I am looking to buy Asus Gl702 VM. I have read many of the posts but still can't come to the conclusion. If I buy it I won't be changing thermal pastes and drilling holes since I have never even opened a laptop's back. So with undervolting, disabling turbo boost and ramping up fan speed manually be enough to keep CPU temperature to playable levels for long gaming sessions? I would really appreciate if someone helps me out.
Mostly, yes. If you see anything going out of control during the first few days, you can still return it, right?
That's the thing I am worried about because my friend would be getting it for me from US. And I stay in India. So if an issue occurs I would be stuck with it.
Same issue for me too. I live in India but bought my gl502vsk from New York. Now i am having thermal throttling issues and i can only get it looked at when i go to NY again since it has only US warranty and not global warranty so can't show it at indian service centre. 😞
I made a thread about my issue too if you want to read it :
You gave me an idea. Buy a bottom cover from an alienware 17 r4....cut the vent portion out, slap it on the back of the gl702vs...I do wonder if it would fit. You can get a used bottom cover for $20 on ebay. I bought one and am going to see if I can do something with it. Hoping it would look something like this:
