Too funny! 3 days after posting this I get the YLOD! Thankfully there are some really good instructionals on You Tube on how to re-flow the cpu and gpu. All's well again.

Ares did you notify Sony so they could download a virus onto my PS3? Or maybe they are monitoring the forums.

I secretly work for Sony and I check out forums to see who has the Fat system. All joking a side are you sure that one or both chips have lost contact with the motherboard?

I will assume that you have changed the stock thermal paste and are using some better quality thermal paste, which will go along way to help prevent this from happening again.

Yes, I had to make a trip to work and get some out of the I.T. office. It was the silver kind, which I think I read somewhere is the good stuff.

Sounds like AS5 it's good stuff it's what I use as well, the one thing I don't like is the 200 hours of break-in, I also like the AS Céramique it's white and has a break-in of 25 hours. I am glad to hear that this worked out for you.

Re: 3D for PS3 in June?

The break-in process happens when the paste goes through heating and cooling cycles,according to Arctic Silver their thermal paste goes through a phase change, in which during the break-in process the thermal paste thins out and then starts to thicken a bit. This whole process stops after break-in this is all according to Arctic Silver.
