    Hi, I can only say that once you install one of those AIO watercoolers, your problem will be resolved....completely, as with my corsair aio I was getting max 40c...however, while I am waiting to buy the gtx 1080ti watercooled hybrid, I thought to replace the thermal paste (mine is the old g20aj i74970) and this did the trick as now I have max 55c when on load (not too much).

    About your warranty, unfortuantely, I am sure that in 2 yrs your precious g20 will be ready to retire....I opened mine just a few days later, I remember it had a sticker at the bottom which I carefully detached with the use of steam...;-)

    Remember that if you want to keep the rog g20 and add AIO watercoolers, you need to mod the case and mine has now a big hole I cut at the bottom...

    Overall, would you say attempting to do this is worth it? Or should I move on & completely buy a new rig?

    Seeing the way Six4Bravo has done it seems dope, but then again, does the trouble of achieving this lead to more trouble to make you want to completely get rid of your PC?
    the way forward is to either ass an add-on case at the bottom, where we can store the watercoolers or follow through my plans to mod the case...completely, as the final product uses mainly the themaltake case or any other which has a glass window at the front and fits perfectly....

    I have seen the project with the added side fans and sorry but its ugly...old style really.

So off to the local comp store they went, came back with some Geil DDR4 ram and a asus strix B350 (Ryzen board) and asked if I could put them in for him after he opened everything up to show me what he got lol.

    I had to break it to him that none of those would work and about all I could do was add a older AIO I had sitting possibly. Now that I see that it can be done I will let him check out the images and see if that's a route he wants to go.....or just pick up the rest of the parts to use what he already bought.

    Looks pretty cool and hope it works like you wanted it too
    Kids eh....the mobo cannot be replaced really, I am happy with 16gb ram, then you really need a SSD drive (better if you have a m.2 one, mine doesn't as it's a g20aj). I hope that his cpu is a I7...

    go on with the AIO, but remember you need to cut a hole on the case (i did it at the bottom and it worked nice).

    Good luck.

    Just my 2 cents here but, all these postings with adding liquid cooling and temps when you add a different vid card, etc...this PC wasn't built to be modified, and I work in IT. It was built for people who wants a completely compact footprint with the sum of the components being worth slightly less than you pay (go price out a likewise Alienware, etc).

    If you are looking to modify or upgrade, you've bought the wrong PC, period. You can look at mini-itx or the like if you want compact that you can play with (I did before buying this, and made my informed decision based on all the research and reviews beforehand).

    That being said, the BIOS bricking and replacement motherboard failing were not cool, not to mention the horrendous service center that scratched my PC. In the end, I came out with a mint PC (after sending it back and forth for a month) with a replaced case, and extended 6 month warranty.

    and what happened to the g31 edition 10? case is bigger and has an external gpu case if needed, more of a modular pc....anyway, i personally bough the g20 because of the look and the gtx 980 (which is now antique); i paid £1500...at the time did not seem too expensive..

    this was 2 yrs ago...but there seem that even in 2017 asus has failed to add any watercooling....look at those tiny cpu fans....ridiculous. I know the idea was of a compact pc, however lets not forget the g20 is part of the ROG series....that is gaming 24hrs no issues....sure they could have improved hardware.

    1900 euros at present will allow you to build a i7x + gtx1080ti both watercooled.all rgb with 64gb ddr4 and 500gb m.2 ssd...so i accept that both rog and alienware are hugely overpriced machines.... with the latter being the worse.

    tech moves on really and its increasingly more expensive, however at times the claims over what they offer is exaggerated....but.....still think those who created the g20 design were spot on....though it was just about its look...sure they must have tested it with a big gpu and noticed the 90c and helicopter style fan noises....uhhh
