    For what concerning the power, i think that with the 230w power brick, we should be just fine. I mean, in the past they had been selling the G20 with the 780 that has a TDP of 250w, the 1080 should have a TDP of 180w which is slighty more than the 980. My main concern is about the shape..

    I understand the support folks, still I wonder if ASUS ROG will release an in-house version of the 1080, perhaps adjusting the sizes to make it fit in their ROG G20 frame.

    Let's wait and see if anyone is brave enough to risk it.

    I feel like that's a BS response, the spec of the founders edition 1080 is reference spec, which is 4.376x10.5 @ double width. Same as my 980ti which fits which wasn't "supported". It worked even with the 230w 2nd psu for the gpu, just hat I had to limit power consumption to 90% at the time since the card req 250w. Now that I have the Dell y90rr it stabilized. I'm confident that the 1080 will fit and run on the g20aj that I will be the first one to order that card and install it. (Unless someone gets it before me lol)

    I have the CB as well, which comes with a 970 and I just pulled mine apart to see what type of pin it has. The 970 is connected by an 8pin and there's a second empty 6 pin slot. So I'm pretty sure the 1080 will work

    This thread will be interesting to follow.
    I upgraded my cpu (Asus G20AJ) last summer from i5 to i7 4790K and added 8 more gigs of ram without much hassle.
    ....and i would like to upgrade my gtx980 to a 1080 later this year

    I would test the Card on my G20 but before that, i want a review withe the real dimension, i know the power consumption will be ok

    Is it hard to replace the CPU on the G20 ?

    yeah I'll probably be getting one of the reference spec / founders edition cards because those are the safest bets to fit in the G20, other ones will be bigger and less likely to be able to fit or vent the air out properly. Oddly the EVGA site for the FE card says 5.94" tall, which is most likely incorrect as the height of the card matches the height of the rear bracket (which has always been the case for the Reference cards. I'll look around when the stuff comes out.

    No prob I don't mind taking the gambit. I'm prepping a display replacement too with the Asus PB279Q 4K display because of the 4 HDMI/MHL ports and the DP & mini DP ports which will replace my BenQ XL2420TX (the 3D 1080p monitor)

    Yeah I won't be satisfied until I install it myself. Also just replaced my 24" BenQ XL2420TX with a 32" BenQ BL3201PH (4K) some games run fine w the 980ti other's not quite so I had to roll things down a bit, but once I have the gtx 1080 should be good
