    De-Soldering plugs.

    Ok,

    I want to try something different on my next build, and to do so I need to de-solder the 20 pin plug iirc? and the cpu power plug/s on a motherboard..

    I'm a top soldererer but never had to de-solder anything.. (I solder 8 hours a day for my job)

    So far all I have used is the solder wick.. Is a solder sucker better or a constant suction as 350 or so deg is not good to have on a board long..

    Finally what could be the consequences of putting iron to board?

    I don't want to spend $ on a new board to have it @##$'d

    foR

    PS

    I have just spoken to an electrical engineer that shares my works building with, solder wick is NO and a suction/iron station is the go..

    But in saying that a mobo is what 6 layers? and you have to have EVERY pin free to get the plug out and you wont know what pin is loose or not and also risk damaging the inside of the hole (forget the correct name he used)

    Like you said, it's going to be pretty painful to get the socket out. Are you looking to replace it as well? Or are you going to solder the wires directly to the holes afterwards? If you are looking to just remove the plug in whatever methods possible, you should just cut up the socket with an x-acto knife and then remove the pins on a pin by pin basis. If you are looking to keep the plug intact, you might be best off doing this anyways and then buy a replacement socket.

    As an addendum, do you guys have a hot air rework station? That would make life a lot easier

    You want a bigger iron (80w or above) and a desoldering plunger tool (even a cheap one)
