    Impressive, but what do you need all that storage for?

    Have the issues with Wifi/USB ports/audio been rectified yet?

    Pics please. Interested. Especially since my understanding is that the sata in bay 1 is the faster one than in bay 2. Thank you

    deteplete3, it's all awesome, but the stand out part, perhaps the one you can focus on in a separate posting, is fitting an M.2 and a SATA III drive in Bay 1, that was what we all have been waiting for - and you got a positive result! :)

    Please do include as many photo's as needed to describe the sequence to make it fit / work for others trying to get it to work for them.

    When you have a posting together, one that you want to live a long time, we can make sticky post on the ROG G751 forum, so others can benefit.

    Thanks for trying, and getting it to work! :)

    I've been with the laptop for about 2 hours now...it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

    The ONLY issue i've faced so far is the infamous Intel Wi-Fi connection problems, when I first turned it on it wouldn't connect. Eventually it started working, like I was predicting, but I started to consider changing the Wi-Fi adapter...

    Been installing all my apps, but I wanted to ask a question: is there any point to installing CCleaner? I have it in all my PC's, to clean clutter and increase performance, but will it make any difference with an SSD? And will the writes CCleaner does hurt the SSD?

    UltimaXemnas, the modern SSD's can take all the writes / reads you can throw at it, for many many years. Read this usage test:

    The SSD Endurance Experiment: Two freaking petabytes - The Tech Report - Page 1

    cccleaner is awesome, and I run it on a regular basis. I use Firefox plugin's for cleaning up tracking cookies, blocking spyware, and blocking scripts, but there are still lots of cruft left by lots of programs that needs cleaning on a weekly basis - I weekly clean out over a gig of crap.

    CCleaner also has a plugin, ccenhancer, that adds a thousand apps (or so), and adds about a minute to startup time, but it cleans out even more cruft.

    https://singularlabs.com/software/ccenhancer/

    Well worth installing, updating regularly, and running weekly - or more.

    Have fun :)

    Thanks for the message dude, I guess the initial stories about SSD's failing all the time kind of traumatized me for life :p

    Is there any way I can know the SSD I have installed without opening the maching?
