Installation of CC 2.0 in V4 PS2, Need advice.
I've been using my soldering iron for years without any problems, but installing a Crystal Chip 2.0 into my Version 4 PS2 this has been making me scratch my head.
First off, was the chip supposed to come with wires and a manual? If not, what type of wire should I be using? Solid Core or "Rope Style" wire? What gauge?
I've read elsewhere in this board that the ground and power wires need to be a larger gauge than the rest. How big should they be? Are we talking wire like those used for IDE power cables?
Also does positioning or wire length matter for choosing where inside the PS2 that the CC should be mounted? Is it ok to just choose an unobstructed space on the motherboard?
When it comes to soldering connections, I can handle the spots on the CC itself, but how do I solder my wires onto those teeny tiny pins on the sides of the chips? See picture below for an example.
I greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!:dance:
