I delited many ps3's up up now, all without trouble both rsx and cell. You all know it is essential or you WILL run in to YLOD with EVERY ps3 model, so because im a collector i want them for a long time working But now I got my first super slim 400x for my collection. I tried to delit the CPU. besides the spots around the IHS glue like on late slim models, that makes cutting much harder than on fat models where it takes seconds, it was cutted fine. the cell where cutted completly, but the die was completle melted onto the ihs. I tried to lift it and the hol cpu brokes out of the board. So now my question, are there a few models that got a soldered ihs like on AMD PC CPU? I mean the die brokes completly out and sticks on the ihs. After everything was destroyed ether I decided to try to get the die of the ihs but nothing. not even with a hammer has it possibe to become it free. So are there super slim cpus that are soldered? Anybody sucsessfully delited a super slim? My idea was to fill up the cell with isoprop alcohol BEFOR cutting the glue, so it fills up with isoprop and dissolve the stoned thermalcompound. All ps3 cells got this tiny hole at the front where most place there cutter to begin delitting, there I would try to fill in the isoprop. Would this be a good idea? I always clean old cpus with isoprop cause it makes the harded thik old past nearly liquid and easy to wipe. So my idea ias to soak it in to isoprop that the old dried and nearly stoned paste suck it up and get soft again.
