Can I ask why did you do it?
Because you got the YLOD? or to prevent one?
i had my 80GB ps3 since launch & its working perfectly so far & i've been using it a lot, do i need to worry about YLOD?
i have never got a YLOD, i just wanted to avoid it and make my ps3 run cooler. thats it. i had only ONE time when the ps3 shutted down on me in the middle of infamous and it was blinking red light and it didn't stop until i had pushed the on/off botton an they it just stayed red and then i pressed it again and it turned on. now this was only one time and thank god it only happened once, and since then i just wanted to apply arctic silver 5 to make sure it runs cooler and never overheat again.
Hey ppl in the PS3 realm. I want to thank everyone in here that suggested the new thermal paste. I took my PS3 aprt to clean it not even thinking about breakin the thermal paste from the board. I put it back together not addin any, and i swear it sounded like my Playstation was goin to take flight. So in a panic I took it apart, read these posts, found thermal paste, (thx mom in law), and blamoh...no more hairdryer...I cant afford a new PS3, so I thank you all...Add me and Ill thank u again. Peace out!
