4 out of the 5 required holes for the SpiderGX are plugged on my xbox. It looks like the plugged holes are full of some black stuff, is that the lacquer?. Using lacquer thinner what is the best approach for clearing the holes? By this I mean, should I get dapping lacquer on the hole for a few minutes and then use a wire to try to clear it out? Should I dap and poke? How much lacquer can I safely apply to the motherboard?

BTW .. this chip suxs. If I had known it would be this bad I would have not went solderless.

I used a metal guitar string (0.010) to remove the lacquer. 15 minutes was enough.
