    Yeah I posted in your thread before when you talked about your RAM upgrade. Someone else said ASUS told them the HyperX is not compatible at 3200MHz, I believe. I'm looking at the 16GB equivalent to the 8GB Micron sticks that come stock, and the 16GB sticks are $160 each. I've found others that might be compatible, but at this point I'm waiting for Blake to respond to a list of various sticks I found to confirm compatibility. I think I messaged him a week ago though, so still waiting.... Never had so much trouble with a RAM upgrade.
    Totally understand, I do state tho that the RAM I have purchased works perfectly well with the G512LV and should work with any laptop regardless of model as long as it supports the motherboard albeit the wrong clock speed could have saved money with the 2933MHz rather than the 3200MHz but has never crashed or had any hardware conflicts or errors. The previous thread you read into shows that it works

    but yea Asus are slow on the ball on response but given the current climate id say its kinda understandable for that.

    It's been discussed multiple times, pretty sure you can't repaste these liquid metal cooled CPUs. Using TS already.

    I could never feel ok purchasing something that doesn't give me the full benefit what I purchased. I am returning the Ballistix I got, and hunting for something that will run at the advertised speeds at a decent price.



    Sidenote, y'all seem to be giving Asus, a multimillion dollar corporation, a free pass on what are obvious design flaws. This is my first time buying a laptop of this caliber and expense, and I have to say, for paying a premium price, I am not getting the premium experience I expected. Have never spent more than $1000 on a laptop before, and never had issues with swapping RAM or HDDs or SSDs.

    Y'all are focused on what I, as the consumer, should do to improve the premium product that I already paid for. I am focused on what Asus, as a multimillion dollar corporation, should do/have done.

    Silicon quality varies and there several factors with memory. The first is the quality of the kit itself. The second is the CPU memory controller. Motherboard design also matters but if you get a weak CPU or kit that isn't going to help you. All that is to say you may not be able to get a kit to run at advertised speed but better kits often hit faster speeds easier. If you want to hit 3200 you might need a 3400 or 3600 kit so you aren't on the edge of its capabilities.

    I purchased 2 additional 1TB nvme SSD's to go with the one that you get with it and just purchased the ram as soon as I knew what max clock speed and maximum capacity it was going to be without hesitation or second though. If the GPU/CPU/WIFI failed to work at all I wouldn't be RMAing it back to asus id be taking it back to overclockers UK and get a replacement or pay more for an upgrade. But alas I got lucky.

    I'd be more than interested in your next choice Mine is 2.5 times more expensive and reading the feedbacks for the other brands with same specs, I would definitely still stick to Asus. Please provide some feedback on your next purchase and your thoughts on it after you get it.

    Here is a question what Liquid metal compound is currently used in the G15/G17 series laptop? and what is the heat sink/panel made from?

    Probably go with a Lenovo Legion, like I was looking at before this, if I ever buy a premium laptop again, which I doubt I will. Decided to go with this cuz it's available at Best Buy where I have a store card.

    If you have a laptop that cost 2.5x what mine cost then obviously you have money to blow on bull**** and not give a ****. I don't. This was about as much as I could afford.

    Wrong. I need this laptop for work - high demanding CAD/CAM, rendering, etc. (and yes, I'm always on the move, so desktop PC is not an option and I don't like them). I don't have time to fiddle with some crappy device, that steals my working time, giving me no profit while tweaking it. Do your research and you'll find out, believe it or not, all the laptops from this category suffer from the same issues. The thing with Asus is their heatsink is really doing its job, unlike many Dells, HPs and etc. Many Dells lock their voltage setting, HP suffer from poor heatsinks and so on and so on.
