    @hmscott Hello hmscott,

    Once you mentioned me that there is a software which is called ''notebookfancontrol'' and can be downloaded here: https://github.com/hirschmann/nbfc/releases

    I downloaded it to check if I can make it work with my G703 but I couldn't make it happen. Maybe because there was no profile about the specific model. I only would like to tweak the fans during web browsing. Is there any other suggestion you have or regarding notebookfancontrol?

    It's something that has instructions on how to make a profile, so I can only recommend to read the docs and experiment with it, but be careful and monitor the fan speeds - listen for fan noise and air movement - as I recall some reported hitting on settings that disabled fan's - they didn't run even as temps rose, so be careful.

    Google around and see if anyone has notes on making custom profiles, and check the Asus forums too.

    Hello fine folks in the Asus world,

    Is someone able to take a picture of the fans used in this machine or perhaps share a part number?

    EDIT
    Found the following:
    CPU: 13NB0EU0P07011
    GPU: 13NR0HJ0P01011

    Not sure if accurate because I haven't seen these numbers stamped on a real fan.

    Hi guys,

    I would like to ask a two questions:

    1. What is real gaming difference with one 1 power adapter plugged in insted of 2? I tried 3dMark and I have almost the same results.

    2. Is there free slot for 2inch SSD or HDD? or there is only free slot for one additional PCIe SSD?

    Many thanks for help,
    Sincerely Tomas

    1. There is no real difference to my eyes. I use 1 adapter all the time.

    2. There is [1] 2.5 inch hd/ssd slot. and [3] PCIE ONLY m2 slots. HOWEVER: i have samsungs in m2 slots 1 and 2. when i tried to use slot 3 with a 1tb pcie from crucial, i was told that BECAUSE I DID NOT USE INTEL SSDS FOR SLOTS 1 AND 2, SLOT 3 CANNOT BE USED. so im a little pissed at Asus right now but im waiting for an update on that situation. @Donald@HIDevolution if u know anything about this please chime in.

    Yes, that is correct. That is why we only offer 3 SSDs in RAID when the first two are the Intel 760p. It is ONLY with these 2 drives, coupled with any PCIe NVMe SSD in the 3rd slot, that you can get the 8,000+ MB/s in RAID 0. It is also why we only offer the Intel 760p in Slots 1 & 2 when getting no-RAID.

    Did u guys find this out after i made the purchase because, with or without RAID, i was never given the intel ssd option.

    It always came standard with the 2x Intel 760p SSDs in RAID 0. From the time of release until June 15th, we just called them 'ASUS Approved', not specifically the 760p. Your order was during the period from release to June 15th. On June 15th we specified that they were Intel 760p SSDs, but always only offered either ASUS Approved, or 760p, for Slots 1 & 2 in RAID 0.

    When you broke the standard RAID 0 in exchange for a single PCIe NVMe SSD, as you did in your order, then it could go in any slot.

    One of the major benefits for this model was breaking the PCIe 3.0 limitation of 1000 MB/s per lane, or 4000 MB/s with x4 lanes. To get the 8000+ MB/s (Asus ROG Hyperdrive Extreme) this model uses PCIe 3.0 lanes from both the CPU, and the Chipset, thereby sourcing more lanes. Asus ROG Hyperdrive Extreme in RAID 0 can only be achieved with 2 of the Intel 760p SSDs in slots 1 & 2 plus any PCIe NVMe drive, other than the Intel 760p, in slot 3. The fastest of all is combining the 2 Intel 760p SSDs with the Samsung 970 SSD.
