Nevermind the spec sheet, this ain't no desktop!
This is an Asus ROG G752 top tier gaming laptop(when it was released).
The person who whom I made Project: Tango wanted me to breath new life into his laptop, which he took with him overseas and had since come to fall on its butt.
It would take nearly 3 minutes to fully boot, and load times were unbearable.

The bitch of this build was that it was a completely different platform, but i figured, it's the same stuff just a LOT smaller. so the first thing was to get it apart. Once i did that, i tackled cleaning the POOP out of it. cleaned the fans, cleaned and applied new thermal paste, put on new thermal pads on the VRM.
After that, it was a lot of planning on what to DO with this thing now that it was all apart! and the idea came when i removed the monitor from its housing, and bang, Black Widow started to take form.
All in all, this was an amazing learning experience. Now, it takes less than 45 seconds to boot up, and temps are well within norm. This thing purrs like a kitten.
The only hiccup is the backlit black widow/microchip design on the monitor casing. i couldn't move the monitor power cable out of the way enough for it to not show up when the image is lit.
