I did the same thing, and i had to hold the braid and iron on for quite longer that I would've liked to. I used a 15 watt soldering iron and had no probs.

Here's a great tip. Apply some solder to those LPC points to make it raised up. Then put the braid on and heat it, and it will flow into the braid MUCH easier.


Good luck.

thanks for the tip

roughly how long did you hold the iron and braid to the holes? did you have to go from both sides of the mobo? thanks

i did just one side (the top) although i tried the bottom. Some of them took a long time. It was an hour + project.

you know your done when it smokes a little and the braid starts to turn silver. Once you get going its like 10 seconds...but some took like 20 seconds.

If you can get a "solder sucker" they work great for ver 1.0's. Just heat one side of the hole for 2 seconds and hit the trigger on the sucker from the other side of the board, and...... done. All the holes can all be perfectly cleaned out in under a minute.
