    Exceptional Heat Management for Ultimate Stability
    ROG G20 is designed with no visible side exhaust vents to keep the chassis' neat, clean lines. ROG G20 has an integrated thermal design that takes advantage of natural convection, and has a hidden airflow channel that ensures efficient heat management.
    The 1cm-wide airflow channel draws air from the bottom of the chassis ; while the GPU fan vents hot air out to the back of the chassis. Two additional internal fans and copper pipes further enhance heat dissipation through fins at the top of the chassis. All these little details help in keeping G20 cool and stable during marathon gaming sessions.
    Customizable 8-Million-Color LED Effects
    ROG G20 has a bold design that features a matte-black finish, aggressive lines, and Mayan-inspired markings. The chassis has customizable 8-million-color LED effects across three zones, allowing you to tailor them to reflect the feel of the game you're currently playing.
    There are also several pre-set modes:
    Multi-color cycle play: The LEDs will cycle through up to 10 different colors.
    Pulse effect: The LEDs slowly pulse every 10 seconds to mimic a breathing effect.
    Sound effect: The LEDs act as a volume visualizer.
