Yeah it's impressive how much work goes into making something so terrible. Corporate thinking at it's best...

*Ugly. Check!
*Loud. Check!
*Hot. Check!
*Impossible to repair with off the shelf parts. Check!
*Alienate any person that has a clue about PCs. Check!

Looks like we have a winner team!

Is there any airflow in these cases or do both the GPU and CPU need liquid cooling like previous Alienware PCs

If the previous cases were any indication, liquid cooling shouldn't be an option - it should be part of the base package.

The R13 has liquid cooling as standard but you can upgrade (Cryo-Tech) the liquid cooling system. It’s an option on the R14.

Someone posted on the official Alienware forums that the DDR5 memory has much higher latency than DDR4. I’m looking forward to some benchmarks and to see if there is much difference in the liquid cooling options for the R13’s and overall thermals.
