    ROG G20 Overhaul

    So I just got a G20 and I decided to replace the stock 760 with a 980, add an SSD and upgrade the HDD. The GPU was tricky but I managed however, Click image for larger version.

    This just made my day! Which 980 did you put in it? There are many different variants to choose from.
    My g20 only came with a single power brick so I need to try to find where to get the second one/double brick unit.
    Did you need any other cables other than whats in the unit itself or that came with the card?
    Finally did everything function when you put it back together?
    Asus dont want us to upgrade with their hardware hence the repeated same answers of warranty being void etc. which is fair enough but I'm determined to upgrade my g20

    The only 980 that this will support it a reference design since it's max power draw is 170ish watts, my 980 is from nvidia, I'll post a pic tomorrow.
    As far as the power supply goes, mine came with a second since I got the model with a GTX 760. I'm guessing you could just buy one and connect it as long as the polarity is the same as well as the power rating. Here is a pic of the power supply for the GPU Click image for larger version.

    Also I just realized when I took the pic that the GPUs power supply supports up to 230 watts so as long as the GPUs max power draw does not exceed PSUs rating and it fits in its slot, your golden. Here is a pic of the GPU slot. Click image for larger version.

    As far as the cables go there was a 8/6 pin in the chassis and in the box there was another 6 pin, so at the most the G20 supports one 8 pin and one 6 pin or two 6 pin connectors for the GPU

    The parts are upgradable. Not impossible, just a real pain in the a**.

    Heck well if I'm this far in I might as well add some RAM lol
    So I was looking at removing the back panels of the chassis at first to provide easy acess to where the SSD should go but after tinkering around with it I decided to just go the long way and remove the DVD drive and CPU heat sink. It doesn't look like anyone else has done option A and I didn't want to risk damaging the cases precious looking plastic.

    This is great info for me! I'll start looking for somewhere that will sell me that PSU, the gpu slot pics won't work for some reason?
    Do you think the 980 will be able to cool ok with the tight space in the g20 chassis?
