fat ps3 issue, cause? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
probably because they used crappy lead solder, lead solder has low melting point as opposed to silver solder which has a high melting point, the problem stims form using low quality high temp solder so i don't see how using lead solder is gonna help.

That said weather you reball or re flow you have to modify the cooling system other wise it's just gonna happen again. I drilled some holes with a paddle bit and JB welded in some modders mesh under the fan and stuck some adhesive backed case feet under the existing case feet, all in an effort to give it more air flow, I haven't had any returned since with the exception of one and it hasn't not returned for a 3rd.

didn't see these posts till just a min ago.
did a reflow myself with a heatgun and it works now, just need to get a ps3 controller or an xbox to ps3 adapter so i can use it.

i used a heatgun, then cleaned out all the guts.
haven't put on the case yet but thats because i'll be using it for a much more awesome project.

I think he did that like 3 times before he took their offer for a new refurbished 60gb. It comes with a 1 or 2 year warranty.

well i hope i don't have to keep reflowing mine. i dont have the ability to reball but i can keep blasting it with a heatgun.
i set my heatgun to 217 F, i heat up the board first for expansion, then heat up each chip for about 11-12 mins per (just the gpu and cpu)
works now.
soon as my buddy brings me over a controller i'll be set.

won't cut it you want 217c at the least, you are also gonna need a griddle cause at the required temps it will warp the board. They are made with high temp solder so 217f isn't gonna cut, not even close. As far as having to keep reflowing/rebelling see my post above. I've done a number of Gfx cards, mobos, PS3s, and 360s.

i can set my heat gun to 1000F but watched a video on youtube that said 210 for 10mins per gpu and gpu.
it works now
if it comes down to it i'll hit maybe 375f on the gun. and move up to 400 if that doesn't fix it

i have some large steel blocks i can set the mb on so it doesn't warp. i actually have a video of it on both youtube and twitch.tv/jollyriffic

well when you bake a graphics card which is the same exact thing they do 450f. also if comes to that i HIGHLY suggest liquid no clean flux to aid the re-flow. I also suggest some way of allowing it too cool better. while doing some experiments the other tech i was working with found removing the plastic hard cover allowed it to suck in some more air. I also suggest putting something like pop caps under the case feet so it also has little more air flowing under the ps3 because after all there were the intake ofthefan is located hence my air intake mod.

well for the cooling, if you check that twitch page, you can see down on the info page i'm taking out the guts from a ps3, xbox, and my computer.
dropping them into a 4 foot x 1.5 foot x 5 inch lexan box. filling it with non-conductive cooling fluid and using a tep cooler to return the boiled liquid from gas to liquid.
theres also a video on that info page under the concept picture.

so all the parts other than the optical drives will be submerged.
just need to raise the funds for the lexan and other items needed to do it all.
