Post Utilite Pro Disassembly
:D Hi all,

Heya, has anyone taken their Ut-Pro apart yet? I have not yet disassembled mine (yet.. usually by now it would be long since apart), and I would kind of like some pictures, video, or some type of guidance for when I do. I am sure that there are user accesable/upgradable connections once the case is open..

Please direct me towards afore mentioned direction for disassembly of my device.

I was considering at the very least additional sata/msata, or ssd drive expantion, and probly a new cpu heatsink... and see what else I can access from inside. I am actually suprised it is not more straightforward, as there are no screws or anything, just the 4 slots on the bottom sides, and the strange rectange with 4 other slots under tabs.

Any how some guidance on the right way to disassemble would be awesome.

To remove the top you simply pry the side gently out at the front and the back on one side. I use my fingers usually, but I did use a small paper clip the first time (I was feeling for a catch). Then tilt the top up and slide it off. There is a metal heat sink for the CPU. It is supposed to be wedged into the top, but one of mine came out when I removed the top. There is a conductive putty to help thermal transfer form the CPU, it may stay on the CPU, or it may stick to the heat sink. Make sure you don't mess it up and make sure the heat sink is aligned correctly when you go to put the top back on.

To remove the board from the base you first have to remove the WiFi antenna by removing the external nut and pushing it through the plastic housing. Next you just gently pry the slanted part of the white base away from the board and start to push the board up. Repeat on the other side and the board will come out of the base.

No screws, no adhesive, no hassle.
