    ..And I am interested in soldering it in my NGC. I bought it in March 2008, never got around to installing it, and later assumed it was thrown out (I even have old threads on here about it). However, I just happened to find it again (obviously), and I have some time to kill, so I was thinking about giving it a go for the hell of it.

    My only concern, aside from messing up the whole process itself, is that the chip might be too old.. It is still in its electrostatic package, but I'm not sure how well the actual shelf life of modchips fare, and if I shouldn't even waste my time with it because of that.

    Electronics tend not to have a shelf life unless you have a battery in it or they are raw chips you stored in humid conditions. Sitting in an electrostatic is absolutely fine. I may have to revise this opinion if you are going up to the decades and using liquid electrolytic capacitors or slightly shorter timeframes and using BGA but none of that applies here.

    You are more likely to have to blow the dust of the lens in the gamecube.

    Honestly what do you have to lose? NGC's are pretty cheap.
