Asus ROG G20CB Review

 

Looks aren't everything, but they're a huge part of what makes the Asus ROG G20CB one of the best compact gaming PCs I've reviewed. Sure, the desktop's otherworldly design will impress your friends, but it will also keep the PC cool and sync up with...

Asus ROG G20CI review

 

A compact gaming PC

Small ; Nice design ; Good performance ; Good range of ports

Noisy ; Struggles to keep cool ; Difficult to upgrade ; Expensive ; Needs two power supplies

The Asus ROG G20CI is an impressively small, powerful and lovely-looking gaming PC. Unfortunately, a few too many compromises have been made to achieve the compact design.

Asus ROG G20CB

 

The Asus G20CB is a small form-factor gaming PC adorned with the Republic of Gamers brand – a name and logo usually found on laptops and motherboards.

Solid 1080p and 1440p speeds ; Modest noise output ; Dramatic, illuminated case

Some rivals significantly faster ; Inconsistent, slow SSD ; Poor peripherals ; Expensive

good value for what you get

 

I needed a secondary PC with good select parts that did not require me to build it myself. I was disappointed the bios and overclocking are limited, but, this PC runs very well, and is whisper quiet, with cool temps.
