    I bought a small roll of 30 AWG wire from ebay. I found myself using all of it within a couple of days so I decided to get more but for some reason, there's none anymore. So I decided to look about and I saw this.

    But this is SWG wire. Is there any difference?

    Is 30 AWG the only wire size recommended for modchip fitting? I remember using it to fit a PS2 modchip and it felt like it was cutting it close

    30 AWG is what i have always used for every system i've ever modded, including the PS1 back in the day. 30 SWG is going to be a bit thicker than 30 SWG. 30 AWG = 33 SWG
