SWAUG TUTORIAL: Overclocking the BlizzardPPC : Comment 12 of 19ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 4 (Alkis Tsapanidis):
Proper tool for BGA is actually just alcohol, solder flux, solder wick (to remove excess solder), soldering iron, something to lift the chip with and something to make hot air with (CEO of an eBusiness, for instance ;-) ).

Heat the chip while lifting it, it'll pop off. Then use iron and wick to remove the old solder. Clean things off with alcohol, apply a vast amount of new flux, pop chip into place and heat up again. BGA is self-centering and we're talking QUITE large balls. The important thing is not to have ANY excess solder under it, so all the balls touch their copper lands.

Good luck :-)
