Can someone give me a link to the right solder paste

I need to solder something back onto a GPU pcb using solder paste but I'm not sure what the right solder paste is for my specific procedure. Could a knowledgable person give me a link to buy the right stuff

  1. I assume that the thing you are trying to re-fit is tiny?

  2. you solder with tin wire:) and D = 0,75mm should be right for you

  3. Get a noclean pbfree paste if you wanna rework a BGA or similar.

    How do you wanna rework this?

    I'm hoping to get the type of paste where you put a drop on and then put the part you're trying to solder back on and then get a heat gun and the paste turns into a clean solder ball

  6. usually you would use a thin wire solder and heat it by a soldering iron with a thin bit

    a heat gun can blow other components from the board, so you shouldn´t do it like this

    I dont really have a choice because im not good with soldering irons so doing it this way seems lot easier

    In which case don't do it, find a small electrical repair shop nearby, talk them through what you need etc. It'll save your next post being 'I soldered this thingy back on, and it still doesn't work, because... '

    That's the risk that you'll be taking, doing something that you are unqualified to do, will commonly lead to issues that are worse than where you started. Get someone who knows what they are doing to do it. But hey, it's your stuff, this is not rocket science that it can go wrong, so I'm sure you've thought of everything.
