Hi, I just got a Apple chip for my 39001 (V7) PS2.
when I disassambled the PS2, following some instruction I found on modchip.ca, I got all the way to removing the system board. but the I don't seem to be able to remove the heat sink easily. No one talks about how to remove the heat sink, so this shouldn't be that hard. I just don't want to force it off. Can someone tell me what's holding the heat sink in place and what's the best way to get it off so I can access to that side of the board.
I guess I was okay on soldering, I finished on side of the work then realize I need to access the other side. I had to remove the chip for now, and my PS2 still works.
