Need help with making custom copper semi-fullcover waterblocks "HD6970 GPU + Motherbord" with CNC Milling Machine - Page 2

As long as the cap wasn't damaged when it came off (damaged as in the cap busting) then it should be fine to solder back on. That kind of capacitor can be soldered on in either direction I believe.

Hi. This did understood. xD
But can you please reformulate with simpler words, I'm not good in english, I live in Norway...
I don't get this blushsmiley.gif :
"noticed the hunk of copper.. too bad.. a .250" and wider to collect the memory
cooling feature.. noted it was a mid cover.. but no love for the memory?
all processor cover and slapping fin stickers on the memory is counter-productive."

also the 20 watt soldering iron should be ok just be careful and try not to apply to much heat .
You don't need to read it all but it will help with the understanding of what you are working with , Capacitors
Basic soldering tips
I am not a electronic guru but I do mess around from time to time and like you my field is mechanical (auto tech by trade) but its good to learn new things and even better to be able to repair one of your own boo boo's thumb.gif

Thanks for the link!
I'm I getting mad when I can't fix my own boo boo's. So when I try to mod something that is in working order, than it gets boo boo.
Did get right meaning of boo boo? laughingsmiley.gif
I think I would hang myself I if I crack my phones screen and I was not be able to replace screen myself, or if valve or a piston cracks.

I have looked under a magnifying glass, and it seems like that capacitor is bulletproof thumb.gif
Thanks
