Do the ground mods and repin all the connectors and they are pretty reliable. The Pascal boards are great, you still need to repin connectors for reliability with the Pascal.

Quoted from Heaterguy:

I have a Genie, re capped power supply, did ground mods, cleaned all edge connections on boards, and installed a pascal sound board (sound was out) Worked great for about 4 months, now sound cuts out for no apparent reason in the middle of a game. Re booting/resetting game restores sound, only to eventually cut out again. Cleaned edge connectors, still having same issue. Any suggestions on how to clean the molex connectors? I scraped with a razor blade....

I clean edge connectors gently with green scotchbrite. Makes them nice and shiny again. It's typically not the edge connectors that fail, it's the pins in the housings that mate to them. If you look at the connector you can actually see the pins, I always replace them.
