ordering modchips my money order + questions
ordering modchips my money order + questions –
Im planning on ordering the magic 5kx. anyone know a site that ships modchips to Canada and accepts money order as a payment option? ive found either sites that do but dont have the cip or a site that has the chip but only lets me pay by money order.
also ive been reading some modchip soldering/installation guides and saw them talk about flux paste. Exactly what is it and how does it help solder?
thanks in advance
Using a credit card is much faster and the money cant get lost in the mail. I'd just use one. Heck, even debit cards work online. Atleast mine does, because it's a Visa.
nag your parents to use their credit card...

Flux paste can be added to clean the joints. When your iron melts the paste (along with the solder) it will boil off along with any impurities.
It isn't necessary since most solder includes flux built into it. It helps when soldering to parts that are exposed and untinned, though, like BIOS pads, since the flux from the solder doesn't get on the parts quick enough in that case.
Please do not use any flux that isn't listed as either "no clean" or "rosin". Acid fluxes will eat through your circuit board and wreck it in a few months. If you need to clean up flux, rosin flux cleans up with isopropyl alcohol, and acid flux cleans up with water (another reason it sucks!) No clean fluxes can be just about anything, but since they don't require cleaning, it doesn't matter.
