today i got a xbox from one of my customers who tried to install a X2L to override the f*cked tsop.he installed the pin header and the install looked clean but he put the chip the wrong way around on it.he told me that it made a loud noise and the chip smoked when he turned the box on.so i tried to install a new x2 but this doesn't help.the traces are looking good and check good.why is the box still fraggin?could the wrong placement of the x2 have blown away the mcpx?
