    Can you please check also if it's affected by some serious reverse ghosting issues or not?

    I'm100% sure you have a single channel RAM.

    Add another ram in order to have dual channel, that will solve your issue.

    Been testing mine for a while, temperatures seem higher than the notebookcheck review: https://www.notebookcheck.net/An-LED-Light-Show-Asus-ROG-Strix-G-GL731GU-Laptop-Review.427419.0.html

    Though I think their numbers are a tad suspect, they seem way too low. Mine just about stays under 90 most of the time with a -0.056v undervolt. GPU is completely fine though, stays around 77 degrees most if not all the time.

    Not sure whether it is worth repasting or even sending back, I'm getting sick of sending computers for repair so I would probably leave it as it is since it isn't throttling.

    How are people enjoying this laptop? I am debating between this, a GE75, and a Clevo PB71

    Did a lot of research before settling for this particular model.

    Have now been running one of these for 5 months - the machine I got came with 32Gigs of RAM, fully pimped-out with 2 TB NVMe and 2 TB SSD (17", RTX-2070, core i7 9750h) 144 Hz 17" display.
    It's been working wonderful, but I only do occasional gaming with it, mostly just demanding multimedia work and some computationally intensive tasks like neural networks and so on as well as running some VMs while working.

    I can't find anything wrong with mine, everything works as advertised, no defects, build quality is very decent... I wouldn't try to compare it to a lightweight machine as far as fan speed when the RTX card kicks in for gaming, it's obviously not super-quiet or very portable. That being said, I did have to switch to a nimble and heavily optimized OS in order to get there and make it play nice.

    The Windows 10 Pro it shipped with was full of crapware and unnecessary things that seemed to slow it down and were causing major latency issues as well as some glitches with audio which were unacceptable in the work I needed to use this for, so I decided to try and install a stripped-down Windows 10 Enterprise Edition LTSC image, once that was done it seems to have regained around 15% of processor cycles and things have been running very smooth. (policy editor on this image had disabled many services so - no Cortona, no telemetry, no MS store, no Edge browser, no Windows Defender, no Spectre mitigation) All drivers were automatically detected and worked upon install, and I've just been adding specific features as I need them. Wish I had the time to wait for the core i9 model with RTX2080 to ship but didn't have that luxury and quite honestly it's enough for my needs. I maintain a bootable backup of my OS disk, so no matter what happens to it all my settings could be transferred to another machine were this one to have a major issue.

    Only downsides would be: don't expect much battery life, AC power brick is rather heavy, no Thunderbolt port.

    The overall rating would be 8.75/10 - very satisfied... besides what I wrote above not sure what could be better. It's a dream machine for the price (under $3K) when I compare it to what I'd have to spend to get one of these new 16" Macbook Pro laptops in a similar configuration. The OS re-install was just part for the course, I usually end up running my own images instead of trusting the stock builds. Anyway, let's see how long the honeymoon lasts.

    As always, ymmv - take my experience with a grain of salt as your needs may be different from mine.
