Artic MX-4 thermal compound on cpu and gpu done recently



Okay so the bad,,


The card reader does not work. the usb ports on that side were not working properly so i replaced the unit with one from an g53sx, unfortunately the card reader which is apart of the unit isnt compatible with the motherboard inside. or at least thats what i figure.


I replaced the keyboard with a none backlit one due to some keys not working.


the buttons above the keyboard that control backlit and the turbo speed dont work. not sure why.
but you can control the turbo mode by pushing F-SPACE.


There is 1 loose panel on the backside which doesnt effect anything and isnt noticeable.


This laptop has served me very very well.


Paid 1600 brand new, Price 400 OBO


PM is key
