    G703GI upgrade from 16Gb to 64Gb

    I wonder how to upgrade RAM on G703GI from 16Gb to 64Gb. There are only two memory slots under the bottom panel. Where are the other two? Do I need to completely remove the motherboard to get there o_0 ?

    First you will need to have four 16GB sticks of memory. You will have to void the warranty and lift the motherboard enough to place two sticks onto the motherboards' underside. The remaining sticks can go in the motherboard slots that can be located by simply removing the bottom case access door.

    It's what I did with my G752VSK, took about 30 minutes, and works great.

    Thanks. I've added just one 16Gb stick to have 32Gb in dual channel. That will do it for now.

    Ram upgrade and board flip

    For reference, I have watched this "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P23wM4cw6W0" video for disassembly.
    Generally, I can't find information about the specifications of the slots, but in this case, I suppose they have to go in odd and even number pairs.
    On my Asus ROG G703GI, I have stock 16GB on the inner slot 2.

    I have ordered the very exotic and difficult to come by Apacer Technology 16GB RAM stick.
    Now with regard to the video, there are a few things I disagree with. But for the purpose of this post I the main thing is that the heat sink doesn't have to be disassembled for the board to be flipped. If we are careful we can flip the whole thing with the fans.
    I have done this on the Asus ROG GB703VT. Granted it is much thinner and lighter but the principle is the same. In that case, I think the fans were not so strongly taped to the heat sink as it appears to be the case here.
    Also if we are separating the heatsink I would think we should replace all thermal paste, not just the GPU/GPU but that is a separate thing.

    Ram upgrade and board flip (update)

    The bottom Ram Slot is number 3. The top one is number 1.
    I tested both.

    Slots 1 and 2 were at single-channel mode.
    Slots 2 and 3 run in dual-channel mode.
