Alienware Area-51 ALX Overclocked to 1600MHz for High-Performance Gaming

FREMONT, Calif., June 26 / — Corsair a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that the recently relaunched Alienware Area-51(R) ALX high performance gaming platform now includes 4GB of Corsair’s award winning overclockable DOMINATOR DDR3 memory. Using Corsair’s DOMINATOR memory modules, the Alienware Area-51 ALX runs with rock-solid stability at the overclocked memory frequency of 1600 MHz.

“It was important to use DDR3 memory on the new Area-51 ALX because we wanted to use the latest and fastest technology available,” stated Patrick Cooper, Director of Product Planning at Alienware. “Corsairs’ DDR3 DOMINATOR modules allowed us to run 4GB of memory at an amazing speed of 1600MHz.”

The DOMINATOR family of memory represents the ultimate in performance technology engineering from Corsair. DOMINATOR is designed with the highest performing IC overclocking capability and Corsair’s patented DHX cooling. DHX technology is an innovative quad-layer heat sink design that optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation. With DHX Technology, heat is removed via two paths — the leads of the BGA chips into the PCB (conductive cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (convective cooling). This allows DOMINATOR modules to achieve outstanding overclocking performance, while remaining stable and reliable.

“We are very pleased to have our DOMINATOR modules chosen by the engineering team at Alienware,” stated Andy Paul, CEO of Corsair. “Our DDR3 DOMINATOR series is becoming the memory of choice for very high-end gaming computers, such as the Area-51 ALX model, since we can guarantee stable memory operation at very high speeds due to the DHX cooling technology used inside the modules.”
