Today, I will disassemble an MSI GE65 Raider. I will remove the bottom case to access the battery, M.2 SSD, Wi-Fi card, RAM, cooling fan, speaker, heatsink, and motherboard.
To access its internal components, the first thing to do is to remove all the screws that secure the bottom case. It is worth noting that one screw is covered by MSI’s warranty label, which means you can’t open the bottom cover privately. Otherwise, you will lose the warranty
