Okay! How do I use this shit!? Anonymous 07/19/2020 (Sun) 23:26:18 No. 1171 [Reply] [Last]
A time ago my brother brought me a SMD Rework Station, to help me on repair our things. But, HOLY SHIT! WHY IS SO HARD?! Everytime I tried ended up with me burning the component or the board, or both. I tried to decrease the air or the temperature but the result end being the same. I know that I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what is.

>>1172 How much time I need to remove a SMD? It doesn't hurt the component?
usually like 20-30 seconds if you have a good setup. if you don't have a good setup you should do a ghetto preheat by waving the gun around quickly all over the board. like I said, you want the board to be nice and warm (~70-80C) all over so you won't waste as much of your heat into the big copper pours on the inner layers. if you just jam the heat on full blast to a cold board you can end up with the top of the component scorched at ~400C while the solder is still only like 170C (SAC305 needs 220C-245C to melt) on the connections to the board since the heat just keeps bleeding away into the copper. you will learn to hate ground planes with a fiery passion, seriously fuck emc compliance and all that garbage, fuck controlled impedance, fuck dcr. components are typically packaged in some sort of plastic package. if you solder it fast enough you can get the terminations up to 220/245C while keeping the silicon on the inside under it's critical temperature. like 140-160C or some shit maybe, forget exactly at the moment and it varies per-component.
>>1171 Hi I work in a smartphone repair shop. Depending on the size of the board, sometimes you need to hold the hot air a FEW MINUTES on the board just to heat it up enough to melt the solder. and don't worry about overheating; if the solder isn't melted yet, that means the board hasn't even reached solder's melting point temperature. I suggest setting your hot air temperature around 350C, watching tutorials on youtube and PRACTICING on garbage dead PCBs.
>>1187 Thanks bro

Is there a list of AMD motherboards that let you disable PSP from BIOS?

So, I'm finally tired of being a slave of windows and I want to get into linux. I really love KDE Plasma but it is just a DE from what I could understand, and I must choose a distro before. What's the best distro for someone who can't even use git? I don't want any botnet crap btw

>>680 I had linux mint debian edition back when it was still offered, went to normal linux mint, got fed up with not being in the mainline distro packages so went to devuan because of the anti-systemd memes, then discovered you could hold back and purge systemd packages and use init instead on debian, which is what I am using recently. Learned a lot by the way.
>>680 If you want something that just works Kubuntu is nice. However switching to Arch on my main machine when I was a newbie taught me so much. Even if you switch back you will just know so much more than if you stuck with Ubuntu.

>>680 Gonna recommend Fedora here. It's what Linus Torvalds uses and he invented the Linux kernel.
>>680 For new comers I always recommend Pop_Os. It's pretty much Ubuntu with a bit more polish. It comes with your blobby drivers preinstalled so no need to tweak anything and has decent battery optimizations for laptops. Obviously, systemd and proprietary nvidia drivers means it's backdoored, but that's not something new user should worry about right away
I use Manjaro and I don't know shit about linux. They also actually help you if you don't know how to do shit and they don't have massive egos like just because linux you have to know everything about it.

I Want to Host an Infringing Website Anonymous 07/09/2020 (Thu) 09:33:35 No. 1167 [Reply] [Last]
What's the best way to go about doing this and keeping it as secure and as invisible as possible. I want to make sure it's not going to get taken down or sued because people don't like that I have copyrighted material hosted.
