While I was removing the u10 one of the pins broke off, so I'm just wondering if it would still work.
Yeah I was thinking that, just wanted to clarify before soldering down.That botched u10 should still work, those three pins are just connected to Ground, because you can short them and you'll still be fine(just those three pins though)
It's pretty clearly shown on the trimming guide. If you haven't trimmed the board yet follow the trace back to a via and you can check continuity with the pad to make sure you have the right one, cut the trace and ensure there's no continuity after the cut.Yeah I was thinking that, just wanted to clarify before soldering down.
Also another questions, could someone explain in more detail what trace am I cutting before soldering on the u10
Is the board trimmed?
Is there continuity between the solder blob and gnd?
Is there continuity between the input pin (not the one with the wire) to 3.3v?
Does 3.3v appear on the output pin?
Are you sure the trace is cut?
Just for future reference, that is 100% wrong. If any pins on the U9/10 are missing it will not work. We short those pins together because they need to be connected together, not because we can.That botched u10 should still work, those three pins are just connected to Ground, because you can short them and you'll still be fine(just those three pins though)
Most likely not, but it's possible. Try shorting the output to ground momentarily after turning the system on.(Also earlier I had my wire connected to the wrong gpu vias but now it's in the correct spot, could of that harmed the GPU in anyway?)
