      I have done "High Reliability" soldering for the aerospace industry for about 15 years, similar to that which is done on the leads on the processor in your computer. CLEAN is the name of the game, both of the items to be soldered must have any and all coatings removed in the area to be soldered then cleaned with isopropyl alcohol (91% or better, available at your local drug store). Flux (rosin or aqueous) should be applied to both pieces immediately prior to soldering then the entire area should be thoroughly cleaned with an appropriate cleaner (D.I. water or Iso- Alcohol, depending the type of flux used). The technique for soldering is to clip "heatsinks" (alligator clips, etc.) on either side of the joint, then apply heat to both pieces at the same time, feed solder slowly into the joint, and remove heat immediately. Do not apply anything to cool the solder joint, as this will weaken it. It takes a bit of practice but the results will be worth the work.
