just curious, i have done many xbox 360 rrod repairs. this will be my first ps3 with heatgun.(before was a quick paste swap)
my first question is if the BD cable is not connecting correctly will it still boot up?(see photo)i used a piece of cardboard so it stays in the connector(clip is broken)
next question is, in my xbox experience the heatsink and artic silver always had complete contact(unlike this). is this normal? my first phat looked like this too.
i also noticed the wi-fi cable(or the cable on the usb board. (sorry so big)
as you can see it didnt get to hot...
i know with the xbox i can poweer it on and run correctly with just the case and motherboard and drive connected, is it the same for the ps3 or does it have to be all together?
i know there are tuts out there but they just go into how to repair not really detailed in what needs to be attached or what will make it not boot besides a bent board or bad paste.
before i waste my precious artic silver and time i would like to know these thinks.
thanX in advance.
