Kudos for learning this way, but I would've put some space between the hot power supply and the case, or built an external enclosure. Personally, I just replaced the garbage thermal paste with AS5 and the power supply with a much cooler APS-231, and it's been a wondrous difference.
What power supply do you have, the Z-model?
You should do this after you fix your PS3 which has the YLOD.
.. not anymore.
For sure, I've done this with my Fat PS3 (May it Rest in peace ), it lasted much longer than it would have probably have lasted.

what model is it ? what the problem is it ?
Same model as this one, YLOD, and a broken Blu Ray drive plus It's on like 3.56 firmware so I can't use any FW that disables it checking the Blu Ray drive. (I already had one PS3 in an update loop)
Every Fat PS3 I had, had a problem with the blu ray drive.
