-[* black] Pulling the back cover off reveals a myriad of components...

+[* black] Pulling the back cover off reveals a myriad of components ...
+ [* icon_note] ... most of which we can't actually access just yet.
+[* icon_caution] There's a strict and slightly perilous order of operations here. First out are two fans, but they remain anchored by wires with hidden leads. That midframe will have to come out before we can proceed further.
