    has anyone tried it? any negative effects?

    I am almost tempted to do this. The ticking / grinding noise is really starting to get to me...

    I haven't tried that, but you can try it yourself, it will not void the warranty and can be done in ten minutes. Just make sure to sort the screws for the bottom case, I used a piece of paper and some scotch tape and put them onto the paper and taper at the original position.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I thought the screws were all identical and the bottom case only goes on 1 way...

    There are two different screw sizes and they are very small and I once read about that tip and used it since then. It does not need to be an A4 paper, it can be smaller or none.
