Inside ASUS VivoBook 15 F515 – disassembly and upgrade options

Building this device, ASUS has made some questionable decisions. Take a look at the cooling for instance.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside of the laptop, you need to undo 10 Phillips head screws. Then, pop the bottom panel, starting the prying process from the front edges.

2. Battery

Lastly, the laptop relies on a modest 37Wh battery pack, when it’s not plugged into the wall.

3. Memory and storage

As far as the memory goes, there are 4GB of DDR4 RAM soldered to the motherboard. Additionally, you have the option to upgrade it via the single SODIMM slot, which fits up to 16GB of DDR4 memory. Storage-wise, you have one M.2 slot, allegedly supporting PCIe x2 drives, and one 2.5-inch drive bay.

4. Cooling system

After you lift the panel away, you will see an extraordinary cooling solution. Interestingly, it still features a heat pipe, that cools both the CPU and the GPU, and ends up at a heat sink on the side of the device. However, instead of the conventional fan location, just behind the heat sink, it is located far away from it. There are two plastic walls on the bottom panel, which channel the air towards the heat sink. On the bright side, it takes some heat away directly from the heat pipe, the chips the video memory, and the VRMs. Sadly, though, this means that air that is no longer cool reaches the heat sink and the thermal efficiency of the entire setup is compromised.
