If any damage is going to occur, it's while removing the old capacitorsm
not while soldering the new ones in place. Pulling on a lead that hasn't
been sufficiently heated can cause a track to adhere to it and get ripped
off. Worse still, it can cause a copper sleeve that connects the top layer
to the underside of the circuit board and to all the intermediary layers
INSIDE the circuit board to be pulled out. If that happens, you might as
well purchase a new, sorry, used mobo anyway.

I don't think he's being nasty. We're both trying to make the point that
there is no answer to your question.
