Hi All,

New G75VX owner here, been playing with my new laptop since Friday. So far so good and no issues except the grainy screen which from reading is something i just need to live with?

The laptop is a refurbished unit but when i opened it looks to be un-used, there are still stickers on the trackpad, the webcam and came with the bag/mouse. It is also CLEAN no marks, so i am really happy about that.

Anyways do you guys have any suggestions on things i should do right away?

Specs below:

Asus G75VX-DH72
Intel Core i7 3630QM
16GB RAM
256GB SSD + 500GB HD
17.3in FHD 1920x1080 Matte Display
GeForce GTX 670MX
Blu-Ray
Win8

Thanks,

Hi,

We might want to see what others think, but you already have an SSD drive, so if you're happy with the performance, there shouldn't be too much more you need to worry about.

You may not need to be concerned about this right away while you are still under warranty, but consider backing up the original ASUS factory image to a 16Gb or larger usb drive with the ASUS Backtracker software (doesn't save any data or anything else if you would rather use other software to back up your entire hard drive image) that you can download from this page (search 'backtracker') http://www.service.asus.com/#!downloads/c1wax in case you ever need it later.
Not sure if you can test the backup on the 500Gb hard drive (physically remove the SSD drive if you can do this safely?), but it's an idea before you start putting too much stuff on it.

Well Hwinfo64 (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/hwinfo64.html) will show you all the details of your NB including Temps Loads and Fan speeds for your CPU And GPU.
You should download Furmark (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/furmark.html) and Stress Test your GPU Full Screen 1080 res 15 minute burn in test, you GPU should stay in the low 80's

You can use RealBench (http://rog.asus.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?156-ROG-RealBench) to benchmark and stress test your CPU. again you CPU should stay in the low 80's if not you may have problems in the future with the pasting of your CPU and GPU this is something you need to know before your warranty runs out!!

Ok i did the stress tests as per your posts and this is what i got.

Furmark
7771 frames, 8 FPS, 62C

Running RealBench stress test 1 run

It reached 89 C then the fan rammped up and it fell to under 76ish C

Does everything look good?

Those numbers look really good, your minimum temps are awesome.
The maximum temps are not bad, average temps a great also.

Just keep in mind, and this is very important, stress tests are not meant to be run often! (can damage hardware)
