They both require the X-Clamps to be removed, last time i did that, i killed my xbox !!
Can the original clamps be taken off then put back on, or would i need to buy new clamps ?? If the former, i might try reflowing the Ram chips.
Also, whats the best tools for reflowing the chips ?? I dont have a heat gun and they are hard to come by in Ireland.
Well, you can use the old ones if you are carefull and don't bend them, keeping their original shape. Now, for the reflowing the RAM chips you can use a really powerfull hairdryer, but have in mind that it might not work. Use no-clean flux if you have available to help the hairdryer to reflow. Good luck...
