    Has anyone opened up their Aorus yet to swap RAM or SSD? If yes, is opening it up pretty straightforward?

    Yes I added my SSD's, the ram is exposed at the middle bottom and the drives are positioned under a plate on the right hand side with proper cooling pads for your 2 x 2280 m.2 disks and then 2.5 on the left. Picture below from the submitted review.

    Right, but what I was wondering is whether it’s pretty straightforward to remove the bottom case in order to mess with the insides.

    Like, is removing screws the only thing to do? Or do you need extra tools besides a screwdriver?

    Yes just removing the bottom screws with the correct size torx bit then work it loose easily from one side. All screws seem the same size but nothing special just with care.

    Thanks for the reply. Some laptops seem to require more than just a screwdriver and a spudger to get the bottom case off, hence the question.

    Edit: you think this laptop will run plugged in without the battery?

    Say, how feasible is undervolting on this laptop? Or is it disabled?

    Undervolting is enabled and works normally though XTU. I haven't tried throttle stop yet but its usually a better alternative for sustaining your settings and clock profiles. The control center level only changes power levels, it doesn't change clocks or voltage at the moment.

    Is it possible to set a cap on battery charge with the software that came with the laptop? Or do you need to download something else?
