ASUS 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Extremely Fast
Plays all games at high/ultra
Gtx 980m
IPS Panel
Wicked fast SSD
Lot more

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.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing card
boosts to 1215MHz in games
full backplate and heat spreaders

everything just works

Cons: stock cooler is a bit of a disappointment. i expected better from a $600+ GPU...

Other Thoughts: amazing!

ASUS DirectCU II GTX780TI-DC2OC-3GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet
cool (74C under load on auto / 60C under load 100% fan speed)
looks amazing

Cons: Power hungry!
voltage locked
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 pins
