October 1, 2012 // 10:50 pm - 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.

so the 12gb rumor ps3 is fake after all?

the smaller PS3 will came with 250gb and limited 500gb models. But since they mention about PS2 slim, I can guess that powersupply on this one is separated too right?
