    Well, there are some of us that own a X51. No need to leave us hanging, as they say.
    EDIT: Forgot the "Desktop" in the title. Oops.

    Oh man, I was muti-tasking and forgot. So, thank you for creating our X51 Owner's Lounge for us. I will make it a sticky.

    I'd love to see some X51 Owner's showing off my dual 330W AC adapter mod and some other things like aftermarket water cooling. I know they are out there. Here is a great place to show them off.

    I got two I am putting back together from parts. One is a non-alienware motherboard. The second one is still undecided. I have two motherboards but I am starting to think they are dead.

    X51 it s an awesome pc.

    in past it had more compromise, but now u can use gtx 970 with 330w psu without mods, and i think it s the best itx gaming pc in the world ATM

    What chipset does the X51 R2 have? Does it allow overclocking with an X or K CPU?

    Hi!

    The old X51 ---> H87 chipset for sure

    New X51 ----> Z87 chipset (never saw one in real so i dunno if it s true)


    socket 1150/1155 are low level sockets (only dual/quad core cpus) and there are no X (Extreme Edition) cpus for low sockets (X are only for hi level sockets: 1366 (old), 2011 or 2011-v3 , with x79 x99 chipsets)

    sadly i havent got an aw x51 and i dunno if the z87 chipset is real. It could be cool to oc 4790k and 4770k on x51 (but temps are an issue in this space)


    i hope to find someone with this new z87 x51 to find it out

    :)

    H87 chipset. Not sure on overclocking, going to have to let an actual owner answer that one. :p
