Right off the bat comes one of my pet peeves: products should have their model number displayed somewhere that doesn't require turning it over/using a flashlight or magnifying glass/crawling inside/partially dismantling it. I'm referring primarily to consumer appliances: blenders, microwaves, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, etc.

My prebuilt from PC Specialist has served me well after a couple of returns because of damage in transit when first receiving the computer that is, now looking for buying a new machine simply because it has become out of date and this time I will be going for an AMD based system either a 5950 or a Threadripper not made my mind up yet.

Yeah can't lie if Alienware's cost that much I don't think anyone would ever buy them. There would be other prebuilts at a cheaper price. They're pretty much like 300-400 dollars more expensive nowadays

Tbh, I feel like I got lucky with mine. Mine was an R7 with an i7-8700K 4.8 GHz (somehow I was able to overclock it to 4.9 GHz), GTX 1080ti, 32GB DDR4, 850W PSU. Got it from Costco for $2000, all Costco products come with a 4 year warranty. So I guess I got a good deal, since this was back before Nvidia RTX or Intel 9th gen existed.

Why is it built like that?!? I Feel Sad. When you opened it and swung the power supply out on that goofy very Dell crap my heart fell, I remember when Alienware was their own company and actually had standards in their manufacturing, they were still overpriced but at least their computers were not built like Dell crap! I am sure the board blew because the airflow was restricted by putting all of the hot components right on top of each other and directly in the way of the air paths.

Pre-built has a huge advantage when it comes to systems outside of gaming though. I needed a small form factor light PC, low profile PSU, with great wifi, tons of USB, windows professional, at least a 6 core CPU and a PCIe slot for my low profile Radeon Pro. I just could not build one that was close to the features I wanted nor the price. Asus had exactly what I needed. It even came with ok'ish keyboard and mouse lol

I used to manage/build the small form factor Dell Optiplex PCs on the Job. This thing looks exactly like one of those in the inside. Complete with a proprietary PSU which is impossible to find. Dell often have custom non ATX pinouts on the motherboard connectors, that's probably why your PSU didn't work.

Thats a r7 aurora, I've been wanting to swap motherboard with a 3rd party msi, asus or anything as they left us with a z370 MB that and no update bios for 9th gen processor. Please make a video of upgrading the motherboard and I assure you, you will break the internet as many of us are stuck with this pc with 8th gen processor and max 2966mhz ram with hit or miss ram brands for compatibility.

It is a Dell. The issue with me is back in the day before they got bought by Dell they competed with Falcon Northwest and the build quality was on point, no love goes into them anymore. My lowly builds blow away Alienware in the modern-day.

If it’s 2 years old how is it not under warranty. Yes you can run into a bad one like any system seller. I’ve owned 8 Alienwares and only 1 ever gave me a problem. I have a 10 year old unit and it still runs great. Yes dell bought Alienware and changed things short term. The support is decent so why you didn’t go back to dell. I would think it’s been overclocked or messed with. And FYI I have that same system runs great. And I have a R11 on the way. Is it cheaper to have someone build you a system sure, but for very little money my towers have years of built in service. And if someone builds you a custom system it’s is no different than buying the Dell, unless you build it yourself. I would send that rig back to Dell, probably cost about 2k so just junk it and mess with it?

I owned about 3 Alienware systems until I built my own finally lol but Alienware isn’t too bad in my opinion buttt I had to move on usually once you open the system and checking if the system has a K or non-K chip usually only the K version have the Alienware liquid cooling aio the non-K doesn’t have it now about the 4 pin cpu power I think that’s with every board I never knew whyyy exactly but yeah as for everything normally else I never liked that they keep using very low wattage psi’s like come on dude I actually had to upgrade the psu because once I upgraded the gpu I had power issues lol thus why I decided to build my own. But again yes I won’t really bash Alienware because there is a market for there pc’s for those who just want a quick stock build with good warranty ( yes I claimed warranty services from them before and they were nice at fixing what needed to be fixed and it wasn’t often at all) but yeah prebuilt pc’s have a spot for those people who just want something and really doesn’t want to dab into building one which wasn’t so bad. I’m glad I built my own
