Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You need a screwdriver, a heat gun, arctic silver compound, lots of patience.
Dismantle your ps3 down to the motherboard. Clean off the compound on the Graphics chips with isopropyl alcohol. Set your heat gun to around 700*F. Apply hot air to each of the Graphics chips, 1" away, in a swirling motion for 15-17 seconds each on one side. Let cool down for 20min. DO NOT MOVE THE BOARD. Repeat for the other side. Let cool down for 20min. DO NOT MOVE THE BOARD. Apply new compound to the graphics chips with Arctic Silver. Put the PS3 back together and it should work. It worked for me!
