first time MI modder
first time MI modder –
so im i have the PsTwo slim motherboard on the table next to my soldering-iron.
its a v15a, i dont know where to put the chip, i soldered for bout 2 hours, and got 5 points solderded. i thought this seem good, and the points were good, but soon as i moved the chip (since it was two points under the chip, 3 cords went off. so i have to solder them back on (again) dunno how many times this has happend today.
nothing is burned, its just abit brown, looks fine, think it will work if i remove the chip.
anyway, if anyone has any tip for how to sold the best way in a v15a, please lemme know.
and if anyone has a complete installation pic of the motherboard, please lemme see.
tips and suggsetions on how to do it, and complete install pics. lemme see
please help me out
but uhm, the VIA's how to get them to stay on place? could it just be bad fluss and solder?
dont place your chip over top of a saulder points!! DUH...... and use flux to get a more secure saulder
I just finished my 1st mod a week ago. I used pieces of masking tape to hold the wires after they were soldered through out the process. I pulled out each wire out from the masking tape when I was ready to work with it to solder it to the chip. Afterwards all masking tape is removed.
Since it was my first install I left a little slack in my wires and didn't superglue/hotglue them all together onto the system board. Yes that would have looked nicer, however if I had a cold solder joint (one that lacks conductivity) then I could go back and resolder or even replace the wire with out having it too tight to resolder.
Thankfully I didn't have to resolder anything.
