jaimechamo, here is my answer to a similar question. "First you do need to remember that this will only work if your YLOD is caused by solder fractures and if they are not to extreme. Reflowing any board with a heatgun is not an exact science and as such does have a certain amount of failure. The proper fix for this would most likely be a professional reball. That does not mean that your repair is not going to last. there is just no way to predict if and when it is going to fail again. Hope this helps, good luck
