opening stick 300 case / enclosure

Hi, i d like to build a heatsink and fan for my stick 300. I need to open the case,,, i ve had a lot of trouble finding resources online as nobody seems to have opened the case. i tried carefully prying it open but it feels like something will snap if i push too hard. thx a lot!

Re: opening stick 300 case / enclosure

I couldn't find any maintence manuals for this unit, probably because there aren't any interchangeable parts. I'll keep looking and see if I can find anything, but I don't think any manuals of that nature exist for this machine.

 

I feel like if you are careful enough with the prying, you shouldn't snap anything.

 

 

I should also probably state that it's not reccomended to open or modify the unit in any way.

 

 

 

 

 

I don't work for lenovo, I'm just a forum helper.

I think i ll just stick some thermal pads on it and build around... thx! i was prying pretty hard , it didnt feel like it was meant to be opened, i could always grind away the plastic but for now its my only system (apart from my phone)  and dont feel to comfortable with the idea.

Ok. Good luck!

 

I'm generally the kind of person that likes opening things, but I fell like these are specially designed not to be opened.
