Can't You Just Super Glue The Wire Instead Of Sold

|This just pop up in my head, and was wondering if it's possible or not?|
Not super glue, but you can use some hot glue over the hole with the wire. Keeps it in place better.
A lot of people use hot glue to keep the wires in place along the motherboard.

|well..shouldn't it still work as long as the wire touching the lpc?|
If its soldered correctly and working. You can't just line it up without solder and put some glue over it.
Here is an idea (credit to Xeero's work)

|I would HIGHLY recommend AGAINST it. Obviously with hot glue you'd have to glue the wire RIGHT up against the point. When waiting for solder to cool, the wire can separate from the point a bit and the solder will still conduct electricity. It will take MUCH longer for the glue to cool and if the wire separates from the contact even by a tiny bit there will be no continuity.|
Also, you'll be using much larger amounts of glue, it would be quite easy to pull up nearby globs of glue. Also if you pull too hard, you may rip off a nearby surfacemount, which will be much more difficult to replace than the soldering which you're trying to avoid.
On a sidenote, I use the glue on my PS2 installs for purposes of wire management; to hold the wires in a fixed position to keep it neat. It's easy to let 23 or 24 wires get messy, and managing them is key to a good install. I keep the glue as far away from the actual install points as possible. Say I need to go back and resolder something. Having to resolder THROUGH the glue would be messy as sin, and if I pull up the glue near the points I risk pulling up nearby wires, which may pull up nearby pads, traces, etc.

I myself wouldn't try it unless it was a "spare" xbox, but it seems to work for him!

Damn! That's some gorgeous work. I remember some wank trying to tell me that soldering isn't an art, and hot glue on a mobo is a "stupid" idea. Nice to see such a stellar rebuttal of an ignorant statement! Simply elegant!

I think you missed the key word here. 'Super' glue. lol... but nah super glue can hold like a tonne of weight with like one drop or so they say...
