Another interesting notebook from ASUS is on the horizon and this time its an ultra-budget ROG sibling. We are currently working on the full review of the model and we are eager to share some “inside” info on the GL552. Firstly, it’s relatively easy to disassemble and secondly, the most necessary parts for upgrade are hiding under the main service cover. Proceed below to see the full disassembly of the machine and upgrade options.
1. Removing the service cover
The service cover is held by two screws and once you remove them, be careful with opening it, since it’s a bit tricky. The right photos show what you’ll find under the cover – HDD/SSD, RAM chips, and an empty M.2 SATA SSD slot, measuring at 80mm with M key edge connector.
2. Removing the keyboard
First, you’ll have to take care of the extra screws at the bottom of the machine and once you’ve removed all of them, you can proceed by popping out the keyboard.
3. Full disassembly
This one is also fairly easy. Just make sure you’ve removed all the cables attached and the screws holding the motherboard and then you can perform your CPU and GPU fan spring cleaning.
