Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73 RAM/Memory Upgrade Guide

Though it's true that gaming laptops have become more affordable over the past few years, this has been in large part due to the manufacturers shifting the upgrade cost to the consumer. Specifically, when it comes to memory and storage, more and more companies are launching decaffeinated versions of their laptops whilst allowing users to upgrade to whatever suits them best. Such is the case with Asus and its latest Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73, a very compelling gaming laptop that lands on the shelves with a very tight 8 GB of RAM. 

However, this model takes up to 64 GB of RAM, and today we're going to walk you through the process of upgrading the memory on the Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73. A straightforward process that should have you in and out in under 5 minutes. Let's get on with it!

Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73 RAM Upgrade in 5 minutes or less

How much Memory does the Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73 take? What type of RAM should I get?

First off, you should know that the Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73 takes DDR4 3200MHz CL22 1.2V SODIMM memory. That's DDR4 memory that clocks in at 3200 MHz and works under the low voltage of 1.2V. 

As for the amount of memory, this model can support up to 64 GB of RAM, as mentioned previously. Being able to insert 32 GB of compatible RAM on each of its two available slots.

With the laptop coming with 8 GB of RAM split between the two slots we would advise power users to get at least 16 GB of RAM with two compatible 8 GB modules of RAM and we would urge hardcore intensive users who are planning to use this laptop not only for gaming but also video and picture editing to upgrade to 32 GB through two compatible 16 GB modules

Finally, there's also the option of maxing out the RAM by going with two 32 GB modules

How Do I Perform the upgrade?

This is possibly the easiest upgrade you can do to a laptop.  You're going to need a Philips screwdriver as well as something you can use to pry open the laptop such as a guitar pick, or a credit card if you're in a pinch. 

Step 1: Before you go on with this upgrade you're going to go ahead and turn the laptop off and disconnect it from the power source. Now place it upside down and remove the screws located at the bottom of the laptop. Once that's done, make use of the plastic pry to open the laptop up like so:

Step 2: Now that you've removed the case you'll see a couple of ribbon cables attaching the case of the laptop to the internals. You need to remove them by using a plastic pry and pulling up on the black locking mechanism that holds them in place. You should be careful to not break these as they are the ones in charge of powering up the RGB downlight of this laptop.

Step 3: Now that you've successfully removed the ribbon cables you're going to go ahead and pull back the heat shield exposing the RAM modules located below them. Since you're most likely going to upgrade both modules you should do the same in both cases. 

Specifically, you need to pull outwards on the clasps located on the side of the RAM slots. That will release the memory at a 45-degree angle, at which point you may remove it.

Step 4: Now that you have removed the onboard RAM you're going to insert your own modules in there at the same 45-degree angle. To know that you're inserting the memory correctly simply make sure that the notch on the RAM module and the notch on the slot align perfectly like so:

Step 5: Finally, press down on the RAM and you should hear a clicking sound of the levers snapping back into place once the RAM is correctly placed inside the slot.  Now you just need to place the ribbon cables back into place, screw the case back on and your work here is done. 

As I've said at the beginning of this tutorial, it's a pretty easy process. Now simply enjoy all the possibilities that your Asus Rog Strix G15 G513IC-EB73 with upgraded RAM will give you.  You might also want to consider upgrading the storage, as this model does house two M.2 slots, allowing you to easily upgrade the storage.
