    Removal of Modem potential problems???
    Ok, so i'd like to remove the modem-board (and its shield thing) to increase airflow in my laptop, as i will NEVER ever use it.

    Will this cause any system problems/crashes or will it be just fine (haha not for dial-up, ovbiously)???

    Just leaves the blank spot on your logic board is all. Keep it may need it back in at time of resale.

    Ok cool.

    yeah i should keep it i guess.
    When i do, i'll prob. resell 'as is' and just say the dial-up modem was removed...
    dunno yet.

    can't wait to do the custom copper-shim for the heat sink though!! yeah i'm sick of leaving the computer on this stupid fan-contraption.
