Thats not normal behaviour for a ps3 slim. I would advise sending it in to get fixed or buying a new one. If youre alittle strapped for cash and happen to have an older model with YLOD you can take it apart and replace the thermal paste giving it another week or two of use before it dies again, then just go trade it into a game store. Thats what i did. Just don't mention that it had ylod.

Problem could be intercooler caused actual damage as well. Ive seen some horrific pics of intercoolers doing bad damage to systems.

Those things should be outlawed..the air is restricted enough with the ps3 and these just enhance the effect..removing just the back grill alone on the ps3 fat or slim reduces temps by at least 20 degrees minimum..i have tested this with several units.

 

those grills are just to restricting not letting a free flow of air,and the cosmetics of the rear grill being cut out don't matter,you never see the back of it..lol

i would advise you to not use CL looking for a repair person as most are scams that will just take a heatgun to it and repaste it and then you think you will be fine then 2 weeks later your out of that repair money and your ps3.

 

that being said it doesn't sound like you need a reball as you haven't actually got ylod,i think you just need to redo the thermal paste and if you can't then just about any PC shop will do it...it's easy to do and theres many tutorials on how to do it as well.

You can always try asking your parents and explain how you have a faulty system maybe put on a little tear show and act really depressed like your worlds ruined. I'm sure they'd wanna see their little angle happy.

When ever my kids pull them stunts i always see right through it,and would hope most parents do.

I'm asuming it would work better if you're a single child. but yes it is a cliche way for children to get what you want.. You can also try finding someone from school who has one and attempt steal his. preferably some dumb druggie.


If your going to go that far,just act like you hurt yourself and go to the hospital and get a script for some pain pills and then the dopeheads will trade everything they got for them..haha
