So this model comes with dual lasers (one for Blue-ray and one for DVD)... It should also come with the APS 240 psu, along with the 19 blade fan.

Probably best thing to do is open it up and check that everything on the motherboard looks fine (no fallen off bits), and there are no burn marks. Also check that the CPU/GPU look alright.

If everything looks good, move onto phase no.2. You do not need a reflow with reflux atm. But we still need to do something about the heat issues. So, you will need to change the stock Thermal Paste - to something better (the stock TIM is absolute crap).

Also, you can bend the clamps slightly (holding the fan in position) - to get the HSF tighter contact with the chips
Alright comrade, I will do that right now.
I have a huge tube of Arctic silver....thats what i will use.
I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks for all the info so far.

Recently had to bake a original PS3 (4 usb ports on front) to bring back to life (YLOD). I had it in the oven at 380 degrees for 10 minutes. Used MX-3 for the thermal grease. Been running flawlessly for weeks since.

The hardest part about breaking down the original PS3 was getting the security screw out of the top. Didn't have the right tool. Dunno if the slim has those same screws.

At first I broke the PS3 down and reapplied better thermal paste but still YLOD.
On second attempt I tried the bake.

UPDATE: In pieces now, the thermal paste is all dry, not even damp.

I'm hoping this is my issue.

Ok. I have reassembled the unit, i've replaced thermal compound for cpu/gpu with Arctic Silver.

I turned it back on, and it loaded very smooth.

I ran the game again, and it appeared to be running beautiful.
i played for a little over 5 minutes, then the artifacts slowly started showing again, but not as often as before.

5 minutes later (after first artifact), the video froze, but the game sound was working fine... Were getting somewhere here.. what else can I do?.. besides putting my unit in my oven.. if my wife sees me doing that she will commit me..lol

EDIT: I took a close look at the motherboard when I took it apart... there was no burn marks or bad solder points... When putting the towel on the ps3, should I run something graphically intensive? or leave it on home screen?

I would use a heat gun over a "trick" that cooks the whole board any day.
