Should I clean the chips that have thermal pads with ArctiClean?
I was wondering if I have to clean the chips that have the old thermal pads after removing them and before applying the new thermal pads.
Also, I'd aprecciate if someone could answer this other question: Can the processor reflowing technique be used just to prevent the YLOD instead of fixing it? Because my PS3 has been overheating a lot recently and it once got the YLOD, but it apparently fixed itself because it's working normally now: I can play games and watch movies. Furthermore, does it make any difference to set a PS3 vertically or horizontally?
Thank you for your patience.
Is this a good question?
