I wouldn't really recommend using the Ace v3 on a Phat console.
CoolRunner Rev C/D is the way to go with them.

However, if you've already ordered the Ace v3, you can look here:
X360 ACE
The ace chips are a bit more complicated than the other ones. For them you will need a 22K resistor and depending on what version ace you have you will either have to remove a resistor or a diode. See the pictures below.

Install diagram
*For the install diagram below I have used an X360 ace V3 rev 2 board. If you have a different board, use this picture to solder the 1.8V point, the rest of the points D, F, C, 5V and GND are the same on all versions of the ace.

Thanks to JoinTheResistance for that.

I have a couple of ace v3's laying around, never really used them. But i just ordered some coolrunners, and 2 trinity xbox's.

Because i heard it is much easier to rgh a trinity with a ace v3.

Oh yeah for sure. Ace v3 is definitely so much easier on the Trinity or Corona.
But for Phat Consoles, I'd always recommend a CoolRunner Rev C/D.
