The new Aurora R13 with Legend 2.0 case design focuses on component organisation and cable management creating an “open-air” design, which lends itself to improved air flow and acoustics.
The rigs ship with two 120mm fans as standard but support up to four, moving air from the front intake, over the motherboard and performance component, before venting it at the rear. The new case also supports liquid cooling options.
Alienware states that increased internal case volume and more fans spinning slower also improves acoustics, with the brand reporting its new PC is 16% quieter at idle, 9% quieter under load and 15% during overclocking.
The curved case, available in either Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon colors, features a transparent side window, a first for an Alienware Aurora, revealing a new dark motherboard illuminated by “up to eight unique sons of AlienFX customizable lighting.”
Also new is an optional magnetic cable cover that conceals ports and cables at the rear which was designed with esports in mind as athletes’ systems are often seen from the back during broadcasts.
Expect more information on pricing and release date later in the Fall.
