Some tips from our technicians: Extra care is needed when working on motherboards as Asus is known to have highly fragile connectors and internal wiring and most of them are extremely difficult to repair. Keep an eye on your hard drive and storage controller as they are prone to defects and if not detected early, can potentially lead to motherboard replacement. Cleaning out ventilation system is recommended in thinner machines like Zenbook because of its low profile causing an early clog in the system. As with any electronics, static control is very important when working inside a unit. Dedicated video cards can be a bit tricky when replacing, follow all screw guides very carefully as they may be allowed to install incorrectly causing expensive damage.
