Get inside.
The Area-51's three corners are built to support 5 times the system's weight. Pivot the system towards you and gain easy access to the rear ports when connecting or disconnecting cables. There is even a button on the back of the chassis that turns on the rear accessibility lighting to reduce the need of having to use a flashlight.

Carry on.

Transport your ultimate gaming rig anywhere. The rugged handles make the Area-51 more natural to carry. The shape and internal component layout are designed to have a low center of gravity to avoid the system from tipping when being lifted.

Easy access.

The angular shape is designed to have all the I/O ports facing you directly, making connecting a USB device, headphones, or even a media card reader easier than on a traditional rectangular chassis design.

Designed to keep cool.

Internal fans blow fresh ambient air, quietly and directly, onto the graphics cards and the internal cable management enables maximum airflow - satisfying your system's hunger for cooler air and keeping it performing at its peak. The angled design also provides a large space for hot air to escape where a traditional, rectangular chassis only leaves a small space between it and the wall.

Behold the jaw-dropping power of 12K.

Unstoppable graphics capabilities can enable a mind-melting 11520x2160 resolution across triple Ultra HD 4K monitors. The new Area-51 is designed to support up to three full-length double-wide graphics cards, or quad GPU configurations. It's not just the highest-performance gaming experience - it's a breathtaking display you can lose yourself in.
