1. Remove the bottom plate
This device’s bottom plate is held in place by 11 Phillips-head screws. As soon as you remove them, you can start the prying process from the bottom right corner, when one of the screws lifts the panel.
The ROG Strix G17 G712 features a 66Wh battery pack in the configuration we tested.
3. Memory and storage
Upgradability-wise, there are two RAM SODIMM slots, which work in dual-channel and should support up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. Equally-impressive, there are three M.2 NVMe drive slots.
4. Cooling system
In terms of the cooling, this laptop has four heat pipes that cool the CPU and the GPU – two of them are shared between them, and there is one more for each of them. Additionally, ASUS has taken care of the VRM and graphics memory temperatures with another heat pipe.
