    Hi,
    I have a magic 3.5 I bought at least a year ago and I was just given a PS2 which looks like a Version 3.
    I'm hoping to get the PS2 working for myself...

    The board looks like the version 3 but has a gap on the bios chip. All the insturctions to install the Magic 3.5 and the clip are refering to a no-gap board.

    - Has 10 screws on the bottom of the PS2
    - Is SCHP-30003
    - Does not have the electrical risk warning on the bottom of the PS2
    - Board has GH-0006 written on it????

    I think this means I can't use the clip that came with the chip and that I have to install by soldering the wires.
    This won't be a problem except I haven't been able to find the diagram or instructions for this, after a long time searching google.
    I can solder and have the bench setup as I write this.

    I did find one diagram for installing a Magic 3.6 for Version 3 with a gap, but I don't know if the connections will be the same for the magic 3.5



    Will the chip fit?
    Can anyone with knowedge or experience help?, Please???
    Thanks,
