Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You can buy one off of ebay. You need to know which ps3 system you have so you get the right one. For instance Sony has 2 different power supply units. One has 3 wire the other has 4 wire. However most of the motherboards on ebay are broken. Just need to be patient to find a working board for your system. YOu could also buy a broken ps3 off of ebay and hope it is broke due to other issues, after all you want a good motherboard.

What you have described is the cause of hardware failure internally due to over heating.
are 2 chips inside the PS3 one is the GPU (graphics processor unit)
and the other is a CPU (brain) They are both soldered on to the
motherboard. as these chips give off a lot of heat it can crack the
solder causing he chips to lose connection with the motherboard. This
can cause all sorts of problems like the YLOD, THE 3 BEEPS, THE RED
this is my advice.
1. if your in warranty you should really call sony as they can repair or even replace the PS3 and this is for free.
2. If your out of warranty or don't have the $150 repair costs then I would use a PS3 repair guide ( like I did to fix the YLOD). Its easier than it sounds and can be done at home.
here to see the video on the Ultimate PS3 repair guide
hope I have helped you and please can you rate my post (good or bad)
as I have several pages of unrated posts.
