    HIDevolution sent me the donations spreadsheet, 3 members who promised a donation still didn't make the payment so I contacted them with a reminder.

    Glad to see how well this is organized, not a single donation goes in the wrong place. Everything under control @Mr. Fox

    You make it sound easy, but that's a level of modding I'll probably never reach :D

    Yeah, I used to think the same thing. Finally decided to watch some YouTube videos for technique and with some encouragement from Brothers @Prema @johnksss and @t456 I decided to go for it. I bought a hot air/hot iron combo station and a few extra tools and, with some fear and trepidation I sucked it up, bit my lower lip and did it. I'm still 100% a noob at it. Practice makes perfect, but so far every effort has been a success. I'm still scared to try the super tiny things that I can barely even see with a 10x magnifying headset, but the fear of the unknown is gone now. Using the right technique, bigger things like BIOS EEPROMs are actually very easy, even with a cheap soldering iron. I have since removed and replaced 4 BIOS chips and added extra MOSFETs to three GTX 980M GPUs. Because they are so expensive, I still sweat bullets working on 980M cards. It's a shame most of them are gimped and assembled with poor quality components.

    I'm not planning on donating any money this time but I have donated a ton of money to Prema in the past, I'm glad to see that other people are generous as well. Prema really deserves it. :D
