Guide feedback request; T420 keyboard and RAM replacement
While I did not replace these parts with better ones, I still consider these replacement guides.
For the keyboard guide, my main purpose to get in there was to clean the heatsink out. It was running louder then I like with this particular Thinkpad, even after I repasted it with Artic MX-4. At this point, it was clearly a dust problem. I called it a keyboard removal guide since you need to remove the keyboard to get to the fan. I also figure most readers will use it as a keyboard replacement guide, but I also mentioned that you can remove the keyboard for improved system fan access when cleaning the dust out of these systems. This is probably the best way to get to the fan, minus tearing the system down to the midframe. The guide can be found here: T420 keyboard
I may be able to take better pictures with a new (or gently used) keyboard, since this keyboard may have problems due to being so heavily used. 30 of the keys are heavily worn out and 17 are worn out or coming close to becoming heavily worn.
The second guide is the memory. This was a guide I made while I had the system apart since you pretty much have access to everything outside of the processor at the point I had it torn down. The RAM was pretty much there, so I could quickly take ~6 new pictures and reuse the ones from the keyboard removal guide. I still need to work on a few things, but seeing as I recycled most of the pictures, it's really more to the point I have to correct a few things and make a intro, at the most.

Is this a worthwhile discussion?
