Those poster who said you should learn to solder are absolutely correct! Not only is it nice to have many skills, but it is extremely handy when modding and building pc's. Like just the other day, I'm working on sleeving my cables and struggling to get a wire out of my 24 pin connector. I give it a good tug and *pop* the wire pulls loose of the connector pin, which is now stuck in the connector. I mangle the connector pin while trying to remove it from the connector. I finally get it out and I'm like awwwww crap! I just screwed up big time! The psu I'm slowly sleeving is still running my computer and I don't have a backup. I rack my brain trying to figure out what to do. Then it comes to me. I have plenty of those connector pins currently on wires that are on extra cables that I am not currently using. I pop the wire out of one of the extra connectors and I determine the proper length that I need to cut to solder the wire to my broken wire on the 24 pin connector. Cut the wires down, strip the wires and make a nice clean solder, run the heatshrink over it and pull the cable sleeve over it and finish the wire and plug it back into the 24 pin. I was relieved and thankful that I had learned to solder some years ago! I saved myself the cost of buying another power supply or trying to find someone to solder it for me. Learn to solder! The day will come when you're glad you did thumb.gif

*ETA* get the 2 meter light strip, 1 meter sounds long enough until you start stretching it around your case!

soldering iron i have, may or may not be the same brand but its the same manufacturer that actually builds it.
http://www.amazon.com/Soldering-Station-Features-Continuously-Variable/dp/B0029N70WM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365428817&sr=8-1&keywords=soldering+station

extra tips

to clean the tips
http://www.amazon.com/Hakko-Cleaner-599B-02-Non-Corrosive-Needed/dp/B000PDQORU/ref=pd_sim_hi_6

for soldering you'll want to keep the tip as clean as you can.
never leave the tip hot without solder on it.
when turning off and storing away the iron, leave a nice amount of solder on the tip to protect it and keep it clean.
before making a solder joint or pre-tining anything. clean the tip, apply more solder, and start soldering w/e it is you need.

i would also reccomend some helping hands, this will make things a lot easier.
personally i dont care for them having a soldering iron holder because the entire stand will just fall over.. but you can unscrew that part

Indeed, IPS monitors normally cost an arm, leg, and the soul of your firstborn child.
