Inside ASUS TUF Gaming F15 (FX506) – disassembly and upgrade options

ASUS makes a lot of gaming notebooks. And the TUF series sits on the bottom end of the spectrum. Yet again, this makes it the most popular out there, since it is budget-conscious, and can reach a lot of people.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To take this notebook apart, you need to undo 11 Phillips-head screws. As usual, the one in the bottom right corner remains attached to the bottom panel and slightly lifts the edge so you can start the prying process from there.

2. Battery

Inside we see a 48Wh battery pack. And thankfully, ASUS offers an option that comes with a 90Wh unit.

3. Мemory and storage

In terms of memory, there are two SODIMM slots, which should support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM in dual-channel. Interestingly, there are two M.2 NVMe slots as well as a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. However, if you manage to get a configuration with the larger battery, you won’t get the option to expand the storage with a 2.5-inch device.

4. Cooling system

The cooling solution here includes two heat pipes shared between the CPU and the GPU, as well as a third one intended for the graphics card only. Additionally, there is a metal bracket that helps in dissipating the heat from the video memory modules. And although there are three heat sinks, ASUS opted against cooling the VRMs.

Not only did they broaden their pallet by offering AMD and Intel choices, but they have made effort to separate the brand from the shadow of ROG.As Lao Tzu has once said, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime". Similarly, the TUF brand was thought the lessons of being a good laptop, which will prove more lucrative for the brand, than if they just leaned on getting people to buy the laptop just because of marketing, and the promises of the parent company[...]
