Following up on the PS3 super / ultra slim unboxing, first look, and HDD guide, today I've opened Sony's new console to see what is inside.
I've made a video of the disassembly, and some pictures of the new MSX-001 motherboard.
As you can see, there's a lot of modifications on this model: MB, BR drive, HDD emplacement and so on.
You can see the Blu-ray drive, very small than older BR drive.
PS: To remove the 2 glossy pieces, you just have to slide to the right like the PS3 fat.
According to pereb27, the new model features no RSX IHS (but still contains a Cell IHS) potentially meaning the end of the dreaded PS3 YLOD... it looks like Sony finally did something right.
Below are some PS3 super / ultra slim internal disassembly pictures and videos, as follows:
Finally, here is a PlayStation 3 Super Slim Teardown Guide for those interested as well.
