Tried my hand at my first mod. I was planning on changing the blue LEDs in my Phantom to red ones. Started with the easy ones, the power and hard drive LEDs. Simple enough, just de-soldered the old ones and re-soldered new red ones on. Sloppy soldering but they work. Then came the monster job for the fan controller LEDs. These are on a small circuit board and I had LOADS of fun trying to de-solder them and clean any excess off before soldering the new ones on. After just about ripping my hair out, I finished, only to find that half of the lights are working now >_<. Oh well, I suppose I at least got the experience now...
oh yea, soldering on a small circuit board can be difficult. I recently tried fixing a broken headset by soldering in a different in line volume/mic controller thing. I was unsuccessful. The headphone wires so are sooo tiny.
you might want to pick up some de-soldering braid if you dont already have any. It works really good to remove unwanted solder.
I have a de soldering bulb. That was another problem. The tip is so blunt
yea, I have never tried using a de-soldering bulb but I can attest that the braid works really good.
well, HOPEFULLY I will get a new board for the fan controller at the end of this month. Seem's kinda odd that all I had to do was ask for it....
well, no email, no fan controller, no nothing. Tried two more times to contact NZXT and never got any response. NZXT has the worst customer service in history.
