Whoops... Scratched the Cell while removing its IHS –
So, I successfully removed the IHS from my PS3's CPU in order to change the thermal paste (did it by sliding/shoving a razor blade in to cut the silicone/epoxy/whatever sticks the IHS).
However, I noticed I did some light damage to the PCB (the actual CPU PCB, not the motherboard). A few copper traces were revealed at a few points and there was even a nice cut.
The razor blade was parallel/almost parallel to the PCB all the time so I do not believe it could have cut too deep.
The PS3 still boots fine, however I'm scared that there is actually a cut trace on that PCB and something will end up not working. Anyone experienced here could tell me if there is something to worry about? Or does the fact it boots fine means there shouldn't be any issues?
