I'm worried about the PS3, in my case a brand new PS3 slim model without a warranty. I know i'll have my PS3 on for atleast 10 hours a day playing ffxiv so i'm thinking that it will die in just a few months.
There's issues with the PS3 (older and newer) overheating, this prolonged overheating eventually destroys the hardware of the PS3 and it dies in some point in time due to this. Both the older and newer models use ceramic thermal paste which is a very bad paste that's used, i've heard that it leaks out, cakes up around the side of your cpu/gpu and it evaporates renderring your system without any type of thermal paste at all. This in turn is what destroys the hardware.
Should i take apart my PS3 right away and change the thermal paste to arctic 5 or just leave it be and hope for the best? I don't have any idea of how to do that but there's some guides online that i can follow but i really don't want to mess anything up and kill my PS3. How long does everyone think it will last being on for 10 hours a day?
