[Answered] Some questions to prevent PS3 YLOD help?
So my PS3 got YLOD 2 times already, first time it has been reflowed, and it lasted around 20 months, now it has been reballed, so I hope it will last longer.
My 40 GB FAT PS3 usually had temps 76C/68C after gaming a few hours, and I have tested Iris Manager with PayLoad mode (only in the last days before the YLOD...), and temps were around 64C/55C after gaming, which already sounds much better.
My question is, that usually what part of the console overheats when the YLOD happens? If the GPU/CPU doesn't overheats that can minimize the chance of the YLOD, or are there other parts which can overheat and we can't prevent it?
So, basically if my CPU/GPU is always cool from now on, with Iris Manager, and they're only 64C/55C I have much less chance to get a YLOD?
Or are there parts in the PS3, which the fan can't cool either ways, and they will still overheat?
No not worth, design is faulty by itself, best way is to replace for good compound under IHS and over it on CPU/GPU and hope for the best as problem is in lead free soldering points
