I usually blast stuff right away at 350*C when I reflow (using a automotive heatgun) and have had lots of success (2 PS3s, a Geforce 7600GT 256MB PCI-E, a 9800GT, a 7900GS and the list can continue) with it. Key part is don't heat stuff up for too long if using such heat guns. I usually kept it blasting for about 2-3 minutes tops.

But in the end, your technique will probably work (haven't tried it, am really curious to see how it turns out!)too.
