First of, thank you for making this tutorial.
I just tried this yesterday on a CECHG03 40GB (PAL), but it sadly didn't work for me.
My oven was pre-heated at 200C then I did put the PS3 mobo in it for 10 minutes.
I cleaned the heatsinks with 99% isopropanol alcohol. Then I applied Silver Artic 5 like this:
I also used the No Clean Flux and applied it correctly regarding several youtube videos.
I covered everything (plastic and caps) with Blutack (And the shiny foil side up). And I also removed the battery, and covered it with Blutack and foil as the holder was plastic.
But it returned me a YLOD.
So I tried it again today but letting the oven pre heat at 200C for a even longer time. Then put the PS3 mobo in there and put the temperature to 210C or so.
Repeating the process above..
But it still gave me a YLOD.
I even tried a other power supply. From a CECHC04 60GB (PAL), but again it still gave me a YLOD.
Any ideas? I really want to get it to work now... hehe
