I'm an end-user in Taiwan. I bought a G20CB but it is 2.5" SSD + 3.5" HDD.
I asked my question in ASUS Forum. But the customer support was giving the answer and says my G20CB is not support M.2 SSD slot.
He don't want to give me any information of M.2 SSD supporting list.

So, I asking here and try to get answer. Are there any official supporting list of M.2 SSD of G20CB?
Or the M.2 hardware spec? length? thickness? defect type? M type? controller? PCIex4?

Hi, Greetings,

Yes the ROG G20CB does support M.2 SSD, Though the older models did not support it. You can get a PCIe 3x4 SSD as well. For Installing the same, I recommend you to visit the nearest service center, as opening the chassis by yourself will void the warranty. Feel free in case of any further queries.
