    Everything running smooth and easy and the CPU degree is strange enough the same as with the 3.4Ghz CPU but its a faster G20CB by this date.

    under your dvd drive area is your area to put a m.2 slot to fit yourself a ssd, personally don't think its worth putting in a K model cpu as the pc won't overclock, mainly down to the poor design cpu coolier. but great pics dude

    The i7-6700K was lying around and interested if the G2O could manage this CPU i installed it.Rather surprised that it is running as cool as it does with this CPU and to the bonus it even got a little bit faster without overclocking.(And have a nice day Welsh Whoopee).

    LOL ... Stress tested the updated G20CB with Asus Real Benchmark test for one hour when i was curious over its updated behavior with the CPU parked at 100% all the test time, and it didnt burn up.Happy about that it was cleared from any blue screens or breakdowns but will probably dont run a nasty software like this again on my nice little ROG G20CB who now is cooling down after this brave battle.In the same time i think its amazing that this small and closed G20 box could manage to do this GREAT work.

    Hello again everybody.

    The earlier upgraded G20CB still runs just GREAT and got its ram memory raised from 16GB to 32GB.

    Hi,

    Interested in upgrading myself. My G20CB has EVGA founders 1070 already. Does the I7 6700K at 4ghz make much difference?

    I defo want ram upgrade, did you go for single or dual ram and thinking on an m.2 nvme install.
