Inside ASUS ROG Strix G17 G713 – disassembly and upgrade options

This laptop was one of the first laptops with an RTX 3000 graphics card we had our hands on. And although our expectations were to see a very familiar cooling setup, it happened to be greatly improved over last year’s G17 G712.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside of this device, you need to undo 11 Phillips-head screws. The one on the top left corner will stay attached, and will gently lift the bottom panel from the chassis. Start your prying process from there and work your way around the device. Before you fully lift the panel away, make sure you disconnect the LED strip ribbon cables.


2. Battery

Interestingly, ASUS has put an enormous battery pack with a 90Wh capacity.


3. Memory and storage

In terms of upgradability, you get two RAM SODIMM slots, which fit 32GB of DDR4 memory, working at 3200 MHz. Keep in mind that this is the official capacity, stated by the manufacturer, and we are strongly positive that you can put up to 64GB in total. Additionally, there are two M.2 PCIe x4 slots for storage.


4. Cooling system

Inside we see a giant cooling solution, consisting of a total of six heat pipes of various sizes. One of them is common for the CPU and the GPU. There are two more for each processor, and one cooling the graphics memory and the VRM chips.

It packs one of the best, if not the best mobile processor on the market right now - the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, and can be configured with up to the RTX 3070. As we saw with the last two reviews we made, manufacturers won't make it easy for their customers, as the RTX 3070 alone comes in configurations between 80 and 125W. Well, at least this is what NVIDIA states on their webpage. However, NVIDIA also told us that you can check t[...]
