    Hi there! I just contacted ASUS Hotline for twice. They finally give me a confirmation that it's not compatible. During the first call, the agent just said to me usually the motherboard is designed for single-sided. During the second call, another agent give me the confirmation that doubled-sided SSD is not able to slot in to the laptop. Anyway, I appreciate the answer from ASUS. Thanks. This thread can be closed also.

    Hi there. These SSD and RAM are not sold on any retail stores and I personally would like to avoid visiting the service centre. Also, these are OEM SSD, which don't give good endurance TBW and the performance is not as good as Kingston KC2500 for both Reading & Writing speed, that's why I wanted to replace the SSD. The original 512GB SSD has only 180TBW for its endurance and I'm not satisfied with it. The writing speed is also just 1100MB/s as it's a Micron QLC SSD. Based on the information given above, you will notice that I still wish to stick with 500GB for SSD. That is why I asked if Kingston KC2500 is compatible . Also, please understand that the WiFi card is not built-in. It's an M.2 2230 and I would like remove the original WiFi card Mediatek MT7921 because it's not giving decent speed for WiFi. What you gave me is already given by Asus Hotline but the model and brand of SSD and RAM given is very different. Therefore, my question is: Is Intel AX200 WiFi Card and Kingston KC2500 SSD compatible with my laptop or not? Seek for your understanding, much appreciated.

  • Hi there,

    The RAM/SSD we provided are the specs that our engineer verified.

    If you would like to consider other brand RAM/SSD, please search for other user's sharing.

    For the wifi card, if there is wifi speed issue, we suggest refer to service center to have further inspection or repair.

    Replacing wifi card on your own will void your warranty.

    Thank you.
