This one is for you soldering experts out there I recently bought a 15w soldering iron and all the necessary items I will require to solder in a modchip. The other day I sat down to practice on an old video card that I had laying around. The question I have is this: are you supposed to melt the solder on to the board's pad (which is also made of solder?) without melting the pad? Or are you supposed to melt the pad and then add solder, effectively increasing the amount of solder? I also noted that it would probably be possible to just melt the pad and place the wire effectively without adding any extra solder. Am I totally off base here? Any help/advice would be appreciated!
