Inside Acer Swift 3 (SF314-511) – disassembly and upgrade options

There is not much to do inside of this laptop, mainly because of the soldered memory.

1. Remove the bottom plate

This notebook’s bottom panel is held in place by 11 Torx-head screws. After you undo them, pry the panel with a plastic tool, and lift it away from the chassis.

2. Battery

Here, you get a 53Wh battery. It lasted us for nearly 11 hours of Web browsing, or more than 9 hours of video playback. As you can see, removing it is a simple task, as it’s only secured in place by the will of God.

3. Memory and storage

Unfortunately, the memory here is soldered to the motherboard. On the bright side, the 16GB RAM we got works in quad-channel mode. As for the storage, there is a single M.2 PCIe x4 slot that supports Gen 4 drives.

4. Cooling system

Cooling-wise, there is a single heat pipe, connecting to a pretty large heat sink.
