    Well folks around here have gotten 4x4GB=16GB of the 1600 MHz Kingston PnP Hyper-X to run, and
    from what I've read people here have had better luck with the corsair vengeance modules Auto-SPD (i.e....

    Yup; batteries have their own internal resistance, so its natural for them to Joule heat like any other circuit while supplying current.

    At quasi-full CPU+GPU load the G74 uses close to 150 Watts already (see my tally of TDPs of G74 parts around here somewhere...), to say nothing of the extra wattage that will be drawn from the power...

    *IF* there is ever another BIOS update for the G74 then I would suspect that it would be AES enabled, if only because my other ASUS laptop (the N53SN) literally just had a new BIOS released not 3...

    Good news on the 230W unit then: that'd be my choice for a parked G74. May even consider this myself: thanks for the link!

    As for the pin, its easy to hack off the ends of the PS and the old 150W...

    First, Watts=VoltsxAmps. If the PS is rated at 200, 300, 500 or even 1000W but has only 19V of "push" it will work 100% fine with any laptop needing 19V. Period. The laptop may...

    Any of those will work fine, though you may want to check about the 230W unit, which is 19.5V (whereas the stock G74 adaptor is 19V). I'm 95% certain the 0.5V extra is probably OK and within the...

    Unless you don't use your G74 at high loads, I would not use a 120W power supply on the G74. A quick survey of G74 component power ratings shows the minimum wattage that the G74 needs at "full...

    Hello fellow Canuck! As someone told me on this forum, better leave room on your "snowmobile" for the G74 when you come back across the border into our frozen homeland! Some stereotypes never die!

    Those aren't 16 GB modules...read the specs carefully: they are 2x8GB modules. I don't think 16GB single modules are on the broad market yet for notebooks.

    Chastity's comment refers only to drives that draw their power from USB2.0 (max 500ma @ 5V = 2.5W for this standard), and not drives that have their own separate power supply.

    That is insane...no die shrinks, all of 23 (yes, thats twenty-three) MHz faster (a whopping 4% "overclock"), and an increase in TDP of 5 Watts! I would think that overclocking the G74's 560M by 4%...
