Late to the party but I HATE working on Alienware systems, they use proprietary board layouts, and front panel connectors on those motherboards and cases. Which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to troubleshoot and reuse the case. I'm doing the exact same thing as you right now for a client. I'm reusing the CPU/GPU/SSD/HDD but replacing the rest of the components. The client wanted to get away from pre-built systems due to just how annoying it is to get warranty work done in a timely manner. Especially since he'd only had the system for less than 2 years, it's almost like OEM SI's use crap components that they know will only last just until after the warranty expires.

I know people are gonna hate on me but in my opinion some pre builds are good and some non pre builds are good.I’m more of a pre build person since I don’t really know how to build them and scared if I do I’m gonna mess it up somehow and waste money so i would rather pay for double the price lol.

I've told this story sooo many times before, but it totally fits here. I bought an Alienware a couple years ago with that same config, but water cooled and with a gtx 1080. It took 6 days for the pc to report that the water cooler failed, and I figured it was just a fluke and we exchanged the system for the same thing. Same issue, again. This time after just 3 days. I returned it and bought an hp omen lol

When I visited bestbuy for a gaming pc and monitor they totally got lots of money off my parents. They told me to get the Alienware R7 which is fine. But then they recommended me a 4K 60hz monitor for 300$ . I didn’t know anything about computers back then and I could of easily gotten a 1080p or even 2k monitor at 120+ fps

I know basically nothing about computers, so I went and got a pre-built. The specs are Asus prime B450M-A (Motherboard) MSI NVIDIA GTX 1660 ti (GPU) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (CPU) AMD Wraith Heatsink (CPU Cooler) 1TB of M.2 SSD (Storage) 16GB DDR4 (Ram) 550 Watt 80 Plus (Power Supply) Lian Li Lancool II - Black (Case) I got the pc from Ironside Computers. Total time to get the pc from order to arrival was 37 days (Nov. 28th - Jan. 4th)

Bro this is why i always advise my friends against pre built systems, i would rather help them build a custom pc instead of getting one full of OEM crap and if they don't really want a custom pc i recommend a decent laptop instead of a pre built because you can find really good laptops for the price of some of these systems

I’ve had an Alienware before when I didn’t really know what I was doing at first but since My hobby has grown significantly. I’ll never waste money on an Alienware prebuilt piece of crap. Paying for that name instead of the quality of the product.

Wow. This looks awful inside. Cheap cabling, bizarre layout, terrible airflow setup. It's a reminder how poor mass produced desktop PCs from big companies are (cough HP, Dell). I'd trust an eBay PC company before Dell for a desktop after seeing this. Dell's laptop range seems better made. I have a 2080 based Alienware gaming laptop and it works great (albeit loud). I've made a number of upgrades to that and had no problems. Likewise, I have a Dell XPS 13 and it's for a fairly straightforward layout inside. Great video. 👍

Really like this video. As far as prebuilts go, the two places they accel is scalability and warranty. I work in VFX with about a 150-350 person headcount, and at our enterprise level it would be inconceivable to build and support custom builds for every user. However, that cost comes way down when it's just a few. Furthermore, as long as you're willing to pay warranty terms at an enterprise level are very strong where you can get a tech come to you with nearly everything needed to get your system moving again without a need to recruit the services of a third party DEpostr or otherwise. And I say this as an enthusiast who would personally never own a prebuilt desktop on my own. Different use cases have different needs.

You spent way more time on that motherboard than I would have. As soon as I saw that confusing, janky ass power switch setup, I would have junked it on sheer principle.
