    I am about to buy the Magic 3, (since the Masiah 2 is on backorder) I have a few questions.....

    1. I know that you must solder wire to and from board, Where do you set the chip and how?

    2. I been reading with people having problems with the reset/power buttons, how/what do you do to avoid these problems?

    3. Want to share any tips?

    Thank you So very Much!

    if you go to www.modchip.ca, they have instructions on how to take apart your PS2 and also a diagram on where on the main board you'll have to solder the wires to. The latest Magic (I believe) only requires you to solder less than 10 wires. (as opposed to 20+)

    Anyways, check out the installation instructions on that site.
