After removing 4 screws on the rear shell of the SSD, you need to be bit careful when you’re pulling the plastic cover since there’s a large strip of the thermal pad. The PCB is not screwed on the other half of the shell, but it is stuck on it with a help of another large strip of the thermal pad.  The adhesive is bit strong so if you have any intention to void the 3 years of the warranty period, exercise some caution.

As you can see, there are 6x NANDs on each side, with 2 empty space on each side of the PCB.
