Aug 9, 2011

Doublecheck that all the heatsink pads are in their proper places for the memory chips.

hmmn, same problem. One question is, would the same happen to you if you were to turn of all the fans in your computer case? Then at least I know it is a problem of ventilation.

Hey, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner...my SSD decided to crap out on me and I finally got my laptop up and running again.

Can you PM me pictures of what you got so far?

Sorry to hear about your SSD, how long have you had it for?

btw, what pictures are you looking for? The setup or the problem?

Re: DIY - Liquid cool a PS3 and swap into a computer case

Sorry for the absolutely late reply, I was away on an overseas exhange for a semester.

Here are my pictures

Hope it helps.

The two fans at the back are blowing cool air into the case. I was hoping that both fans can help to cool the resistors and ICs located above the RSX and CELL processors.

Another two fans in the front mounted radiator blows cool air into the radiator.

When the message that "Your playstation is getting too hot..." appears, I measure the temperature of the coolant and it measures at a cool 23 degress celsius. I honestly have no idea which part of the PS3 is heating up...
