Its done just need the pots and put it back in the case
Or your friendly local electronics component supplier.
its over seas for me dont want to wait thnks any ways
well get some more ?'s
which soldering iron
Weller® Marksman® 25W Soldering Iron Kit
15-Watt Soldering Iron with Grounded Tip
and do i need Tip Tinner/Cleaner Compound and Non-Spill Rosin Soldering Paste Flux
I go here for my 25 turn trimpots: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=4826370096D617F&N=4294824534+4294822513
I use a 25W iron, with a tip that I ground down a little finer. You could also buy a fine tip, but I'm cheap about things like that. lol.
As for a tip cleaner, I don't use one. I use a little flux, and a piece of wet sponge, that I put in a shallow container (like the lid to something turned upside down) with water in it.
Don't use a cleaner compound or tinner unless you have a really fancy $100+ soldering iron.
Just use a wet sponge. Trust me, its just as good and I was taught that in "hands on" electronics classes.
*update* Heh, I was typing when he said it.
okay so im most likely
get the 25-Watt Pencil going to see if they got it later today see how the tip is
and the flux
and would this Solder do 0.50oz. Standard Rosin Core Solder (60%-tin, 40%-lead), Diameter 0.032"
also should i get 50k for all the MODS or 10k for the VDIMM MOD
and i'll go with the wet sponge trying to save also
cuz I found this site for the posts there less but you need to have The subtotal of each item must be more than $4.99. To meet the request:
You can order a single VR from ALied, if you wish. Plus there search system is far superior. You always know what you are looking at. I'll pay the little extra for peace of mind.
And that's basically the solder I use. Both my iron and solder came from WalMart. lol.
Oh, and I didn't scroll down far enough to see the vMCH and vDIMM mods. Use 25turn trimpots, and just use the values they recommend. Like I said in the PM, I recommend Bourns trimpots. The Honeywells I have aren't as linear, and can get a bit touchy.
but I know the Bourns Mfr's part# and to pay 2 for one kind of hurts lol cuz there like .90 some at the place
also im going to try the VMCH MOD NB mod first see how it goes want to get 4GHz
doest it matter if there lead free pots ?
Not from a performance standpoint. Only from an environmentally friendly standpoint. lol.
LOL thought that much cuz where you get yours there only keep in stock the LF ones it seems
well going to radio shack at 10am when they open see if they got the things I need cuz walmart had a 25watt iron but looks like they took something out of it think it was something to do with being ROHS Compliant
think im getting them from where you get yours total oder has to be $24.99
whats a good gauge or awg wire to use for volt mods ? 30awg is the lowest I found also can get it at radioshack
I just cut up an old 40pin IDE cable, and used single strands from it. Solid core telephone wire works well, too.
well I already got 30 AWG wire from RS should that work Good ?
Should be fine. It's solid conductor, which is easier to use for soldering on a pcb.
to small K
already got some coming in mail
I know. I just realized Radioshack only had a 1K and 10K so I deleted the post. 1K is used for Video Cards.
well need to go back and get a lower heat solder got silver bearing solder 96/4 mofo dont wanna work
almost done so tired lol
got all the wires hooked up just need the pots and also put the mobo back in the case
crosses fingers, hope nothing dies
Looks clean dom
lets hope it works
Very good for a first time, DOM.
Let me guess, the third picture is actually the mod you tried first?
Vmch, Vdimm, Vcore last was Vdroop
should get the pots wenday day going use the p4 and some other ddr2 ram dont wanna kill anything first to test lol
You can tell you weren't used to how your iron works in that pic. One got a little warm. lol.
on the top of the mofset or by the mobo ? i think its the flux
i didnt get what the wiping was for thanks for telling me thats why i was having a hard time yesterday, i was letting it get all blk/brn. LOL
but well see if my dream comes true
