Finally decided on crystal for my V14
Well after much searching around, roaming forums, reading what people had to say and evaluating the info I could find on the web regarding the reasonably large selection of chips I could use on my PAL 75002 - V14. I've finally taken the plunge and ordered a Crystal 1.1.
This will be my first time modding a PS2, so a little scary. I have a decent iron and have spent a lot of time over the years building various little electronic projects and repairing radio equipment. So my soldering skills are decent and I have done plenty of soldered mods on later model Xbox's without ever a problem. So I'm reasonably confident that I should be ok with the PSTwo despite the increased level of difficulty.
Reading through these forums and others though, I notice that a lot of people seem to be blowing fuses when modding their consoles. Is this a ussually due to a lack of skill and care taken in the modding process, or is it just something that is real easy to do by accident?
Also are there any particular things that tend to cause difficulty, that I should be aware of before I do this install?
