Again, off topic to the G11CD but hopefully a help to KemlynUltra, here, and to others who got the G20 deal.

I found a video on Youtube "G20CB WITH SIDE PANEL OFF GPU COOLING TEST - FURMARK" where a user removed the side panel and had the graphics card running under load, in his case a GTX1070 founders edition using the same blower method of cooling. Removal of the side panel bought the GPU temperature down by around 5 degrees. I would have hoped for more than that but it's welcome. He didn't mention the CPU temp. I think leaving off the side panel and the top panel that sits directly above the CPU's heatsink fins would help keep temperatures and fan noise under load down a bit but it would speed up the process where the internals become matted with dust, which would further impact temperatures. If you're not averse to disassembly of the metal shroud a couple of times a year and, with the power brick(s) unplugged, blasting the internals with compressed air (Costco has a good deal for six large canisters of compressed air) that would help prolong the life of the PC/keep temps and noise down a bit. You might some years down the line want to renew the dried up thermal paste but that's a lot more involved, a lot of tutorials on Youtube about that.

Important to say again, do make sure you unplug the power bricks from the back of the computer if intending to blast the internals with compressed air, to avoid a short; holding the can at an angle can result in a frosty-cold fluidic discharge. To avoid static, don't use a brush or vacuum cleaner head with a brush on it. Keep a finger on whichever fan you vacuum, to stop the fan's blades spinning at a speed that they might not have been designed to cope with, or at least not long term if cleaning semi frequently. Try to avoid direct contact between vacuum cleaner nozzle and motherboard components. I prefer to use compressed air to clean motherboards, with power supply disconnected.

I don't think removing the top and side panel would void the warranty, though don't quote me on that, I might be wrong, but I think taking it further and removing the metal shroud to upgrade components or blast with compressed air would void your warranty, especially if ASUS bridged warranty void stickers over the joints (though I couldn't seen any in photographs). ASUS has a good forum for the G20, including some good reads on notionally water cooling and upgrades, here: rog.asus.com/for…PCs

I appreciate it's a bit off topic to the original post, so thank you to people for tolerating that. The ASUS G11CD appears better for airflow!

From what I could find, the ASUS G20 uses a custom motherboard; it appears square, until you remove the hard drive, and then you see that it's sort of a fat L-shape. The CPU socket sits fairly near the top of the case, with two thick horizontal copper heat pipes, parallel to the motherboard, going up from the CPU to long and horizontal heatsink fins at the top of the case. Though I like making modifying other computer cases to rehouse components in, it would be a challenge, here. So, what to do, preferably without cutting that beautiful case?

If you go to the G20's homepage, you can see that the case has an inner metal shell. The sloping side panels, wide at the base, sees air drawn in from the bottom and cleverly channelled over the side of that shell, drawn in by the graphics card fan's hole and by the two slot fans at the top that feed the heatsink. As far as I can see, to remove the side panels you first have to remove the perforated top of the case, which then exposes the heatsink fins. If you left that top off, I think that would lower the CPU temperature by a few degrees when under load. It would, though, of course, mean that dust could get in and the case would also look less pretty. The top doubles as a dust filter. If you didn't mind periodically dismantling the computer enough to blast it with canister air, that might be an option but it's not ideal. I would avoid using a vacuum cleaner nozzle because it could result in static discharge, possibly. I remember watching a video of someone using a vacuum nozzle with a brush head on it and wincing at the thought of possible static discharge from the artificial fibres. Anyway! Other possible options.

It would be a pity to do this but I can imagine cutting holes in the side panel to line up with the GPU fan hole and the two CPU holes, though that would change the case's carefully channeled airflow in a way that might or might not help the motherboard's other components. It would also very much take away from the chassis clean aesthetic, wouldn't it. Perhaps, then, fan assist at the bottom of the case would be an option, similar to putting a laptop on a laptop cooler fan base.

You could make a rectangular cooler base, mount a couple of fans in it and have a fan speed adjuster knob, to turn it up a bit when gaming. That base would have to sit on raised feet to allow air to draw in from underneath. You would have to keep your desk well dusted and remember to periodically dust the under side of the case. If it was me, I would modify the desk the computer sits on. I would cut a couple of holes in the desktop and slot in a couple of fans. I would power them from a power brick and wire in fan speed adjusters. That way, you don't cut the chassis but assist air intake a little; I'm not suggesting blasting air upwards, that might put a strain on the computer's fans, just having a two or three slow-spinning fans, moving fairly quietly, assisting. I'll have another think, see if I can find a DIY for a laptop cooler and link it, here.

Not owning one puts me in anecdote and speculation territory, which isn't …Not owning one puts me in anecdote and speculation territory, which isn't worth the paper it's written on. I would live with it for a year until the warranty has expired, at least and only then open it up if you have experience system building and modding. If it was me, for now, I would make sure the motherboard has the latest bios. I read some comments about overbearing fan noise being improved by the latest bios when using Windows 10. I don't know if that throttles the components or there were some early compatibility problems with an earlier bios that had the fans spinning at full tilt. Looking at pictures and unhelpfully speculating, it looks to me as though the Asus uses shrouds and gaskets to channel air. I can see myself, perhaps, removing the hardware and putting it in a case with better airflow, if the motherboard has standard screw placement fittings for the standoffs and standard fittings for a third party CPU cooler. I would want to find an ifixit type teardown and follow it very carefully, though even there you have some risk. For instance, I repaired a 2010 iMac and one of the ribbon cables was gummy-glued down, which in the tutorial it wasn't; obviously you don't mess around with ribbon cables. If you really want to mod, you have to weigh up the risks.My curiosity is perked enough to have a look, though! It could be that it is practical to carefully drill out some of the vent holes to make them larger, if you are extremely careful and keep conductive metal dust/filings away from the interior electronics; I don't have an insect problem or kids with small probing fingers to be concerned about, at least, so drilling out small vent holes is an option. Perhaps. I imagine some people have drilled out fan holes or a circular hole or two holes in the side panel, though things like adding new holes to a closed system can change the air pressure flow in a case in ways that are not always desirable; I would be surprised if Asus's engineers hadn't thought it all through, carefully. I'll see what I can find but definitely make sure the motherboard is using the latest bios revision, try and keep the room's dust levels down. I will get back to you and share what I find. Hopefully bios settings/custom fan profiles achieve a good-enough balance.

​Right you seem to be blind to your own deal so I'll explain why this deal is going cold.

not future proof because as far as I can see it doesn't tell you what mobo this is so buying a k series CPU would be pointless cause you probably won't be able to overclock.

the gtx 970 at £200??? get a better/newer card for that.

power supply is rated as what? probably couldn't handle a future more powerful g/card.

does this case support USB 3.1 or USB type c?

this PC is basically used as there's only 3MONTH warranty. so stop treating these parts as new.
Not sure what the he'll is going in with that case, but if you're sticking it under a desk, then it's not an issue.

I think this is a decent deal if you want a pre-built pc that you can game on. I can't put the build together for any less.

Yes you can. The TP Link is VDSL which means you don't need a separate modem for fibre.

What a strange way of admitting fault and apologising...

You may as well have just written "I don't know what I'm talking about but I'm able to copy/paste a technical term I don't understand." X) Well, it's a lovely number that you've pulled from just one site, bro... wait, I mean, zero sites. Where are your links? Let's have two-three sites backing you up on this (after your disdain for my "one" site... although to be fair, you did provide another link proving yourself wrong, so thank you for that).

Putting something in bold does not magically make it a fact. Or did you know that the 970 is over seven times faster than a 470? Wow, it's in bold, it must be true.

I've seen the latest drivers and their draw call efficiency improvements, and a stock 470 is still behind a stock 970, so I'm curious to see which few sites you'll choose to pull your numbers from, bro.

Feel free to ask for help, of course - you're making many egregious errors, both technical and literal, but you're quite lucky, as I'm literally qualified to discuss this subject, and I'm also able to translate your comments into English!

A lot of them don't, these days. Have a Sapphire brand RX 480 that do not spin up unless it hits 60c. Silent at idle.

I have a 970 that does the same (Zotac, I believe).

It's a really tough choice between these three cards, imo.

1060 6gb, 1060 3gb, and 970 3.5+.5.

I kinda feel like the prices will continue down a bit, edging the 970 down to 150, the 1060 3gb to 175, and the 1060 6gb to 200...

The 480 will follow suit, but it's got a weird market issue that it has 3 cards that are in a virtual deadlock.

470 4gb, 470 8gb, 480 4gb, and 480 8gb are essentially within 5% of each other. Yet they are priced as unique price points.

So, you can almost discard everything but the 470 4/8 gb cards when considering. Until prices stabilize at least.

rx470 at this price 4gb ram and better performing in dx12 down the road

Depends how desperate you are as there are bound to be price reductions between now and Christmas. I have just bought the 970 because I own an XBox One and that is where I do the majority of gaming, but I wanted a decent card for the limited amount of (Flight Sim) I will be doing on my PC. Seemed pointless to keep stretching and stretching (I started off looking at a 750ti a few months ago, then went to considering a 950,960 and finally thought 970 why the heck not?). I did consider the 1060 3 and 6GB but it's another level for me and not sure I could justify the extra expense considering I was stretching it for the 970 and for what I need it would be overkill I think.

For anyone interested, this card is now back in stock and Amazon are once again selling for £179.99.

Got mine and has been dispatched already. :-)
Another new seller is charging £170 on amazon using the same link, when they first setup their shop on the 9th of September they had them up for £160 and i managed to buy one before they changed it to £170, cracking price.

I had trouble with my 7950 from day one with noise and performance. I will never go amd again, this is a tempting price to get back with the green team. I don't plan on going 4k for a while as my 1080p monitor is only a couple of years old. Ironically, I got it to take advantage of the 7950. Haha, won't be that naive again.
