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.
Please note – This is a complex mod and requires some familiarity with the internals of the SNES console. PLEASE only order if you are confident that you can fit the part. We’ve now added a small FAQ to help with common installation problems, but unfortunately we cannot provide technical support with DIY installations, nor can we offer refunds for parts damaged due to misuse or incorrect installation.

This board includes everything required for the mod with as little soldering as possible. I'm not experienced in soldering and lifting pins, having only done mods on my Mega Drive, but with patience and a little luck i became a proud owner of a modded SNES. This install isn't too difficult, you just have to take your time, so be patient. All in all an awesome product, if it was a person i would be friends with it.
I ordered the PCB for my 1-chip SNES. The installation is relatively easy. Lifting the pins is quite stressful but with this board the wiring that needs to be done is minimal.
I can now seamlessly switch between 50Hz and 60Hz and play my SFC games. I love it!
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!
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!
