I understand that everyone wants to believe that there is a simple fix that doesn't require expensive tools or paying for professionals. I understand that some of you don't want me to be right because I'm an asshole. Either way at this point, every claim in this thread blaming the TOKINs has been completely debunked. I'd like if this was un-stickied, since it's encouraging people without the proper tools or skills to get in way over their heads. You've got people literally asking how to solder so they can try. My only interest, as I stated from the start, is that I don't want to do extra work. But I've already got people asking me if my consoles have had the TOKINs replaced, and I'm the one that's going to have to clean up all the butchered work from Walmart soldering irons when scammers unload them on eBay and lie about not having worked on them. The only way I was able to trigger YLOD was to either completely remove all 4 of them from one chip, or soldering a wire dead short to ground. Verifiable and repeatable experiment. Nobody has shown a single TOKIN that is more than 20% out of spec, or any that have shorted out. I was never able to trigger a random crash. Verifiable and repeatable expiriment. Only after removing 3 out of 4 GPU TOKINs was I able to get anything to crash, and it was always at the same point. Not random. I've provided multiple ways to measure them now. Nobody has shown a single failed TOKIN. Not one. I can keep showing an endless stream of verifiable functioning caps. The "tests" that others keep mentioning prove nothing. You're heating or flexing the board in one way or another, so it's meaningless. End of story. Not one person yet has tried the weight test prior to having "success" replacing the TOKINs. You all now have the methods needed to actually show me a failed TOKIN. I'm not going to hold my breath. I think everyone wins here if we're just honest about it: it's the towel trick / washer trick with extra steps. If you want a cheap fix that might last quite awhile, just add a shim for extra pressure while you're in there and be done with it. It's less work for both of us, and you're not going to risk permanently damaging anything.
