    I recently just noticed one of these SMC’s off, I don’t have a tip that’s fine enough to get this guy back on there. Was wondering how difficult of a repair if it’s even possible to repair this would be.

    That's a capacitor, and it shouldn't give you problems if it's not there (maybe yes). It depends of how important to the circuit area is. You can try turning on the PS3 and test it, if gives you an error, just buy a cheap soldering iron, some flux and some of solder wire, then put it on back.

    BTW, the amount of paste you are using is poor.
