First I was going to suggest pulling that sucker apart and doing the x-clamp mod.
Then I remembered I was not in an Xbox forum. :o
When I saw it, I immediately thought of the RROD that the 360 can get.
I personally have not pulled the PS3 apart yet.
Doesn't look very hard at all to get into.
I am planning on doing it this Summer just so I can replace the thermal paste and get some pictures for a tutorial.
Took out a bad link,
Will edit with something better in a few minutes.
Sorry, it was more of an advertising thing than an instructional.
don't know why I am unable to find the link I'm looking for.
Don't want to give bad info, so I am going to leave this as is until I can dig up the proper link.
It's a basic tutorial on cracking open the PS3 and how to replace the thermal paste.
Maybe someone else here knows of a link to it.
I would much rather go to my grave not needing my gun, than go there wishing I had it.
