Magic3 w/clip V7 -->Need Help!
my friend convinced my to try to put in his brand new Magic3 w/chip clip in his V7. Ive never done a ps2 (psx's are a different story), so i appologize if this question is absurd.
the Magic3 requires 5 solder points on the underside of the mainboard. On this V7, there is a metal plate (not the one with screws) covering the entire underside of the board with a big heat sync on it. It seems one needs to remove this plate in order to get to the 5 points for the L-Shaped board.
how do i get to these solder points? is this chip not ccompatible with the V7? is there a way to remove the plate?
any responses/links to other posts would be greatly appreciated
