Re: [PLUG] OT: soldering on the motherboard

Less is more, tinned clean tip, 25 - 40 watt range, let the iron warm up completely. Tin the iron, let the solder metal, make contact with the board, watch the solder start to flow, and then apply as little solder as necessary to fill the gap.

Connections should be shinny, not dull, smooth flow, not globed on. 

I'm a former MIL-STD-883 solderer. 

See MIL-STD for and even better description.

Have fun good luck.
