I try to give you props at reg, but i guess your ps3 nick isnt the same as on here. I have fixed two different ps3 now, and both couldnt make it passed a one day test. Being an computer tech, and know I was on the right track to breath a longer life into these machine...thought maybe a little more reading from some who been fixing them may help. Short of redesigning the damn thing, not sure what to do. Hoping to find a real cheap way to upgrade the cooling system. New to the ps3, but I see why people like it. But it is still not better than the work horse called the fat ps2.
