Thanks a bunch everyone! With all the recognition I've gotten with this teardown I decided I would redo it with pictures taken on a proper DSLR and more of them and more indepth captions for the individual steps, I may even make some replacement guides!

Is that a second mSATA slot I see on the left side of the motherboard underneath the large ribbon cable?

Indeed it is! it functions too, the stock is beneath the cable, the unpopulated is the exposed one, that i had installed an Mushkin atlas in and started using without a hitch.
