    You've edited your post a few times, but still sound arrogant. It is not the first time you've replied to me and came off as a d-bag. Why not troll acer's site or sumtin?

    Thanks for all this Jelly, it's very much appreciated. ASUS obviously got things right with the VMK even though it can be a bit hot. I was probably too critical in the past with regards to the TB3...

    Have you tried installing the latest ATK package from ASUS website and used FN + hotkeys to adjust brightness? Long shot, maybe worth a try.

    I'd say for the most part I do not see too many keyboard warriors around here, but I've only been fairly active since early this year. Tough to escape the trolls nowadays though. Sorry to hear about...

    A user posted a video in another thread of a small heatsink mod he did on the GL502VMK, claiming an apparent 4-5 degree Celsius drop in temperatures on his GPU. I'll post the link to his video here...

    I'd say 5 degrees off the GPU under load is pretty close to a miracle for the effort involved in that mod.

    Is the chip you added that little heatsink to part of the graphics chipset? what exactly is its function?

    So this could mean the JHL6240 TB3 controllers which are said to be 20Gbps might only be in the skylake models of the GL502VM and GL702VM whereas the kaby lake GL502VMK and GL702VMK actually have the...

    With regards to heat, I wonder if removing or just not powering the 1TB HDD (that I believe comes with these models) would have an impact on thermals in the case. Just sticking with SSD.

    Well said, Bran. You're a little more diplomatic than me. I think it is straight up dishonest.

    am I missing something here? I don't expect anything in a GL502VM. You asked me about the GL502VM. I have a new GL702VMK which was advertised with 40GBps TB3. I expected it to have what it was...

    The JHL6240 controller in these laptops is crippled and incapable of the 40GBps advertised by ASUS. This won't bother a lot of people but for folks who had hoped to possibly use an EGPU down the road...
