The Silver Aopen CDROM drive is starting to fail so I am going to replace it with this Sony 52x drive.

Out of curiosity, how did you reball this BGA? Did you create a reballing mask specifically for it?


Actually, I do not have a stencil so I just reflowed the chip with some No-clean flux and a heat gun and it worked.


Did you actually remove the chip or just put flux under it and hair dryer it?

These AGP Voodoo cards I did not reflow. They still work like new from manufacture.
The Voodoo cards I did reflow where PCI Voodoo-3 cards.
I just removed the fan/heatsink and reflowed the GPU chip and ram with some NO-clean flux. I did not remove the chips.
I just poured some NO-clean flux under the GPU chip and on the ram contacts and heated with heat-gun at 150c degrees.
That is the melting temp of the solder. Heat until all the No-clean flux is evaporated. I just let the solder do all the work of repairing the welds.
And it worked.
