The SNES Super CIC mod is the best way to modify your SNES or Super Famicom console to play all region games. You can change the consoles region by holding the reset button or, with these very latest SuperCIC boards, by using a button combination on the SNES controller. You can also switch between 50Hz, 60Hz, or auto-detect mode, allowing you to play compatible PAL software at 60hz, or at the speed originally intended. This mod has 100% compatibility with import games, even those with more sophisticated lock-out technologies.

Note:- Due to minuscule differences in video timings between PAL and NTSC consoles, users connecting modified PAL consoles to HDTVs (either directly or via an upscaler such as an XRGB) may experience stuttering/juddering during scrolling in games when playing in 60hz. This is not a fault with our SuperCIC boards (we’re just the only website honest enough to tell you it could happen). This does not affect CRT users, see this page for more information.Since the SuperCIC board for the Super Famicom Junior/1-chip consoles includes a replacement clock crystal, this mod is NOT affected by the scroll stutter issue.

We stock this upgrade for the original SNES and for the later revision, so-called “1-chip” SNES/Super Famicom consoles. 1 Chip consoles are later model consoles and all Super Famicom Junior and SNES Mini consoles. While all Junior/Mini SNES consoles are 1-chip (that we are aware of), most of the original design SNES/Super Famicom consoles are multi-chip. For more information determining which model you have, see this page.

Great Mod!

I recieved it today and installed it on my PAL SNES with 2 ppu's.
I don't have alot of experience with soldering small pieces like this, but after reading up on the installation process for several months, and following the instructions thouroughly i was able to successfully install the pcb on my snes and it worked like a charm! Thank you for a great mod!

Great pcb!

First time I attempted a mod of this caliber. The trickiest part is still lifting the PPU pins, no way around that, but the PCB makes is much less of a hassle overall since there is barely any wiring to be done, most solderpoints are made directly to the cartridge slot. Awesome job by Borti and Ikari on the board design!

    So if I understand correctly, the DIY board doesn’t come with the firmware installed?

      Paypal – No sorry, these parts are against Paypal T&C. You should be able to select Belgium as a shipping destination now though. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    You guys should really make an effort into trying to make this a bit more user friendly. I know my way into soldering quite good. But the schematics and directions to install this are almost non existing. The preparation and installing instructions are lacking any bit of extra’s, how can anyone feel confident about installing this without hours of internet research?
    While this kind of board should actually make the process more simple, I find the online videotutorials without your board to be much easier to understand. A shame, I would instantly buy your board if it wasn’t for this.

    I would be interested in purchasing a SuperCIC for 1Chip SNES but Luxemburg was unfortunately not listed as a country you ship too. Would there be a possibility to add it?
    Thanks in advance.

    S-PPU1 pin 24 was a bit of a pain, got the wire soldered to it in the end.
    I found it easier with two separate wires to PPU1 & PPU2.
    Can’t recommend hot glue enough, you don’t want those pins moving anywhere after you wire them up.
    Only problem I had was with LED didn’t understand where to solder the middle wire. As you look at the front of console on SFC I soldered it to the left contact in the end. ( )

    Aaaaand relax. Big grins now I have it installed. Very impressed.

  6. Matt says:

    Hi just wondering when when the 1chip board might become available as I would like to purchase it.
    Regards, Matt

  7. Eric says:

    Hey Matt, does the 1-chip version of this have 2 clock crystals so that each region plays with the exact correct timings?
