    ASUS CG8580 technical issues prior to purchase

    Thought too hear about ASUS CG8580 technical issues prior to purchase

    A) I would like to know which motherboard included in the ASUS CG8580.
    The information I have found on the net that it is an Asus P8Z77 - V Pro Series, is that correct?

    B) How much memory can I have in (Asus P8Z77 - V Pro) I have been told that the ASUS CG8580 only manage 16Gb while Intel Z77 chip and motherboard Asus P8Z77 - V Pro can handle 32 GB of memory?

    C) How many internal hard drives can I connect the ASUS CG8580?

    D) Can In future replace Video card to any new ROG Graphics Card? without breaking the warranty?

    E) Where can I buy extra warranty for an ASUS CG8580 in Sweden?

    Hi Szajda,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    > The motherboard is based on the P8Z77-V series, similar to the Pro but not exactly. It's had some modifications to suit the CG series on-the-fly overclocking.

    > 32GB Max. The most we ship it with is 16GB I think. It's highly recommended you buy a single 32GB kit or try to match the specs of the shipped memory as best as possible to maximize compatibility.

    > HDD.. I can't remember exactly sorry.

    > The warranty may change due to local laws, however I think it should be OK to upgrade the CG in normal means - PCI/PCIe cads, SSDs, HDD, memory. Further dismantling of parts like the CPU cooler would be more questionable though. Any case modding like cutting/breaking etc is obviously a no-no to the warranty though. Best ask on our ROG Nordic Facebook page for specifics there and where to buy.: https://www.facebook.com/rognordic
