    So I have done an RMA on my 2nd G751JY-DH73-CA and now have a third one. Interesting that this 3rd one has a 15GB recovery partition (as you can see above the other 2 had 12GB) and the data partition is 3GB smaller.

    ASUS Backtracker cannot currently record a recovery image to USB thumb drive in FAT32 format because while it splits 8GB inatall.wim image file into 3 smaller asus.swm files, it does not try to split the custom.wim image which is now 4.3GB in size and over the 4GB limit. The first 2 units had S/N starting with F1N0WU..., the current one has S/N starting with F2N0WU.

    Any idea what's the exact SSD comes with the COSTCO models JY (980M) and JT (970M) in US available now with 24GB RAM. Is that XP941 / SM951 / simple 2.5 SSDs ?

    Is there a minimum free space you should keep on the ssd? I remember people telling me not to fill my "old" crucial m4 more than half its capacity. So I have 61gb free of 119 total.
    The version of the asus g751 that I'm interested in has "only" a 128gb ssd, and I will probably need more than 60gb in the future, when I install windows 10 and all updated software.

    Hello guys. I want to build a new PC and I am stuck on choosing the best SSD. I read this article that compares Crucial bx100 vs mx100 . What should I choose ?

    Hi Goat,
    It works if you have BIOS 206 - BIOS 208 but not with BIOS 202 - BIOS 205.
    On Ramcity SM951 motherboard compatibility list offers a link to notebook review where a guy with ASUS ROG G751JY purchased an SM951 for an ASUS X99 Desktop build. He said he briefly tried installing it in his G751JY with the BIOS 202 - BIOS 205 could not recognize the SM951 M.2 PCIe 3.0 SSD. He admits that he didn't waste more than five minutes with it and didn't bother to call ASUS ROG G751JY support since he purchased it for his X99 build anyhow.
    I was thinking of doing the same thing with my G751JY and cloning the 256GB XP941 to the 512GB SM951 using BPlus M2M to USB 3.0 Adapter/enclosure since Samsung claims speeds of 1600MB/s reads & 1350 MB/s writes on a PCIe 2.0 controller. After reading that post, I need to update from BIOS 202 to BIOS 208 first.
    If you take the chance and get it please post your results here. Thanks

    Jon G, yes that report was most disheartening, maybe a question should be posed to Asus to get them thinking about it? That would be the first thing, if a bunch of people with G751's asked for support of the SM951's.

    https://vip.asus.com <== create a login, register your laptop, file a Technical Inquiry asking for support of the SM951, ask if they are already working on a BIOS update, or if they can confirm it already works with the G751JY 207 BIOS.

    Please come back and let us know what Asus says
