I was so angry at my PS2 the first day I tried soldering that I ordered a chip clip carelessly from modchip.ca . I was angry because the damn connections wouldn't stick. After ordering, I noticed the clip didn't cover all of the tough connections. I contacted modchip.ca to cancel the order. Let's say they didn't much care for the email. I got the clip. Fine, a few less connections to solder couldn't hurt. Turns out the damn piece that goes over the bios chip is too big. WTH?
I have a version 2. I'm gonna buy some flux and skip the clip. Wth is up with this clip though?
