Pros: Extremely Fast
Plays all games at high/ultra
Wicked fast SSD
Cons: Sub woofer makes the laptop vibrate and is noisy as hell at certain frequencies
Shadow play key is pointless
Steam play key had to be changed to open in library instead of big picture
Had to adjust the ram and CPU voltage and fan speed to get it to run cooler
Had to turn the keyboard lighting timout to be longer.
Other Thoughts: Overall it's an amazing laptop. Especially now that it's $600 off from what I bought it at. The CPU ran pretty hot from the box, so I used laptop fan control to make it run at 100% at 60+℃. It's still mad quiet. Along with that, I undervolted it, and also turned down the RAM timings to 9-9-9-24. This is all preference though and does not have to be done. Changing the keys- directions can all be found on Asus ROG forum.READ FULL REVIEW

full backplate and heat spreaders

Other Thoughts: amazing!READ FULL REVIEW
cool (74C under load on auto / 60C under load 100% fan speed)
Cons: Power hungry!
requires 2 8 pins
Other Thoughts: So the first one i ordered was a dud, it made my system crash 24/7 under gaming load. i RMAed it with newegg for a new one and this one runs amazing! If you are getting crashing problems, dont use the same cable from you psu with both a 6 and 8 pin, use 2 seperate cables with both 8 pinsREAD FULL REVIEW
