        Did u forget about it? I'm very excited about new review.

      • Andrei Girbea

        No, it's in the works, but cause this laptop is not yet available, I decided to delay it for other more pressing reviews. Should be published in the next 7-10 days.

        Please help me. I purchased this laptop, and I believe it came defective. The fans are extremely loud at all times, even when idle. And when I load up any light game, they sound like an airplane. Absolutely unbearable. I'm going to the shop tomorrow anyway, but I wanted to hear your opinion. Thanks.

        Fan noise on our sample is discussed in the article.

    Hi I wonder if Red Matter model with the same specs has a RGB backlit keyboard like this model which is able to change colors? O r is this feature only for Gold Steal model?

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 5, 2018 at 4:12 pm

      That's a good question. From what I'm seeing, the red Matter model comes with a red keyboard, but that might differ from country to country.

    Thanks for the great in-depth review. Bought the FX505-MBQ202T and it's really bang for the buck!

    98% sRGB is not average color space. lol

      It actually is imo, in today's market.

      • Daniel

        January 10, 2019 at 1:07 pm

        In your opinion it can be. But in common sense it is not. 98% sRGB is fully sufficient for professional content online creating.

    Hello. Some TUF FX505 notebooks are depicted with aditional vent on the right side and some are not. Information on internet and from various eshops are confusing. Where is the truth? Thanks.

    • Andrei Girbea

      June 19, 2019 at 2:12 pm

      The newer models have some intake vents on the right side.

    my Red Matters ASUS-TUF-Gaming-FX505DY gets on full load 90°C until 100°C. Is something wrong with it or normal?
    all the best

      The AMD versions run very hot, unfortunately, and there's nothing you can do about it.

      • Max

        August 3, 2019 at 12:43 pm

        But I got the Intel Version..

      • Andrei Girbea

        August 4, 2019 at 8:49 pm

        OH, sry for that. You should undervolt the CPU then, that should help with the temperatures.

    will the temperatures damage the laptop ? i have the intel version itbdoesnt lag in games but it definitely runs high af

    • Andrei Girbea

      August 5, 2019 at 9:07 am

      Theoretically, no. Practically, I'd personally be comfortable with 80-85 for the CPU in a gaming laptop

    my asus fx505gd i5 8300h runs at 95 it spikes up to 97 and gets back to 95 degrees under anytype of gaming … its summer here so temp in ly room is about 29 dzgrees … is it normal or shall i bring it back ?

    • Andrei Girbea

      August 23, 2019 at 9:41 am

      try undervolting. Unfortunately, the FX505GD/GE series runs hot, the thermal module is rather limited for that hardware inside

      • Anonim

        June 24, 2020 at 4:06 pm

        dang, i bought fx505gd for more than a year and just realised it runs hot af, even if i play not a very heavy game like dota. does cooler pad help?

      • Andrei Girbea

        June 24, 2020 at 4:35 pm

        it should, but Not sure how much. You'll probably find videos on that on Yotube

    August 23, 2019 at 9:44 am

    is an acer nitro 5 i5 8300h gtx 1050 4gb a better alternative for the same price … especially in term of heatibg management
    thank you for your time

    Hey Andrei,
    I’m debating between two laptops you reviewed which cost about the same where I’m from and I’d love to get your recommendation on which one to go for.
    Asus TUF Gaming FX505GD / i7 8750H / 1050ti / 1TB HDD + 256GB M.2 SSD
    Lenovo Legion Y530 / i7 8750H / 1050ti / 1TB HDD + 128GB M.2 SSD

    • johny

      September 13, 2019 at 12:57 am

      They both have 60 fps screens

    • Andrei Girbea

      September 13, 2019 at 10:59 am

      I'm leaning towards the Y530, mostly due to the better thermal module. The FX505 of that generation tend to get really hot, with a slight impact on performance, and a potential reliability impact as well, long term

    my new FX505GD's battery didn't last very long, its broken and i need to use the charger when ever i turn it on

    • Anonim

      June 24, 2020 at 4:08 pm

      yea true, if i play game like dota with charger on, the battery also drops, the f ==
