i have finally open my CECHK01 model and applied arctic silver 5 and succeded on the first try!!
here are some pictures:
so this is how the Heatsink looks like on the 80GB core model (CECHK01)
Here are the RSX and the CELL chips:
Here is a closer look at the chips, p.s. im amazed at how cheap the thermal paste was and also surprised that my ps3 not even once overheated on me.
well thats it sorry i don't got anymore pictures, it just that i really wanted to do it fast and fire up the ps3 and see that everything works just
and i was amazed at how quite the fan started when i booted up my ps3, people were right about arctic silver 5!! it does give you immediate results!!
To everyone with that model: Be careful when cleaning off those heatsinks. Mine moved on me and when I put it back together for the first time the chips weren't touching them and almost overheated >.<
how did they "move" aren't they attached in the bottom?
My model is the CECHL01, similar to yours. I noticed they were very springy/moveable and I guess I rubbed too hard when cleaning them off. So when I took it apart the 2nd time, I kind of just locked them back into place.
