This is a step by step guide on how to strip your XBOX ONE down to all of its individual parts. It's surprisingly easy and much easier than the 360 was (which wasn't THAT difficult anyway)

Tools Required:

The Xecuter Unlock Kit v3 should work fine with this which includes the XCLAMP Unlock Tool & Clip Slider
You just need a Torx 9 Screwdriver (Unlock kit comes with T8 and T10)

Side panel clips are very similar to the 360 Slim. You can use the XCLAMP Unlock Tool for this.

The underside of the Blu-Ray drive is a couple of IC's and a large ribbon cable:

Samsung Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012 500 GB 5400 RPM with 8MB Cache SATA II 3.0Gb/s hard drive.
Newegg seems to have favorable reviews of this drive.

The RF Module board detaches outward from the lower case.

The back of the RF Module board features one lone IC from Info Storage Devices labeled 9160F1MS03 1327 2317B057. We believe this is an Audio User Interface chip from Nuvoton.

I am happy to report that, should your new Xbox One have cooling issues, replacing the fan or heat sink is easy.

All it takes is the simple flick of a spudger to separate the 112 mm diameter fan from the heat sink.

Is there a way to partition a hard drive as such the Xbox thinks it's an optical drive but also reads the data from it? All my games are digital downloads on an external HDD and I'd like to swap out the optical drive for my external HDD. Thanks in advance

Great tutorial. Looks really complicated lol. But that's probably because I have no idea what's going on.

Wow, that is crazy how simple it looks.
