Ylod. And over heating like a madman. This is an og 60 fat. Have had it since they came out and got it as a gift. It has so much content on it its not even funny. Swapped out the hdd years ago (like 8) run a 750g hdd so its holding up fine. Until I took it apart one day in June to blow it out. Never ran solid again. That's when I thought of your site. I've read your teardowns on cell phones for years ( another passion of mine to take apart and repair). Low and behold you had not only a walkthrough, which I used to clean my ps3, but a repair kit. The rest is history!!
Thanks to taking it apart using your walkthrough already numerous times, once the kit arrived the actual repair was a cake walk. Took less then 35 minutes soup to nuts. Plugged it in and legit its super quiet. Like almost new quiet. Couldn't be happier! And now I can continue my love for games with my 6 year old daughter. She and I still play it on rainy days and can do so now thanks to your help!!!
Taking things apart is honestly common sense. I have always taken things apart. Just do not let it intimidate you. It's only plactis and metal. Since its already broken anyway you should be calm when you try to fix or see what's wrong with it. Have a good work space first. Arrange each part in order of removal, especially SCREWS. Laying them out like they were removed is a great way to NOT get confused. Take your time and don't rush. Read the walkthrough or teardown or watch the YouTube video multiple times. Most important? Have a blast! Your taking your things into your own hands to fix and get them working better! How much more fun could life be?!?!
