    Perfect timing, I'm getting ready to start a large project and although I've soldered before, I'm not comfortable with it at all. Hopefully this will help.

    Great Yob!

    Thanks

    how would you solder something such as a variable resistor in or something to that nature? jw. I've looked through the guide before sry if I missed it now.

    because supposedly the pencil mod for the X1900gt rev2 only works for around 2 mins before the graphite either comes off or something.

    Nice guide! Usefull info...

    When soldering a hole mount I would stick the legs of the component through the holes and then bend the legs a little, so the component doesn't fall out.

    That's the only thing that came to my mind, your guide pretty much covers it all
