Hi everyone,

Regarding the U10 Relocation. I saw that we need to remove part of a trace on the motherboard. The photos and guide I saw online werent the best pictures for such a critical moment, lol. Just wanted to confirm...All I need to remove is just a portion of the trace (A couple mil) to the left of where it says "U5"? Photo for reference below.

I asked this question earlier and Noah responded:

No, it's not needed after the board is trimmed. Cutting the trace is only needed if you relocate U10 BEFORE trimming. Otherwise there is no need, hence the reason for it being absent from the manual.

So, unless you'd like to test it before trimming it, you don't need to cut the trace.
