I have a ps3 with 3.55 CFW and its the CECH-2503B model and 0C as the date code:
I did get it brand new and installed the CFW myself :
I have been noticing that it making a popping/cracking sound after a while:
Googling tells me its nothing to worry about,just the cover casing expanding cos of the heat;
I am still not satisfied and was wondering if this model is prone to the YLOD ?
Anyone have this model and does it make the sound in ur system as well ?
I could return it to the shop (as its less than 1 month old) but I know that I will only get the newer versions which are unhackable for now ;
Please advise further;
