Hello ROG owner's. I've recently became one. Bought the GL551JW-CN086H. It comes with all specs of JW-DS74 except the GTX960 with 4GB.
I would like to know if the Msata module that came pre-installed . Kingston 128GB MSATA Half-size. Is just cache or can I use it for storage too. I can't find any reference to it on Bios neither with any kind software.
Thank you all

I really need a answer to know if I need to replace this laptop since it is just few days old.

128 GB would be overkill for cache. No, that drive is intended as a mass storage device for your OS.

Thank you for your answer. Already replaced the notebook with a new one. Seems like I had a defective one.... Now I have the ssd working as intended.
