Yes, you solder to the points. Yes, it is easy if you don't know what you are doing. No, you cut your own wires.
If you don't understand the diagrams or have no soldering experience, i'd recommend getting a professional to install it.
also go with a ***$3, it is old but is better and more reliable....not the plus verison too.....right now the ***** has major issues and the dm$3 si the best.
What is wrong with the plus version?

what wire would you recommend? and once you soldered all the wires down how do you attach them to your chip?
and what would you say the best chip is?
again many thanks
Xbox is child's play compare to the PS2. But if you're up for it, get some wrapping wire at RadioShack.

Also, you'll have at LEAST 17 wires to do. I don't think any xbox chips require that many points.
well most of the poeple i talked to said they had dm$3 plus problems
okay i will google tha wire that i have to use it shouldnt be very expencive!
and i still need an answer were ii would be putting the wires once i soldered them on the mobo!
can anyone direct me to a tutorial that will tell me how to open the ps2 and see what version it is, and i pic of a chip, just to have an idea.
thanks once again for the great help, i really apricate it.
