Asus ROG Flow X16 ordered - Any after order suggestions?

Level 8

I have ordered an Asus ROG Flow X16 GV601VI-XPC94 (4700 GPU, 32 GB RAM, 2TB SSD model) which has yet to ship, and I have ordered a Asus TUF gaming mouse (Demon Slayer version) and an HDMI 8K@60 cable from elsewhere.

Any other accessories I should look into getting for the new system? (Looking into potential backpacks for the laptop currently).

Anything I should do when I get the system? (Plan is to plug it in to charge and install any software updates available : Windows, drivers, and Asus software). On a review site I read on they had a color/display calibration file for the screen they are sharing for free, so thinking about downloading and integrating that...

Thanks in advance for any tips and/or recommendations!


Level 8 calibrates and uploads free color profiles for notebooks they review. They reviewed the ROG Zephyrus M16 2023 and ROG Strix G16 G614JZ that uses the same ROG Nebula HDR QHD+ 2560 x 1600 WQXGA Mini LED screen as is in the ROG Flow X16 (2023) GV601-CS94. I've linked the page of their review below where you can download the ICC / ICM for anyone that wants it. (If you have a different screen do some looking on there, and you may find your's on there as well).

If you don't know how to install the ICM you can do a search on YouTube for a video titled "How to install an ICC Profile - Windows 11 & 10 (HDR & SDR)". He goes through steps fast, so you may need to pause and go back to make sure you are doing each step correctly. Pay particular attention to checking the Advanced box so it has HDR.
