MSI G60 4k 80 and upgrade-1100175

I’ve been doing a bit of research on the MSI GS60 Ghost laptop and I think i’m just about ready to start upgrading. From what I’ve gathered in forums as well as the MSI manual, the GS60 has two (type 2280) 80mm M.2 SSD slots and a single 2.5 inch bay. I just received the Crucial 512GB M.2 80mm SSD this morning and I have a 1TB 840 EVO SSD on the the way. Once that shows up, it’ll be time to tear the MSI GS60 apart.

Upgrading MSI GS60 4k 79 (3 of 4)

Looks like there are 15 screws total (red marks the spot) and from what I’ve been able to gather, gold screws are one size, the 4 at the bottom are another size, and the rest are identical. MSI has placed one of these screws underneath a warranty sticker which could be an issue. I spoke with a rep on the phone yesterday and apparently they have no problem with removing it, however i’m still waiting on an official e-mail to find out if this will void my warranty.

Once all the parts show up, i’ll be filming the upgrade and posting photos as well has screw sizes. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to partially remove the motherboard in order to get to the M.2 slots, which could be a little tricky. Hopefully I don’t end up destroying my brand new laptop.
