Well does it seem like it may work for a volt mod on a motherboard? I dont like the thought of me going at my PC with a HOT soldering iron. I read that heat can make caps, and transistors stop working but appear to be in perfect condition. Basically I don't want to leave the iron on the solder spot to long and brake something. This stuff claims to work using a match or torch lighter, I plan to use my soldering iron to heat the wire up to the solder's flow point this way I dont even need to touch any heat to the board. I am not 100% sure if it will work as I am having difficulty find detailed info on the product.

As to your soldering post Never heard of copper solder. Standard solder is an alloy of lead and tin. Various % depending on application. Lead free solder is widely available. Silver solder as well. It's the best for micro soldering as it has one of the lowest melting points and the the greatest resistance to corrosion and mechanical forces. Lead-free and silver solder will not leach out in distillation applications either.

Hope this helps.

The copper solder is the third product down in that last link... its just solder made for copper pipes in plumbing. Would you actually suggest a product like the first one for my situation or am I wasting my time?

if I remember right most solders used for copper pipe welding is not good to use for electronics. most the time it has a high acid content and start to corrode some metals. while on the copper pipe it works fine and doesnt' harm the copper at all.
