    ordered a GX701 (144hz (gsync), 2070, 16gb). How is the issue with inverse ghosting, has it been solved or is it still a problem? Any recommendations on what to do with a new setup?

    Regarding repasting, does this void warranty?

    just received my gx701. overall satisfied, still evaluating. I notice the ROG icon above the keyboard is not completely flat, is this by design or is it a "defect".

    Hi all, anyone know how to lock the function key on the gx701gx? I’ve been able do this in other gaming laptops via Bios or directly on the keyboard, but I’m having trouble locating it. Thanks in advance!

    Hi guys,

    Is it normal for the CPU on 90% load to sit at around 91-94 Celsius for Zephyrus gx701 or should i try to re-paste the thermal paste?

    I am playing Battlefield 5 and it seems that this game is a CPU hungry one

    So those are very high temps, my GX701gx idle temps hover around 42-45c and with intense sessions the max CPU is 82c an hour of gameplay. But keep in mind that I’ve repasted using liquid metal compound and I know how to apply it carefully since I’ve performed the upgrade to many gaming laptops I’ve owned. It’s completely worth it!

    Hi. I noticed two GX701 version, with I7-9750 and upgradable up to 32gb RAM and I7-8750 up to 24gb RAM, now any questions:

    1) it's worth to pay extra 150 euros for the tersion with I7-9750?

    2) the version with I7-8750 (on Asus site is upgradabie up to 24gb ram), well, is it possible to upgrade this version up to 32 GB RAM?

    3) reverse ghosting is a real issue?

    1) No

    2) the GX701 comes with a soldered 16gb and a free ram slot. Just add another stick for 32gb.

    3) with a 7ms panel response time 240hz and 300hz will have ghosting. I'm not sure how bad the panel overdrive to 3ms is but typically overdriven panels will have inverse ghosting at any refresh rate below the maximum.
