    That $1800 Aorus was to good to be true. When I received the unit only one of the SSDs would detect. It would only detect 1 Nvidia 970M. After reformatting and reseting the bios it still only detected 1 970m. I ended up returning it and ordered an X7 Pro Sync. I didn't see an option where you can disable one gpu in the bios. It only showed 1 970m in the device manager.

    You disable SLI in nVidia Control Panel.

    Well, they shipped it USPS instead of FedEx and they denied it at my local FedEx office, which was my delivery location. So, now it is being shipped back to sender and will have to wait another week or two. Sucks and very disappointing

    yep. Right click the desktop screen and select nvidia control panel. Got to 3d settings i think and select "enable SLI'. For some reason, and my first Aorus X7 came like this, it comes SLI disabled. Really strange for Gigabyte to let this happen from the factory. Many people don't have the technical prowess to figure this out. much less know if SLI is enabled or not.

    Anyone having trouble with the on board speakers after running headphones? Seems mine don't like to come back on after using the analog audio jack. Its hit or miss. Reinstalling drivers didn't seem to do a damned thing...

    I double and triple checked this. Even in fresh system restore it'll open Nvidia Control Panel. There's no option to enable SLI. I honestly think that the unit had a defunct 970m. I was considering of possibly doing a warranty claim through Aorus but I'd rather not go through that mess and decided to return it.

    You should probably start by reinstalling the Nvidia drivers if you haven't already done that.

    Am I the only one constantly seeing "1.3.5" being mentioned as the latest "Driver update" in Driver Update (funny, eh?) but infact it isn't?

    It is the newest version for our laptop. The X5 has a newer version, 1.3.7

    I bought 2 X7 Pros, one of them shipped with a dead gpu. The laptop would still detect the GPU but whenever you try and use it, it would cause graphical glitches. Sent it for repairs on 19th of May (they didn't want to exchange it), still haven't gotten it back.
