    1. You would need around a 15-30 watt soldering gun with a sharp tip.
    2. You would need iron rosin core.

    Soldering the wire to the micro-pad. ( walmart IvoiceIII )

    1. Pre-coat the wires tip with rosin core.
    1a. To pre-coating the tip, fix the wire on your table, heat the tip and feed some rosin core solder to coat the entire tip. This procedure should not last more than 2 seconds. After this coating, the tip should look shining. If not, do it again after 10 seconds or longer
    Don't go further without a perfect pre-coating of the wire's tip.

    2. Pre-coat the pad on the motherboard , or the part you want to solder.
    2a. Point the iron's tip to the pad, touch and heat it and feed to it with some rosin core solder immediately. This procedure should last about 1 to 1.5 seconds only and you should then see a shining silver drop on the pad. If you did not see such a drop, do it again 10 seconds later. Don't go further without getting a perfect pre-coating of this pad

    3. ) Aim the pre-coated wire's tip to the pad and hold it firmly with your left hand. Then let the iron tip touch a little bit of rosin core solder, point it to the pad, touch and heat them for less than 1 second. It is done.

    If you solder the part longer than 3 seconds you will burn it.

    The wire size

    Use a 22 to 26 gauge wire for this project.
