Hi, I am going to be getting a Xeno GC modchip for my gamecube. Need some advice on how to solder it. I am kind of a noob to soldering. I don't think I will be doing a wired solder, but just soldering it directly to the board like it is designed to be. I have a 30 watt iron and some rosin core electrical solder. Do I need to heat up the solder points of the chip and board with the iron before I actually apply the solder to solder it? Could it damage it? Also, when I solder, can I put some solder on the tip of the iron and solder it that way? The gauge of the solder wire is too big to actually touch it to the points.
