    Hey All,

    Just wondering how everyone else is getting along with the GA502. It being one of the few laptops with the new Ryzen 3750H and 1660Ti.

    Haven't had any issues so far.

    I'm getting this annoying high pitched coil whine. Replaced laptop twice and still the same issue.

    Anyone picked one of these up yet? If so what's your configuration? Mostly curious about the thermals of this model

    Temps are terrible because Asus purposely covered the bottom intakes.

    Why? Product segmentation. They want you to get the much more expensive Zephyrus M.

    The intakes can be easily removed though and it'll drop the temps by 20-25°C

    Hey, I literally registered just for this. I noticed this on my laptop too and posted to the Asus forum, but no reply that had a satisfactory answer. I find it hard to believe that temps are not affected with these vents blocked. The fans do intake air as I figured when the bottom was removed completely. So I would say temp reduction as a result is 100% true.

    How did you remove the panels? did you remove the metal part and the paper? I tried to pry with some hard plastic but its fairly stuck to the bottom panel.

    Hit submit too fast :) But it is possible to overclock this 120hz screen to 144hz using CRU and some manual tweaking. Some ghosting is removed but still noticeable (by design it could never be removed)

    Alright, I removed the panel with a knife :) Metal panel and the paper is removed. Temps are about 10 degrees cooler. Those metal panels are fairly heavy.

    Unreal Asus have done this.

    You should look at the bottom cover of the TUF series.

    90% of the intakes are sealed
