  Works perfectly
What works:

Everything is working in KDE, Mate, Cinnamon and Xfce desktop environments.

What doesn't work:

Of course software buttons in panel don't work (air plain mode, etc) but BIOS ones and action keys work.

What was done to make it work:

Install Nvidia cuasi.privative drivers (newer as possible from graphics driver ppa), Bumblebee and bbswitch from its ppa (primus/optimus w/o logout) and follow this link to make color backligth keyboad working http://askubuntu.com/questions/545789/gt70-2pe-dominator-pro-or-equal-keyboard-backlight.

Don't remember (it was two years ago) if need to install dmraid because of RAID0 (Super Raid II controller with two mSSD) but it works.
