i repaired my console and it worked but only for 45 mins then ylod again i used arctic silver thermal paste as it states it better than ceramic. now after reopening my console a suprise was waiting not what i was thinking. i could see where i had spread the thermal paste on it and in some places it had connected and in others not even touching. i will definately be doing it again with 1 thing in mind........ make sure the thermal paste is thick enough to be joining both surfaces. which confuses me as one guide said a grain of rice of thermal paste another said a pea sized amount and im thinking an after 8 could fit in the gap. about 1.2gram on each which is about a third on each should do it if not im selling it for parts
