    I doig this install right now and got stumped. Always I am sure that my groundwires are always a good connection before testing the machine- I'm a little confused by the 'ground directly to board' instructions given out by china magic. Are you supposed to scratch out a contact point on the board and solder-to-solder this ground or what?
    (below is the diagram link)
    Has anyone done this install yet?

    Yes I have seen all the diagrams. There isn't an actual open contact at that point, do I just scratch one in?

    I have never had to scratch in contacts before for an install, but this one has required it for the 8 back-board connections.

    Obviously this ground connection is really important to me [bold](new chip AND PS2)[/bold] - and I want to get it right the first time (without frying anything).

    Thanks for your feedback in advance.__X_X_X_X_X_[small]AMD Athlon 1800+

    not actualy fitted this chip myself but looks like you've got to clean of the board coating and solder it directly to the copper pcb below
