    Guys, after reading copious pages of this thread, I still don't figure out where to buy SX Core at a decent price, delivered before 1 month e with a decent amout of certainty about not receiveing a stone or an empty box (paypal seems useless for this type of buy, the same for aliexpress protection... so what?).
    Can someone help?
    I've read some suggestions for YF-1GAME Store, someone has good feedback for them?

    I'm an emotional wreck right now. What a fucking roller-coaster.

    I nailed the initial install, nice clean joints... Booting fine. I'm a legend, celebrate with a couple of drinks. Time to reassemble.

    Then I realised that the anchor points go BELOW the frame. Fuck. Had a decent solder bead on them and there was no way the shield was going on the way I had it installed.

    I had some options, cut the shield to clear the solder beads, cut off the anchor points all together or try and flow the solder down to clear it. I chose the third option. Bad idea. Flashing blue... Waiting... Never goes green.

    I put too much heat into it and SP2 had let go. Arctic MX5 is everywhere. My only option was to desolder and try again.

    Clean the shit out of everything. I went way too hard on the thermal paste first time. It's a fucking mess. Can't even see the capacitor, I'm assuming I ripped it off.

    Suddenly through the mess I see the cap! It's still attached. It's time to fire up the iron again.

    I try a couple of warm up joints on the poor DDR3 ram I have been abusing as a test bed. I'm on fucking fire. Best work I have been doing yet. I decide that scotch whisky is like steroids for soldering. I'm rock solid.

    I go in hard, confident with no hesitation. I feel like a samurai warrior who has studied the iron like it is an extension of my own body.

    Fucking wrong.

    The solder isn't taking. I'm prodding around like a 15 year old trying intercourse for the first time. Everything is dry and I'm poking in the wrong spots. Very quickly everything ends. There is solder fucking everywhere. I swear to god I have bridged SP2 to the capacitor on the right. It's a fucking mess.

    For shits and giggles I figure I will plug it all in and see what happens. GREEN! Wtf? I dunno how but it's working.

    I'm dumping the NAND now but I am sure I fucked it up. It's the worst job I have seen by far and there is no way I'm posting pics of this fucking abortion of an installation.

    Wish me luck.

    I ordered yesterday thanks to Alramir's suggestion, might wanna DM him/her. Already got a confirmation this morning that it's shipped (paid extra for 7-14 days delivery time). I'll keep you posted when the brick arrives :P.

    I just want to give credit to @ModderFokker619 He did my Switch lite for me in an insanely fast turnaround and it's absolutely pristine. Works like a charm.

    If you're looking to outsource it, he's your guy (in the US obviously)

    After installing the SX core chip there is a slight bump on the back plastic plate of the console, right where the sx core nand sits. (Left side of the picture)
    If I cut the aluminium plate does bump go away completely? IMG_20200713_211512_copy_2016x1512.jpg
