Video: Inside PS3 Super / Ultra Slim, Internal Disassembly Pictures


Sponsored Links
99w ago - Following up on the PS3 super / ultra slim unboxing, first look, and HDD guide, today I've opened Sony's new console to see what is inside.

I've made a video of the disassembly, and some pictures of the new MSX-001 motherboard.

As you can see, there's a lot of modifications on this model: MB, BR drive, HDD emplacement and so on.

You can see the Blu-ray drive, very small than older BR drive.

PS: To remove the 2 glossy pieces, you just have to slide to the right like the PS3 fat.

According to pereb27, the new model features no RSX IHS (but still contains a Cell IHS) potentially meaning the end of the dreaded PS3 YLOD... it looks like Sony finally did something right.

Below are some PS3 super / ultra slim internal disassembly pictures and videos, as follows:

















Finally, here is a PlayStation 3 Super Slim Teardown Guide for those interested as well.

everything is compact. it's very notable that WiFi/Bluetooth Chipset is far more smaller now and now embedded on motherboard, same with Blu-ray drive..
