    Demetri, glad it worked for you.
    doesn't look like tutorial pics, but obviously it worked. I see folks do this different ways.
    I'm just trying to get a better understanding so when my capacitors get here, I can try this myself as well.

    So far:: this is where I've gotten

    [QUOTE = "Бинерман, должность: 216851, участник: 52374"] Деметрий, рад, что это сработало для вас.
    не похоже на учебные картинки, но, очевидно, это сработало. Я вижу, что люди делают это по-разному.
    Я просто пытаюсь лучше понять, поэтому, когда мои конденсаторы попадут сюда, я тоже смогу попробовать это.

    До сих пор :: это то, где я получил

    I knew it I should use three tantrums for each NEC's on the top side I just haven't had the time to attach 2 more since than.

    Success! I replaced 1nec, rsx, just like tutorial. CECH-G
    4- 470uf tantaliums.
    Covered them with electric tape.
    Put system back together, and Boom, no YLOD. I would've used my own finished pics, but I got so excited, I just put it back together before I realized, LOL.
    Thank you Naked_Snake![​IMG][​IMG]

    @Beanerman what speed are you running webman fan at? The CELL temps needs to be dealt with!

    How is everyone removing the NEC/TOKIN's so easily? I can't remove mine on a test board.

    Bro use arctic silver 5 thermal compound for better temps on your ps3 ! and i recommend u to install control fan utility and set the fan in a range in where u see the temps around 50-60 max. I use the control fan at max and my temps are 49º on cell and 38º on rsx (On my CECHE01) the fan noise don't bother me because i play with headsets, but thats up to u bro

    I removed it easily with a heath gun + flux and a flat knife with careful and after removing it. i used isopropyl alcohol to clean it and then i soldered the tantalums with careful too. You just need to keep in mind that you need to be really careful with the traces beneath the nec tokins when using the knife.

    Seems everyone getting good results lately. i got the 10 new nec tokins just arrived during the week and i currently waiting on the ps3 to arrive from england the guy is kinda busy with work since as im not in any hurry. so i just currently testing the new nec toking to see what i can read from it and compare it to the old one :).

    It shows the old nec tokin had a reading of 1.579 mf and the new is 2.036 mf so yes i can confirm that the old tokin have degraded badly over time which would explained the game crashing and/or ylod

    I haven't used webman. Just Multiman to load my ps2 games. I will take these suggestions though. I'll try controlling fan and I'll order me some arctic 5 @SiegHart93 . I used MX4 thermal compound.
    Thanks guys, i was worried about those temps. We'll get this fixed, LOL.

    Totally agree. That's also why i put thick tape around the NEC, post #881 has pics, before i started cutting the plastic shell off. Heat gun, or solder iron carefully, and a plastic flat knife or pry tool is also what i used.

    Dont bother wasting money with getting the AS5 the MX4 will do its job fine and u wont see much, if any differences. U also dont want to use any utilities while ur trying to get ur temps down for the moment as there might be other reasons for ur temps. for that we need more info on whats been done when u applied thermal paste b4? did u do it properly or only half do the job and expect cooler temps?

    Well, it's not the first thermal job I've done. I get a nice smooth thin layer on the whole cpu/rsx. Other than that, the only other thing I've done to this system is change 1 NEC.
    Do you guys think changing more nec's would make a diff, or just re-compound

    Trouble about Arctic silver 5 needs 200 hours break in period and as well electrical conductivity materials in the paste of a higher chance of shorting out something. MX-4 is the way forward as it works out of the box as apply and forget and no break in period
