Yes, I talked about that in the video. But there are a lot of small cables to disconnect, including the front LED screen and I have to assume there must be an easier way. This unit is basically the same as the TANK 03. But the TANK 03 is so much easier to access RAM and storage (no tools required.) The way I was going at it, I assume (and I hope) is backwards.

I sent barry a PM about it. Hopefully they already have or can easily create a video showing how to get into it, or perhaps they could provide written instructions for the time being, at least until a video can be made.

I fully agree. It would be the worst possible design to access the mainboard from the bottom of the device, because RAM and M.2 SSDs are located at the top side of the mainboard.

Did end up ordering from amazon tonight sense the US site was down but it did come back up after i ordered 🤪 But amazon had the 2 coupons for 826$ off first herd that from Carey stream couple days ago hehe. But yea 1799$ which has too be a error lol.. but it still comes to the same price with taxes for the 3070 model on the acemagic us site with their 35% coupon. So yea wasint worried lol..

I wanted the 3080 model sense day 1 but it never came back in stock or even was in stock on the US site not from what i can see lol.

And sense the site was down till hours ago i didint want too miss out on the amazon coupons lol..

Now did i need it?? noo... :lol: i have a monster of a desktop with a 7900xtx already But i wanted too have it cause it looks cool 🤪 and theres nothing like it lol.. And carey made me get into mini pcs from watching all his videos and streams hehe :D

Also has anyone found out how to get into it easyier yet ??? While watching carey video i was thinking it has too be a way threw the top? Now ones that has this right now is the light strips plastic or rubber? If rubber i would think there is a screw under it like the bottom feet for the wings?

Would be a pain if you have too take the whole bottom out 🤪 which im hopeing is not the case lol. Forsure will check into it see what i find when i get mine Thursday tho ;)

I am still patiently waiting for a response regarding how to upgrade the RAM and SSD on the M2A model...

I know he's read my PM. Maybe you should reach out to him directly, at barry@minipcunion.com.

I'm sure Barry is already looking into this issue and no further emails or PMs will be useful.

From my perspective, today's graphics driver release had a higher priority.
