Magic3 w/clip V7 -->Need Help!
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
ok now once you unscrew the top plate the bottom plate should new be (note: both top and bottom plate are held together)
once all the screws come out then the bottom heat sink can come off but you may find that it a lil stuck, the rubber melts and it gets stuck the moition engine (cpu) it may take a lils strengh to pull it off but it should come off
