    i fixed the smearing and everything else. The laptop now runs super smooth and sharply.

    set V Sync on in the nvidia driver
    set everyting in windows to 100% power, no power saving!

    what caused the most problem was the automatic brightness setting of windows. I disabled it and the image got clear.

    and i have overclocked the gpu ram and the clock speed of the gpu up to 225mhz

    There is no minidisplayport. We're supposed to use a Usb-C to displayport adapter which works great for me.

    Does our 1080 max q card count as a regular 1080? I want to redeem a nvidia destiny 2 voucher which is for 1080 and 1080ti cards only.

    Is it possible to turn of the red light coming out from the intake on the sides?

    Take off the bottom cover and place a small strip of electrical tape over each led.

    Are they direct LED's, or is there a light pipe leading from the actual LED to the edge of the case?

    You might just open up the bottom and "clip" the leads on the LED if it's not surface mounted somewhere.

    Tape gathers dust and hair quiekly in that position, and might block cooling too - not sure where you planned on spreading the tape :)

    They are direct soldered on the board, the electrical tape is hidden by the bottom base unless you just really look in it. I did it to mine for a few business meetings.

    Hello everyone, I just join onto this forums. Don't bite me!

    I'm an old member of overclock.net and I used to have a custom rigged built up over span of 10 years. Finally coming back to mobile world of PC after owning some old Dell Inspiron 9300, HP HDX16 and MacBook Pro 15' 2011.

    Now ASUS Zephyrus GX501VIK is just mind blowing. This is my 3rd day owning it, already purchase a Case Logic model "LODO 15.6" LAPTOP SLEEVE" for it. I think it fits good unless someone can recommend something much better sleeve or protection. This laptop is very rigid and slippery! It's like driving a Lambo in a city road fill with potholes.

    I'm the poster on reddit.


    The odd thing about ASUS, I wonder why TurboBoost and ROG GameFirst IV is missing out of box.
