Asus Zenbook Prime: SSD & RAM Upgrade!




What do you think about this video?

sadadda: can you turn the backlight keyboard off manually?

Chris P: I'm thinking about buying an asus N550JV, It's not and ultrabook and it only comes with a 1TB Hard Drive. Wanting to upgrade to an SSD, I was wondering how you loaded windows back on to the SSD after you upgraded the drive?

airplanefreak27: Can I do this with my UX31A? I need more storage space...

sadadda: it makes it lighter without the HDD right? about how much grams?

sadadda: isnt there a 24gb ssd? wher is it located?

Gibbo263: So can this definitely not be done on the UX32A?

aXnMaN: do you know if it possible to do this with a Asus Zenbook UX31E

Thenbproductions: I'm going to upgrade the hard drive on my laptop but I don't know how to reinstall windows, help?

Sebastian Contreras: Dear Austin. If i replace the hard drive in my UX32vd and install the 256 or 512 gb SSD, do i need to install windows again?.or the OS is in the built in 24gb SSD? many tks, very clear and useful your videos

David Rowe: You almost snapped the RAM... did you have to reopen it and insert it CORRECTLY?

Mouna Kharouba: My UX31A is so slow and the CPU is usually over 80%. What would you recommend for me to do? Thanks!

thecooooch: Hi. I just upgraded my Asus with a samsung SSD 840 and an 8gb ram Vengeance Corsair. When I started it, it says "reboot and select proper boot device..." I rebooted and pressed F2, ten chose the SSD a a main reboot option, but still it's doing the same error. Could you please help me with it. Thank you 

Venkatesh Muniyandi: Is it possible to do SSD Upgrade for Model UX32VD-DS72? According to spec this has internal two 128 SSD.

nevarran: Had to open a friends Asus without leaving a trace in case it causes some warranty issues in the future. Helpful vid, mate, thanks.

Ehsan Golkar: I have UX31A, it already have 128G SSD only, but i need more space, may I add or change my SSD hard drive and upgarde my RAM in UX31A? tnx for your help

Mike Gledhill: Brilliantly clear. Good job !

Momento1337: Thanks easy to understad video. 

Ciro Múseres: Thanks!

Thijs Hofmans: Is this also possible with a Asus Zenbook UX52VS-CN021H?

Angela Liou: hi is the ux31a upgradeable as well for the ssd?

Mira Deniz AKIN: What material do you use to wrap around the ram?

John Cummins: Great video. I upgraded the RAM to 10 GB in my UX32A (removed the 2GB stick and replaced with an 8GB one). Under the cover it looks the same as the UX32VD.

Nohemi AVENDAÑO: Hi The new ssd samsung model it is compatible? or cause latency? http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-EVO-Series-2-5-Inch-MZ-7TE500BW/dp/B00E3W19MO/ref=dp_ob_title_ce thanks.

ah rs: I installed a new ram in my UX32VD-DB71 but the system doesn't show that I have made changes it only shows that I have reduced the ram although that my ram doesn't require a installation or changing my bios ram (crosair 8gb DDR3) what should I do ?

thesilencer23: AUSTIN ! Thanks, that was very cool. One question... Do you find the keyboard flexes a lot on the VD model ? I saw on one video it's like a trampoline.. And I hate it, makes it feel cheap. Is it the same with your unit ? Oh, and is the screen MATTE ? Thanks !

eduard alexandrian: Hi. Thanks for sharing. A few questions: 1. Did the SO see all the 10Gb of Ram (the specs only say max. 8Gb and as there is only a free slot I may suppose it will only see a total of 8Gb; 2. If done before replacing the HDD a cloning operation should solve all the transfer problems, should't it? 3. The OS license is linked to the HDD or the motherboard? Thank you. Eddie. 

alinna chen: will a Samsung 840 pro 256G SSD work ok on a 32A?

joshciardi: Hi Austin After this upgrade how does it stack up compared to the UX31A? If not is it possible to do other upgrades to the VD version to out perform the UX31A?

Campbell Sinclair: Hey Austin I threw a corsair 8GB 1600Mhz and put it in the UX32VD but it wont recognise the 8GB. Bios still showing 2042.

straq88: Just wanted to thank you for this video, and for your continued attention to the questions people have had below. Using your instructions my 18 month old UX32A now absolutely flies. Thanks Austin!

Venkatesh Muniyandi: Can I upgrade SSD for UX32VD-DS72 model?

neeraj2608: thanks for this video, Austin. just as an update, 204-pin 8 gb SODIMM memory is going to cost at least $60 (PNY). Average cost is around $80 for Crucial or Kingston or other makes.

T4hKiserSose: Thanks for reply Qwahchees ,Never got a response from OP but I wondered if that was the max or not. I am now at GB on the ram. Might consider the SSD upgrade but seems like I have everything accessible externally that I need going back and forth to KSA. Sorry for late reply back

thecooooch: Hi Austin, Thanks for this useful video. I'm living in UK and there's no way to find the Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71. I was wondering, would it be possible to make the same upgrades (SSD and RAM) on the Asus Zenbook UX32A-R3038H? Thanks for your help

Homer Simpson: what's that lotion bottle for?

Sim Harbert: It is actually possible to replace the drive in a UX32A-DB51. I just put a Samsung 840 250GB in mine and the insides looked almost the same as the UX32VD shown in this video. Thanks for the video!

Juan Alvarez: Great vid. I'm new to this ultra books and I've notice there are no CD/DVD drives. So, if you have a bunch of old apps on disk how do you load them?

R. May: Any chance you could run geekbench on it or maybe even something like pcmark? The video was great. I am on the edge of taking my UX31A back and getting the UX32, but I was hoping to see some numbers before I do that. Thanks again for posting the video!

Austin Nwachukwu: I don't think so. Generally, replacing the GPU on any laptop is not really recommended.

Cristian Alexander: I like that you paid attention to match the RAM to the Bus latency.

712higuy: hey, great video! i was wondering if you have done any gaming on this machine with the ssd and upgraded ram, if so how does it do?

GTHCgthcGTHC: Please let me know if you have figured this out.

Austin Nwachukwu: Unfortunately, not much can be done to the UX31A. The price for the slimmer profile (in comparison to the 32VD) is the proprietary SSD and memory.

emkings235363: After you replace the hard drive how do you install windows on to it along with everything else that was on the old hard drive ?

Justin Rosaria: When you change the SSD do you have to clone your previous drive? or does the Hdd only had files and you just boot it up normally after?

blade: My UX32A originally had a quick start up ssd (24G) and an ordinary Hard disk (500G). Both were preloaded by Asus. Since I was replacing the 500G hard disk, it was necessary to clone all the files (hidden and viewable) from the 500G disk onto the new SSD (250G). I did this with Macrium Reflect (free trial 1 month) which allows you to clone from larger Hard disk to smaller SSD. Ensure your SSD is the right size ie. 7 mm (eg. Samsung and Crucial). Then install according to Austin's video

Shaan Bhambra: Do you know if the UX32A can be upgraded? I have 6GB RAM onboard, and I believe there is an open slot. I have an extra 2GB of RAM that I'd like to add.

SOSSENHEIM: have it SATA 6GB/s ?

ionvortex: very helpful, thanks man!

Mathias Bach Andersen: From a USB drive
