Incredible X-Fi mod *WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY*, 56K WARNING - Page 56

post #551 of 979
I am practicing on a few right now untill I perfect it and then I will be offering my services for those interested. I have had the x-fi xtreme gamer and just had the opamps modded to fit the different orientation. What do you guys think a fair price to ask is (plus shipping of course)?

ended up ripping the solder pads right off the pcb and broke the traces. if you knew what you are doing you could prolly fix it but I'm not that good. hell I couldn't even desolder right

I ended up sleeping last night about 13 hours straight so I won't be able to look at the card yet till I get home from work today

I see the traces I'm just not sure how to get them to stick and make contact without bringing two different traces together and causing it to short out.

trace it to the leg of the component it connects to, then take a small length of wire and just connect the two points. That's all PCB traces are... they connect 2 or more points. In the right order mind you

never though of that, thought it makes sense as most of what I have done with solderi ng is point to point anyway. then guess some handy electrical tape can hold the ic in place

well as long as the other solder pads are there they would hold the chip in place. If need be you could hot glue it
