HI Im new to this but i thought i would have a go at fixing my xbox 360 be re balling it,ive managed to remove the gpu and take all the old solder balls of and cleaned it up,then ive put it in a re balling jig with the 360 stencil fluxed the gpu with flux with a fine paint brush then let the solder balls drop onto the gpu and all is ok up to now there all in place,its when i come to heat them up with my heat gun a few of them move into each other so i have to try again.ive only atempted it twice and the same thing happens 10 20 percent of the balls are moving into one another im using SAIKE 852D+ at 200 250 degres with the air fully turned down. any help would be very much appreciated thanks john
