at the back having transfer rate of 10 Gbps makes it most versatile gaming device on this planet.

Alienware X51 R3 Verdict

Dell X51 desktop is a versatile gaming device which provides a powerful tool to crack high-end games easily. Although Alienware is known for its flagship Alienware 17 R3 and 15 laptops but this device targets the traditional static users at home. Windows 10 operating system opens the gate for advanced Directx 12 which is rarely seen in gaming devices. The liquid cooled cabinet is more of a hype than of actual usability. An extra fan would have solved the problem of heat sinking. In all, you will feel same gaming experience as on the laptop provided you have additional gaming accessories including Dell display panel.
