So my PS3 got YLOD 2 times already, first time it has been reflowed, and it lasted around 20 months, now it has been reballed, so I hope it will last longer.
My 40 GB FAT PS3 usually had temps 76C/68C after gaming a few hours, and I have tested Iris Manager with PayLoad mode (only in the last days before the YLOD...), and temps were around 64C/55C after gaming, which already sounds much better.
My question is, that usually what part of the console overheats when the YLOD happens? If the GPU/CPU doesn't overheats that can minimize the chance of the YLOD, or are there other parts which can overheat and we can't prevent it?
So, basically if my CPU/GPU is always cool from now on, with Iris Manager, and they're only 64C/55C I have much less chance to get a YLOD?
Or are there parts in the PS3, which the fan can't cool either ways, and they will still overheat?
