my ps3's weird problem
Just to share my experience.
I fixed my YLOD problem, and it went away. Thats good.
But one thing, I noticed the moment I switch on my PS3, the fan does not kick in.
Instead, after 5 minutes, it will go on hyperdrive mode. No biggie, but really distracting since
i have to crank up my speakers to overcome its noise.
But, last time before my PS3 was hit by YLOD, the fan occassionally kicks in hyperdrive, and when it does, I feel
the air behind it, a bit hot. Now, the air is normal air, not hot at all, only the fan is loud.
Weird eh..any advise?
Wrong type of heatsink thermal compound, or not enough or way too much of it.
Or the two I-clamps are not tighten enough, and there is not even presuree on the two sides, one side is more tight then the other leaving a gap on one of the four corners.
ah okay.. but in the long run, will it kill my ps3?

thats bro, but I noticed the air thats vented out of the thing is not hot, only normal air.

and the air would be hot, not as hot as hair dryer air tho...but thanks for the advise.
