This is the original 60gb from day one, so it's already out of warranty wink.gif

I'll rebuild the thing tomorrow and see if I can get it to turn on, especially since FFX13-2 is in the post!

That has given me a thought, I didn't use the backplates because they wouldn't fit, maybe I'm shorting something out, or I've got thermal paste where I shouldn't have, done that before.

I'd actually love to WC my PS3. I have a 60GB launch PS3 and it is really loud now. I've cleaned it out and such, but WCing would be perfect. Hope you get it working OP. I'd start by disassembling it and putting it back together. Connections can be finicky on that kind of stuff.

Quit slamming the guy and help him.

If I could've helped him I would have, but I've never water cooled a PS3. As such I can only give him advice for future situations. The only things I slam are PBRs.

Dude I take off my hat for you. Big respect thumb.gif no no no wait..... HUGE RESPECT thumb.gifthumb.gif

I would love to have a watcooled PS3. What temps were you getting with the setup and where did you get the parts / what parts were you using? And the annoying question: what did it cost you eventually?

If you PS3 was fine before watercooling it. And it ylod right when you wanted to start up with the setup it is quite illogical for it to actually overheat. Unless your waterblock isn't touching the cpu and gpu at all. I also bet my money on some connection not being made or something making too much contact.

I hope you get it working. I would love to see loads of more pics.

@people being annoying: 75% of all stuff on this forum is unneeded, unnecesary and far too expensive. And a PS3 is only 200 euros. A cpu people overclock to a pile of poof is usually more expensive. Give this man some credit for trying to be creative.

Why did you bake it though? A watercooled ps3 deserves a reball frown.gif

Thanks bud, I run a water cooling company in the UK so I get everything on the cheap anyway, cost me about £80 excluding VAT but I already had some of the bits (hence the blocks are different)

I would have thought if it was overheating, then it would turn on for a few seconds, not just one second. Also when it overheats you don't get a YLOD just a flashing red light.

Useless fact: there is no yellow LED, the red and green just come on at the same time biggrin.gif

Ah, the irony. You watercool to prevent overheating/YLOD and it receives the YLOD anyways lol

Good luck with the baking! Hope it comes out and works properly smile.gif
