Water-cooled
Alienware's new Aurora ALX gaming system makes use or a water-cooled system for its four blazing GPUs

Alienware may have been recently bought by Dell Computer, but that isn't stopping them from releasing the latest and greatest in gaming PCs. The company's new Aurora ALX used an AMD Athlon FX-60 processor backed by a liquid chilled Quad-SLI graphics subsystem.

Alienware's Liquid Chilled solution is based on CoolIT Systems' patented MTEC technology. The system ensures that the the GeForce 7900 graphics units are kept cool during extended gaming sessions. The unit is maintenance free so you keep your mind in the game instead of on your equipment.

CoolIT Systems' MTEC technology, used to power Alienware's Liquid Chilled solution, enables even the hottest processors to stay cool,” said CoolIT Systems. “By refrigerating the liquid, MTEC allows heat to be transferred away from the Aurora ALX's four GPUs, opening the door for unlimited graphics performance.

On Dell's side, it sells a system called the XPS 600 Renegade, which is a custom painted quad-SLI computer. Dell's system is not as equipped as the new Aurora ALX -- water cooling is not used, for example. Alienware also claims that its power supply is 25% more efficient than that of others. A fully configured Aurora ALX set us back $14,800 USD.






“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
