As the title states I'm just after some general tips or anything you dudes have for vmodding. I've read up on a few guides and know exactly what I need to solder and where it needs to go, but in practice I've found I'm not so good at soldering.
My previous 8800 GTS card died during the vmem mod because I had slightly bridged solder and it had hit another connection, instantly killing the card when I turned it on. I clean the area I'm going to be soldering on with alcohol before starting (and letting it dry of course) but I still find the solder doesn't stick to the surface very well and ends up being a pain to solder to. I've also found that a lot of the time my connections break and become useless.
Are there any little trips or tricks you guys have to help you along or is it really just a case of practice makes perfect?
I know to tin the tip of the soldering iron and such, so I thought I was doing it right, but I'm definitely doing something wrong. I'm finding the whole thing quite difficult to do with just 2 hands to be honest.
I have another 8800GTS sitting infront of me now begging to be modded, but I certainly don't want to be killing another one.
Thanks in advance for any help.
