    Hi,

    I bought the GL503GE and it had coil whine so I returned it and the replacement had also coil whine so I returned it again and the THIRD one also had so I decided to keep it and fix the coil whine with disabling the C1E via ThrottleStop.

    Overall I'm satisfied with the performance of this notebook but there are still some issues that bug me so I wrote to Asus about it but as I'm probably the only one complaining there won't be any results so I'm sharing this with you, maybe we can together put some presure on Asus.

    here is what I sent:
    also here is my thread from the ROG forums

    It'd be good if Asus added manual fan control :/

    How does the fans behave in idle and light usage like browsing and office? Do they spin up or is the notebook completely quiet?

    They slightly spin, depending on your fan mode:
    - Silent (quiet or don't spin)
    - Balanced (light spin)
    - Overboost (they can go loud if you're working on a big file with multiple assets)

    mine always spin, they never go under 1900 rpm which is a bit loud for me as my old gl552 had worse cooling and went completely silent while browsing, the gl503 goes silent only if you do nothing for 10 min and spin back up once you open any app

    GUY's i found something astonishing for our gl703/503V series. We can upgrade keyboard firmware and now use new effects like on the new G series, such as music effect, rainbow, temperature and fine tuning aura settings (example, turn off sleep effect). Asus of course hide this on support pages of our laptop, so you have to download it on GM501 support site. You have to install all in this order:

    1 FW updater=
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/...43.1823354327.1535737324-356665043.1518088038

    2 component app for aura core (you have to use latest aura core from microsoft store)=
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/...27.1823354327.1535737324-356665043.1518088038

    3 aura lighting service=
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/...08.1823354327.1535737324-356665043.1518088038

    4=after you have installed everything in this order just reboot your pc and then your aura app will have new modes

    EDIT
    just to remember...i don't want any responsability if you have problems with it... just tried on mine and all worked perfectly

    Anyone with the GL503VM-DB74 (Hero edition I believe) care to share the eSupport folder? I wiped mine without backing it up (didn't know you couldn't just download everything from ASUS). Turns out there are some items that you cannot download from the drivers page.

    Thanks
