after three long months i finally recieved my Framework on monday (12th gen, Batch2).
Besides some funky behaviour with my dockingstation and external monitors (probably Linux related), i am really really satisfied.
As i ordered the DIY edition, i had to open it up to provide my own memory and storage.
I repair notebooks as a kind of hobby, so i looked carefully at the guts of my Framework and found a few things.
There was a loose screw behind a cover.
Since it was sticking on there, it couldnt go anywhere, it did not short anything, but maybe over time it could have fallen off and caused trouble.
I still have no idea where it came from though…
A latch under the keyboard was flipped up
I found this on the second time i opened the machine and it seems like it didnt cause any trouble. Still it can potentially cause a bad connection.
This one didnt effect me, but I read in another thread that one or two people had bend fins on their exhaust, that were causing bad thermals.
I know i am nitpicking here, since there was nothing dramatic.
Still i want to encourage others to check their new hardware and provide the Framework Team with information to improve their QC.
