To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Dell unveiled an all-new Alienware Aurora gaming computer that features an open-air design. It does this by reorganizing its inner hardware components for more accessibility, better airflow, improved acoustics, and cleaner cable management, all the while increasing internal chassis volume by an incredible 50% without significantly expanding its overall footprint.

Keeping things cool inside a PC tower isn’t always the easiest of tasks, but this Aurora is helped by a new thermal design, which supports up to four 120mm fans and liquid cooling options. With that in mind, Dell wanted to keep form in line with function, so they also offer a optional transparent left-side panel that provides a window for users to peer inside and view the hardware, including a dark new motherboard illuminated by up to eight unique zones of AlienFX customizable lighting. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.

Step into a time portal with us – set the year for October 15, 1996. Until this day, there wasn’t a true computer dedicated to serving PC gamers that existed on the marketplace. Yet, wildly popular titles like Doom (1993), Civilizations II (1996) and Quake (1996) had rallied together a community of game enthusiasts and passionate techies enthralled in what the early days of PC gaming had to offer,” said Vivian Lien, Alienware VP of Gaming.
