Hey every one I was wondering if this would be a good idea? Iv been watching some videos and what really bothers me is the heat resistant paste that goes on the gpu and CPU, my ps3 is at least 5 years old and I couldn't imagine that paste not dried up. Now I was wondering if I should do it my self or pay some one to do it. Does any one know how much it would cost or if it is more worth doing your self
A 160GB PS3, even the first one, may never need this. It was mostly a problem with the earliest models (60GB, 20GB, 40GB, and 80GB Motorstorm bundle). My recommendation would be that if it isn't broken, then don't fix it. Your PS3 has no capabilities that the current models don't have, so it makes little sense to pay someone to perform an unapproved maintenance procedure on a working console. Doing it yourself is a good way to end up buying a new console. Some people are successful with the procedure, and some people are not.
