Memory-wise, there are two SODIMM slots that work with DDR5 RAM. It supports modules that work at 5600MHz. As far as the storage goes, you get two M.2 PCIe x4 slots, which support Gen 4 SSDs.

4. Cooling system

In terms of cooling, you get two heat pipes shared between the CPU and the GPU, with one more dedicated to the graphics card. They lead to three heat sinks, where two fans blow the heat away from the chassis. In addition, the VRMs and the graphics memory are being cooled by a couple of heat spreaders.
