Budget reflowing,need help –
Hi, I have bought 3x PS3s, one CECHC04 and 2x CECHG04 for like 30 bucks, all three systems have ylod, rrod or something, I'll see when they arrive..
So let's start:
What I already have:
-ghetto style pre-heater for motherboard
-bottle of NC-599-ASM no clean flux
-heat gun with adjustable temp.
-infrared temperature sensor
-few bottles of cold bear and plenty of time
All I' know is this:
-use no clean
-preheat motherboard to 100°C
-slooowly heat up from 100-200c range because chip "dries out" and that prevents from RSX poppin' :?:
-use alu-foil around chip
What I' dont know:
-at which temperature to apply flux?
-what is the maximum temperature I' should go?(some say 205c,some says 215-217..and even 230-235 )
-which solder to use, leaded or lead free? also which are good from ebay,if any?
-how to make sure that RSX won't blow up?
btw, I have one more working ps3, I' had it reflowed to about 150c two weeks ago and it still works(no flux and shiat), was that even enough?(I' was a pussy :mrgreen: )
Any comments, suggestions are appreciated
