My Honest Alienware Aurora R12 Review

This is a fantastic piece of equipment. Yes, it’s expensive if you attempt to put it together with lesser components. However, it is well-built and meets all of the requirements. Under load, the system runs very cool, and with a little tweak, you can even remain cool while mining. There is a premium for the Alienware brand, but you receive benefits like as resale value that you can’t obtain with something you build yourself.
