CECHE01 console, replaced its thermal paste 3 months ago for quality compound (CoolerMaster Mastergel Maker), cleaned up its insides, installed CFW and webman-MOD with a max temperature of 61ºC on both RSX and Cell. Fan goes loud but it never gets hot. It's up and running ever since and it never presented any kind of problem until today. I've played the hell out of it yesterday, then today I turned it on, only to be greeted with the YLOD. I turned it on, then it gave me a quick green light, like 2 seconds, then yellow, then blinking red light until I pressed the Power button again. Thing is, right after this happened, I took a deep, long breath and while I thought everything was dead and over, as I pressed the Power button once again it turned on NORMALLY. Normally, no issues, it turned on and booted to the XMB like nothing ever happened. WTF? Isn't the YLOD a major hardware problem? Stuff like BGA solder gone bad on the CPU/GPU and such. Why would it give me a random YLOD only to turn on normally right after? Right now the PS3 is on, up and running, and I'm afraid of turning it off again lol. Help me understand what just happened here or at least give me some words of hope. Thanks.
