Correct -- if you follow the Supplemental Procedure, then the chip will be powered by the PSU so we can indeed free up one of the Raspberry's 3V3 power pins and avoid the Y-split.

@CaseySJ so I'm going to take the plunge and flash my chip on the designare z390, however I noticed with the supplemental guide you posted you removed pin 8 from the SOIC8 clip. Should I just never connect that? If so, does that mean that I don't need the Y splitter for pin 3 and pin 7? Since if pin 8 isn't connected that frees up another power connection (so I could connect pin 3 to pin 1 (on the raspberry pi) and pin 7 to pin 17)
- Be patient with the procedure. Expect a couple of hiccups before the chip will be read.
- Attach and detach the clip very gently. There's fair bit of tension on the spring loaded SOIC clip.
- If you're near-sighted and wear glasses or contact lenses, remove them so your eyes can focus much more comfortably at very close range.
- If you're far-sighted and need glasses to see things up close, wear glasses or use a magnifying glass -- or ask someone with sharp near-vision to clip/unclip for you.
- Power down then Raspberry Pi when attaching and detaching the clip. If you forget to do this once or twice, it is okay, but the Pi will probably panic and reboot. As much as possible, power down the Pi when attaching or detaching the clip.
- If after repeated attempts you're unable to read the chip, stop and let us know. Don't force it.
