Talking about gaming laptops, the first name that comes in mind today is Asus, which is then followed up by Lenovo and Acer. But recently Asus made a huge development bringing the liquid-cooled laptop into our lives. Asus is known for its ROG (Republic Of Gamers) family laptops. Forget MSI and its Blinged-out WASD keys, the new benchmark for Gaming now is Asus with its detachable liquid-cooler and an exclusive Hydro overclocking.
Since the reception of IFA 2015, this laptop has been widely anticipated by many Gamers. It is a game-changer that has opened up a new level of gaming using the cooler to build a higher performance for the laptop.
Asus Liquid-Cooler ROG GX700VO Design
The notebook doesn't only have a liquid-cooler, it is also thinner, lighter than other Gaming systems but its full performance is enjoyed only with the attached cooler.
The liquid-cooling dock is based on a custom self-sealing valve design, which is a quiet and highly reliable pump. It has dual 92mm radiators which are capable of dissipating over 500W of heat. The laptop can also run without the cooler, which just improve the performance and overclocking. The system is assembled by hand, which adds more to its appeal.
