Soldering Technique –
I heard around that for very tight points that are hard to solder and stick, when the connection is actually made, it's possible to add a bit of glue over the point with a hot glue gun.
Is this acceptable? Can it be done without harming anything?
Also what techniques does everyone use out there?
Usually mine are, apply flux to the point, add a bit of solder to my wire and solder it right to the point with flux and it sticks excellent
I usually clean the boards with anti-static alcohol cleaner. Then add flux to what I am soldering, tin wire and stick. For any spots like the pads by the bios...I will add solder to them to help with good connection. A hotglue gun will help hold wires in place and will not hurt anything. That just boils down to preference. Good luck...happy modding!!
Thanks for the comments.
Is it ok to actually glue over the point, or is it better to just glue the wire down to the bored, right before the actual end is where the connection is made.
yes...it is ok to glue over you solder points. I've seen it done..it won't hurt anything. If you aren't to confident in your connections, it wouldn't hurt.
