    Well, the issue is, as they said, there is '...no compartment on the back of your laptop that will give you direct access to the components you want to upgrade." They mean, the RAM and SSD are not installed under the service panel on the bottom, so it takes a complete teardown to get at them. This should only be attempted by a trained technician with experience doing so because there is too much risk of damage. If you bugger it, it is on you without any warranty protection.

    It would probably be best to contact your vendor to do any upgrades you need.

    A youtube video and some care during disassembly will go great lengths to prevent any damage in my experience.

    It's not THAT hard, though maybe not for the faint of heart :p

    1. anyone else feel 'power pulses' when they rest their hand on inside logo?

    2. I apparantly don't have the original charger. Mine came with 20V, 14A charger instead of 19.5V, 11.8A charger.
    I have the GWR (115W full 2070)

    Who has a 2080max q 8750h version willing to test a vbios? Need to know if it will work for others before I post it live

    Strange - the USB 3 port by the USB-C and HDMI connections has stopped recognising my connected USB hub. Was fine until a couple of days ago - now, everything that is on the hub keeps connecting then disconnecting in a cycle.

    If I connect a single device to the port, it's fine. The hub also works in the other USB 3 ports.

    Does anyone have a GX701 vers "XB78"?

    I cant understand whether this one is the one without Gsync (HDR panel) and/or has the 2080maxq with enhanced tdp at 1000+mhz

    This looks like the one, with a 990mhz 2080 @90w:

    (Free 2nd Year Warranty) ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 Gaming Laptop Bundle, 17.3” 144Hz Pantone Validated FHD IPS, RTX 2080, Intel Core i7-9750H, 32GB DDR4, 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD, Win10 Pro, GX701GX-XB78
    https://www.amazon.com/Zephyrus-Validated-i7-9750H-Processor-GX701GX-XB78/dp/B07WGJG4GB

    This came up first as ES - Spanish, and the seller TinVIA may be outside your area, but look around - at least this listing has the technical info and component build out details for the model. :)

    I didn't seen the refresh rate on the HDR panel, but the other option is a 300hz refresh panel:
