    1. Remove all screws from back.
    2. Remove keyboard (careful it has a cable connected), remove screws underneath keyboard.
    3. Remove backcover

    Something similar to this:

    i bought from gentech, apparently they have removed keyboard screws while apply thermal paste and didn't put them back.

    I'm on the verge of buying this laptop in 15.6", just deciding between the 144Hz FHD (1080p) or the 4K UHD. I primarily use a desktop rig, so the laptop won't be used nearly as much, but when I do use it, it will be used for both gaming and productivity. I'm definitely leaning toward the 144Hz, because at 60Hz I am much more likely to suffer motion sickness when gaming (I'm assuming the 4K is 60Hz), and also I'm not really seeing the point of 4K on a 15.6" panel. Other than that, the machine looks awesome. Any comments? I wish they still made 1440p panels, annoys me that nobody makes them for laptops anymore.

    I have the 4k version and the screen is amazing, especially for watching media. Personally I didn't bother with the 144hz since I don't play high FPS competitive games that benefit from those. I don't reach 144 anyway on the highest settings lmao. I don't think I can go back to 1080p, but the hit on battery life is noticeable.

    Yeah 1080p does feel like a step backwards - wish they made 1440p, it's such a good compromise, especially for 15.6" laptops. Good point about the battery too.

    To be fair, none of us are buying these things for the battery life.:biglaugh:

    Hopefully more panel manufacturers move to 1440p but I think since 1080p yields so well at the moment they are resistant.
