    Never attempted slim. But good to know it's easier lol as wasn't sure with how everything is laid out. Does it still require motherboard removal or can everything be soldered on top?

    Don't make ur first atempt on soldering on xbox
    Try other already broken stuff to get the skills.
    Its not hard but u get the feeling then.

    As far as i now u need it to remove but u can google alternative points.
    Its more differcult to solder without motherboard removal....

    Man, glad I took Electronic Exploration in high school! But for me, it's actually easier than it looks.

    I recommend attempting to solder some mini project kits( they're under $10), you can buy them at Fry's electronics.
    It's fun and educational. And if your kit runs good, then you know you're capable of soldering.
    Better than attempting to solder first on an expensive hardware.

    Yes You Have to remove the motherboard to solder. Think it's one or two solder points on the underside of the motherboard.
