    I planned to play some Street Fighter when I started up my game, my PS3 suddenly started to blow like a monster(Blow in air ;P) BUT WTF I was shocked and turned it off as soon as I could.

    Could anyone tell me if I am close of getting for the 3rd time YLOD? I fixed it once and the guy who had it before fixed it once..

    I am feeling worried it is going to die again like it did a few weeks ago. >.< DAMN DAMN ¬¬

    If it is gonna YLOD again, just dissasamble the PS3.
    Remove the Therminal paste and heatsink, clean them.
    Get some (rubber) stack ups (pillars w/e) and put the mother board in the oven.

    There is some tutorial around, this will reflow your whole PS3 board.

    Let it cool off, don't move it!

    Then get some Silver arctic paste, and put it on the GPU/CPU, spread it to be as thin as you can.

    And the PS3 should be.. better than new, as Sony didn't do it right. [​IMG]

    It seems like the guy who fixed his PS3 re-flowed it before (which just resets the ylod clock pretty much) you will have to re-ball your playstation.
