09-18-2013, 07:00 AM
==================ENGLISH (sorry for my faults)=====================
I wanna purchase an Asus ROG G75VW. I found the model T1466h in a "shop" called Boulanger, in France.
Link : http://www.boulanger.fr/portable_asus_g75vw-t1466h/p_70360_620966.htm

I want to know, because there's an empty HDD slot, which SSD should I install on the computer ? And if I open the laptop to put my SSD, will the warranty break ?

Can you advice me on the choice of a SSD to put in this computer ?
And I want to add some RAM too, up to 16Go, is it a good choice ? And which sort of RAM should I add ?

Thanks for reading, and for answering if you will, and sorry again for my english sentences, I am french.

=====================FRANCAIS===================== ============
je souhaiterais acheter un ASUS ROG G75VW. J'ai trouvé le modèle t1466h chez Boulanger, je vous donne le lien du produit:

J'aimerais savoir, étant donné qu'il y a un emplacement de disque dur de libre, quel sorte de SSD devrais-je installer sur cet ordinateur ? Et, si j'ouvre l'ordinateur pour y insérer mon SSD, la garantie va-t-elle sauter ?

Pourriez-vous me donner des conseils sur le choix d'un SSD à mettre sur cet ordinateur ?
Et je souhaiterais rajouter de la mémoire RAM également, jusqu'à 16Go, est-ce un bon choix ? Et quelle sorte de RAM dois-je rajouter ? au niveau de la marque, CORSAIR RAM ?

Merci pour avoir lu ma demande d'aide, et de me répondre si vous le pouvez.

Well it seems that Samsung 840 pro seems to be the top dog presently. Any 2.5" 9mm or thinner will work. See this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=) on how to accomplish the install. This thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?14583-Upgrading-the-G75VW&country=&status=) will show you the physical way to do it.
on your ram you might install Hwinfo64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php), it will give you all the details of your present ram that you will need to match up with.

If I open the laptop to put my SSD, the Constructor's Warranty (1year) will be break ? will be unable ? Will I Lose it ?

You will not lose your warranty by installing an SSD. :)

Thanks SHADO for your answer :)
ASUS warranty accept that a client open the slot to put a SSD (And RAM too ^^) so, the Technician I met this midday told me the contrary, maybe to make me buying their Technical Services ? :-)

Maybe the ASUS G75VW doesn't need SSD ? Is it faster enough or adding SSD is a good solution ?
Thanks :)

Well you can only access the 2 exposed RAM Slots. Any most likely you will all ready have all 4 slots filled with 4 GB X 4 = 16GB?
Yes putting in a SSD will amaze you this is one of the most significant upgrades in many years, Boot times are 10 to 20 Seconds depending on how much crap you have loading. Mine boot from pressing the On button to having cursor control in windows 26 seconds I'm loading a lot of crap, Gadgets and software.
Did I mention it seems that 256 GB seems to be the sweet spot for SSD Size. With windows, games and software that can use the extra speed loaded on that SSD I'm still at less than 50% filled.

The configuration in the G75VW-T1466H is 6Gb RAM, extendable to 16Gb, i have so 2 slots empty, but I don't know if the 2 slots filled are the accessible ones or not :s
And sure I will install all the games/software loaded at the shutting ON on the SSD, I will take the 256Gb sized by 2,5inches, Samsung 840 series

So i have to verify with the seller if the 2 slots filled are accessibles ones or not..hmm.. I have to check it out !!

Thank you for your answer and for the help you are giving me !

As to your RAM Set up 6 GB doesn't sound right, seem to me that they come in 2 GB and 4 GB So you should have either 4, 8, 12 or 16 GB, I Could be wrong but I don't remember seeing any3GB chips?
That Samsung 840 PRO, there are both 840 and 840 Pro, the Pro is guaranty for 5 years

Well as soon as you get your new NB, I would suggest before you change anything that thoroughly test it out. Run some burn in software to assure yourself that your CPU And GPU have good pasting!! Furmark (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/furmark.html) is great for GPU Stressing, Burn in test (http://www.passmark.com/download/bit_download.htm)is good for CPU stressing.
I would advise you to install hwinfo64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php), with that you can see exactly how your Ram is configured, you will be able to log your temps and Fan speeds while stressing. And information on all your other hardware and settings will be available to you all in one place.
Further test your Wlan, Lan, USB 3.0 any other hardware you use. Very important to make sure everything is working before starting to upgrade!!!
Download Asus Backtracker (http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&s=480&m=ASUS Backtracker&os=&hashedid=n/a) and create a restore media you'll need a 16 GB usb thumb drive. this will allow you to restore your NB to factory condition should thing go wrong during the upgrade. In Fact some have used the Backtracker to restore to a New SSD!! Personal I would Clean install but that my preference.
See this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&highlight=Control+Home) for how to clean install, Also you will find notes on what drivers to update and what order to update them.
If you clean install I recommend that you during window set up deselect Auto update. You don't want windows updating until you have the latest Chipset, IRST, driver installed. Another thing to think about it 8.1 is coming out in a couple of weeks if your clean installing you might want to use that ISO to install?
Once you have windows installed on your new SSD test again test test if all is working good then install software and games.
