Asus UX501 review

Asus UX501 with a frequency of 2.6GHz Intel core i7-4720HQ processor, performance is very strong. Graphics card for 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M game alone, storage is the use of8GB large capacity memory, with the 128GB SSD+1TB HDD hard drive, to ensure the running speed of the system but also can ensure that users need for storage space. Can say in performance over Apple’s MacBook Pro UX501 from the Asus performance.

Using a design similar to Apple’s MacBook UX501 design on the back cover of the Asus, also use the six screws relatively rare. But unlike MacBook, the two foot above the back of the UX501 under the possession of two ordinary screw, need to pay attention when removing the rear cover of the. The 10 of six around the corner screw, you can easily win the entire cover.


At the beginning of the dismantling of before, first of all need to pay special attention to is tounplug the battery power cable. At present, most of the notebook computer using the built-in battery structure design, in order to prevent irreversible damage in the dismantling process,remove the cover after the first thing is to unplug the battery cable, cut off the power supply of notebook computer completely.

After removing the battery, you can see the battery capacity is 60Wh, and the UX501 battery capacity is equipped with 4K screen is larger, enough to meet the demand of the emergencypower supply is not out.

The next speaker unit dismantled on the left and the right, first disconnect the connection on the left side of the line above the sound. The next step may require a point, because the UX501 sound is fixed by glue, need a little patience when they were dismantled, slowly open.

Remove the loudspeaker, can remove mechanical hard disk. Only need to unscrew the 4 screws can be easily pulled out. Also worth noting is that this machine is connected directly tothe hard disk of a conversion module and the motherboard, and the 4K version of the machinewith no mechanical hard disk, there is no the conversion module. This also proves that, 4K version and the regular version using the same motherboard.

Below to begin dismantling Asus radiating module UX501, first of all according to the fixed screw by the digital, remove the screw in reverse order, and then carefully remove the cooling module. On the back of the heat dissipation module, we can see that in addition to CPU and GPU have good thermal conductivity measure, heat treatment of memory chip to do around GPU.

In order to realize the thin body, UX501 heat pipe in heat conduction effect under the premise to ensure a certain degree of weight loss, so that he could into the thin body, while also using the double cooling fan, and optimization of the air duct, so that all of the air can be sufficientheat exchange with the heat sink, to fully ensure the cooling effect.

The dismantling of screen, first need to unplug the screen line. As shown in the picture below,directly hold the hand screen line, a little hard to pull out, and then tighten screws fixed screen axis. Note that the triangle symbol next to this is a representative of screw screw position fixedscreen shaft, used when installing tips, to avoid the screw dislocation.

Screw all the fixed screen shaft after removing the need to screen, open to 90 degrees, can beremoved from the surface of the C flat screen shaft. Thus, this process has come to an end.

The last is the process of dismantling the motherboard, the motherboard screw disassembly,also need to pay attention to a white triangle screws next to the tip, which is said board fixing screw’s position suggests that, at the time of installation for the white arrow installation can avoid wrong screws.
