    Mk2.8plus Presoldered Kits .... how much work?

    Could anyone give me some insight on these presoldered kits for sale.

    I am not the best at soldering... but i can do a lil.

    I was just curious.. what other parts will i need. I got some samples from maxim a while back.

    basically i dont know how much more work i have to do to it. and what kinda wires i would need..

    any help would be appreciated.
    thanks a lot.

    ok...
    I guess i might of not scrolled down the bottom of your first post all the way.

    Ok.. from what i understand all i have to solder on and find is
    MAX787CCK (MAXIM)
    MAX788CCK (MAXIM)
    LM2587-12T (NATIONAL)
    T6 transformer (COILCRAFT, RENCO, WILCO)
    47uH Inductor (COILCRAFT, RENCO, WILCO)
    10uH inductor (COILCRAFT, RENCO, WILCO)

    is this pretty easy for even the worst solderer
    Thanks!. i might have to try this... lil short on cash.. but i wanna build this system right

    I got the Maxim and now just to find the other parts....
    wasnt as lucky to get those samples.

    Basically if it is presoldered 85%, if not more of the is done. Yes you will have to solder the parts that are not included, and I am pretty sure you will have to solder the ATX connector and wires.

    For the price, there is no better solution. If you have any basic soldering skill you can do it. If you are sweating soldering a few wires and very few components, maybe you should buy a prefabricated supply.

    It is really very simple, the soldering I mean.

    oh i can do basic soldering...not worried bout a few things...just when it comes to soldering a lot of pieces on a pcb then i get a lil messy...i havent done a lot.. just minor stuff like modchips on playstation and the such..... i just have more problem with the diagrams then anything lol.
    thats why i am glad this one is almost done.
    guess the 100 dollars cheaper kinda confused me if "most" of the work is done.

    thanks for your response.

    by the way my max787 is a max787eck (thats what they sent) will this still work?

    rbarr110 no the connectors are soldered on the board..!

    All one has to do is just soldered the missing parts.
