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.

by Neophytos on SNES Super CIC Board
Great little board

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.

by Milad on SNES Super CIC Board

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!

by Richard on SNES Super CIC Board
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!

by Harrumph on SNES Super CIC Board
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?

  2. fille1976 says:

    hi,i wont 1 for chip1 snes,but my country is not in.
    i’m from belgium,is it not possible to arrange this via paypal or so?
    i will send then after payment my address info to you.

  3. Retromania says:

    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.

  4. JCW says:

    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.

  5. SecondOne says:

    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?

  8. Harrumph says:

    Getting any re-stock soon? I have a 1-chip incoming in the mail…

  9. Avalanche says:

    Any updates? Thanks!

  10. Revan says:

    I’ve just ordered this kit for my 1chip-01 PAL console, I’ve tired checking the “Some detailed information showing solder points, chip locations etc” link but it seems the page cannot be found on the site?

    I’ve been asking a few modding services in Australia such as RetrofixAU and Retro Video Game Sales if they’re have actually done this mod just to go on the safe route as I have good soldering skills but I haven’t actually done any mods on a console before.

    • BuckoA51 says:

      Darn, looks like Assembler Games moved a lot of things when the site crashed. I’ll see if I can find that picture again.

      • Giacomo says:

        Yes that would be great, thanks a lot.

      • Revan says:

        Has then there been any luck finding the picture for the solder points?

        • BuckoA51 says:

          No 🙁 There were a few I found around the internet but not very tidy installations (lots of hot glue).

          • Revan says:

            Ugh hot glue, reminds of drakon. I’ve gotten in contact of a modder in Melbourne who said he might be able to do it. He has a youtube channel where hes done his own CIC but he’s never done a 1chip before plus this pre made board, he has asked just for photos with just the solder points.
            (if you can link them or if you want me to message your facebook account or something it might just help him a bit)

            I’ve asked him to make a tutorial video for it if he can do the installation, I just think someone who can a video tutorial on modding this specific board will immensely help everyone.

  11. Yorper says:

    On a SNES Mini, couldnt you just cut that huge fat trace pin 111 is connected to. Like where it thins out between 2 vias, then solder to the trace instead of having to lift the pin?

  12. Phil says:

    I really don’t understand the LED part of the instructions for this at all. I’ve done the rest of the wiring, and soldering, but the LED stuff so confusing. I’ve really no idea where to even start with it. The LED comes attached to the SuperCIC board via a red and green wire, but I’ve no idea how I’m supposed to now connect it to the controller port? Does it remain soldered to the SuperCIC?

  13. Dash says:

    Do you plan on stocking this again?

  14. David says:

    Hi! Just discovered this amazing board and already make an order 🙂

    – It’s needed to un-welding the actual quarz cristal in the 1chip version right?

    Thanks in advance!

  15. Diederik says:

    When is the 1chip variant expected to be back in stock?

  16. Sammy says:

    is the 1chip variant being restocked? been keeping my eye on it for a while.

  17. Alfredo says:

    Are these going to be back in stock? I need one for a PAL 1-chip console I just bought. I need it to play both NTSC and PAL games.

    Thank you!

  18. Jasper says:

    Hi there – couple of questions about this…

    Will this be back in stock?

    On a mod on a PAL 1-CHIP 01, are you saying that with this mod, there are no timing issues in 60Hz and LCD displays?

    What is the exact reported framerate with this mod installed in NTSC mode by OSSC etc?

    On this 1-CHIP, would I also need the de-jitter mod, unless I was having sync issues? Does that mod actually affect the frequency?



    • BuckoA51 says:

      A new version of the board is coming which will have DFO and dejitter built in, estimate it to be available early 2020.

      • Jasper says:

        ah that sounds amazing! thanks for getting back to me. i will hold off modding until then. will that give me the holy grail of stable 60Hz (or as close as an SFC at least) into OSCC on my PAL machine?
