How about re-writing your question - I have no idea what you're asking.

 

Did your console get YLOD?  If so, it's under warranty - take it back to the store for a refund or replacement.

 

Are you afraid of it getting YLOD in the future?  If so, there is no way to predict if and when it will happen.

Pretty much this, the only way that you could do to help reduce the possibility of you breaking your ps3 is:

 

-Clean it with a can of compressed air , depends how easily is to gather dust were you have your ps3 (it is recommended once a month though)

-keep it in cool and spacious places

-NEVER disconnect the ps3 while is on specially when the HDD is working (this is like the last resort in case it doesn't respond)

-if possible protect it against power surge or power blackouts ( I use an APC Back-ups 1300 PRO for my TV and laptop as well)

 

its all you can do to assure you if it fails its a hardware thing and not because of you

No,

 

Sony Support sent me an email saying they do not reccomend you suck or blow anything through the PS3.

 

That sounds dirty I know.

 

So if you insist on using compressed air make sure the console is room temperature inside or you can break it from thermal stress.

well I forgot to add that about using it while is at room temp but I didn't know about it ruining your console, I mean I had a second gen 40gb PS3 for about 4 years and that's how i kept it running like new (I still switched it to a Super slim one but that's because of opportunity and the power savings)

Use the hose from a vacuum cleaner (a regular upright vacuum works well) on the vents on all sides about once a month to prevent dust buildup.

 

Compressed air can not only freeze internal components, but it can actually compact the dust inside the PS3, making the issue worse.

Well, then, that would be a yes - nothing is immune to failure.
