So I had a twin fami that worked well and I decided to recap it. Easy enough, everything gets swapped out and I double check things like polarity and solder joints before I decide to fire it up. Well when I went to boot it, the power indicator flashed briefly and then nothing. A few hours go by and I can't figure out what's wrong. I had just about given up when I found that the 2 ram chips TMM2015BP-15 get super fucking hot. This is an obvious sign of a short/bad ram and so now I'm trying to figure out how that happened. I also noticed that my junk neo mv1fz has two ram chips with the same pinout and what seems to be similarly matching specs. Would swapping in those be an option? I'm tempted to try but I worry that I'll just fry some more ram.
