Hello everybody!

What wattage soldering iron should one use for a xecuter 2.2 lite wire install? I used a 15 watt before, but it tool a long time to melt the stuff. Is 30 too much power?

i have a 15 watt and it works fine, just use thin solder. i'd say anything over 20 and you could melt the mobo.

Yeah, you would rather take a little more time than to fry anything. I used 15W myself.

30w is fine, as long as you are steady/good. i don't like the 15w either.
