Is there really no way to test the PS3 PSU i have?
Also a batch of precision tweezers - though i have doubts if they can help me lift those large BGA chips (RSX / CELL) - What equipment do you guys use for that? Was considering a hand-powered or electric pump-powered silicone(?) suction pen, though - what are your opinions on them?
I was also thinking about Dremeling a hole through the bottom of the PS3 right where the fan intake is, and add an AC + fiber lint filter and some rubber height bumpers. Was wondering if that is a good idea - doing it for my PC was quite helpful in keeping the temps down.
you got a reball station?
