    Default New '0 wire' chips on already chipped machines...

    Gday,

    As you may have read elsewhere on the forum, I have a PCBioXX chip currently in my machine which, unfortunatly, doesnt work. Dont know why, resoldered points, it flashes correctly, etc. With all these '0 wire' chips now available, I figure I should dump this (as it blatantly is broken somewhere) and switch. My only problem is will the '0 wire' chips work on a mobo thats been soldered on? (ie, how sensitive to an even surface are they?)

    Any ideas?

    depends if the solder job was good,

    cos u can take the solder off using solder de-braid (whih is advisable) , make sure the solder points are not bridging to any other points and u will be fine mate.
