    ok cool so for argument sake and to put those nay sayers away, are u planning on doing the rest of the tonkin caps so u can test those high demanding games out to back up that they work for ur console? ive ordered new caps to run some tests on multiple consoles i have but got the couple weeks wait till they arrive so i'll seek some more research on this until then.

    NEC/TOKIN wants to know your location
    At the moment for me is not necessary, i only use the console for PS1/PS2, which i use it everyday, its more adequate for a HDTV, works fine the way it is, sometimes is used with PS3 Content mainly for Temp Testing, but for PlayStation3 Playback, i use the Slim Models, so there is no need to torture this one.

    I can't recall the user, whom did the full replacement also on a Backwards Compatible PS3 in here, and tested it with GT6 and TLoU, and reported no crashes whatsoever,if you search though the previous early posts on this topic or the NEC one, you might find whom the user is.

    Heyy, welcome to the thread! Even though my problem is not solved, its refreshing to know that my thread has spread the word for others going through this weird problem.

    Regarding the slow down, mine kinda fizzled away. Must have been a temporary thing.

    Anyway as an update, TTT2 still the only game that shuts the unit down. Temps still running great despite no upgrades to the internals (power supply) and has comfortably ran full trophy playthroughs for Uncharted 1 and Sonic Unleashed, both extremely demanding games.

    Unusual problem for sure, but the unit is still kickin'. Truth be told, She's mainly for display nowdays rather than actual use. :D

    Seen the video and paid attention to his temperature descriptions.
    Really strange behaviour.
    Read most of the pages , if the issue hasn't been fixed I would suggest grab yourself another ps3 a slim version like nakedsnake said , i wouldn't bother looking for all those chips tbh , most of the times when somethings wrong with these consoles it's always not easy to find the cause and fix them unfortunatly and sadly enough , because i know we love our consoles and it's really hard to see this happening so i completely understand the urge and do your best to try and fix it. These days you can grab another ps3 for a good price and you'll play that game no bother and keep your older ps3 for other stuff.
    Sometimes it's better not to mess with it any further else you'll damage it for real.
    Try and contact an expert specialist in electronics where you live and they might be able to help you.
