Can someone make a RAM upgrade guide?

I noticed that it is very hard to get to the RAM in this desktop. I don't wanna mess anything up myself by removing every single part until I get to what I want.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is your ram hard to access or is the problem trying to remove it?

It is hard to access. There is a heat pipe above the slots and I don't feel comfortable removing it and the cpu heatsink myself. Everybody else just shows how to get the gpu rack out and open the case which I already know and have done

@reddst in that case, 2nd suggestion. put an extremely fast SD card into the built in card reader (if there is one), or via card reader into a USB 3.0 port (if there is one). Dedicate this SD card to Windows ReadyBoost. There is a noticeable performance boost, albeit not on the level of RAM or SSD upgrade.

@reddst , Here is a g20 disassembly video.

The main target of the video is to change the hard drive, but it will help you also to get your tower open so you can access the RAM.

This doesn't help me, as said in a comment above it is hard to access. There is a heat pipe above the slots and I don't feel comfortable removing it and the cpu heatsink myself without knowing what I'm doing.
