Alienware X51 Repurpose

by Luke R Posted on: 1/18/2022

Build Description

I started with my old Alienware X51 and after it's motherboard died, I decided to make a Frankenstein from some of its parts.

Favorite Feature

It still uses the same CPU, RAM, and hard drive from my original computer from 2013.
