    so i found a first model ps3 the one with sd card slot etc ,it looks brand new it even has the plastic film stil on it ,
    when turning it on the first time it boots than a message ps3 is to hot etc etc ,when opening up the ps3 is like new not a spec of dust nothing ,so i change the thermal paste to artic silver 5 i did spread it and put a extra rice size of paste in the middel put everything to gather stil the same problem ! turns on fan is speeding up than turns off red light flashing
    what are my options to fix this or is it a lost one

    thanks

    Removing the IHS's probably

    But install CFW and check temperatures, before doing anything you need to try to find if the problem is in CELL or in RSX

    Keep the PS3 opened, and add an external fan aiming to the PS3, this way it will not overheat much
