    Nintendo Rumor or is it???

    Hi All, I just got a new NTSC Wii 3.3U and was thinking about a modding the case, but my Brohter in law which has been in the Wii scene for a while told me the Nintendo guys have been putting some type of resin in the case so when you open the case it leaks this resin all over the board making the Wii unusable...... Has anyone heard of anything like this?? Has this happen to anyone?? Let me know cause I really want to crack this box open.

    Thanks in advance

    walk up to him, and smack him for being that stupid =P

    they put epoxy over the drive chip, its somewhat easy to remove, but its only about modchips, if you want to change the case you can do so, they dont care xD

    It's a nifty experience. You'd never imagine that eye glasses sized screws can hold together a console.

    Wow this just makes my jaw drop lol, you can heat gun the epoxy off of the drive. A resin that ruins the drive? That is just absurd lol

    No, its worse, they have now placed the Wii Drive such that if you open up the Wii the laser from the drive will hit you in the eyes and blind you.
