PostSubject: Ylod Part 5?   Sat 22 Nov 2008, 07:55

Got YLOD last night but tbh i saw it coming, i had "Expecting YLOD Soon" as my comment before i got it. So tips for spotting YLOD (get your Blu ray Disc out quick!!!!!)
1. REALLY slow internet sppeds on PS3, my computer was fine, xbox 360's wireles was fine, PS3 was going at about 5kbps. Both wireless and Hompelug.
2. Really slow at reading USB devices, took like 20 minutes for my PS3 to recognise all the songs on my USB stick, usually took like 30 seconds.
3. I know this xcan happen anyways but, randomly being booted out of games (especially if it doesn't usually happen)
4. PS3 fan spaz attacks, my fan started going at full speed, my ps3 had been on like 5 mins and i was like wtf? I checked the pS3 and everything was still cold, it kept having a spaz attack every 10 mins or so.

Also don't believe the guy when he tells you that your PS3 got YLOD because of overheating, granted my PS3 had been on for 3 hours or so, but i've left my PS3 folding for days sometimes and it's been fine. Loads of other people have figured this out too.
Also don't start laughing when the guy tells you your PS3 will be picked up in a pink container Razz

Oh yeah, i'm getting my new PS3 (yes new XD) December 5th.
It'll even have another 1 year warranty to not use and have it break some time afterwards. lol

i have 2 things to say;
1) ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

also, all of these things that apparaently stop you from getting ylod didnt really work
i.e having window open, leaving lots of space...

LoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoLoL

Well Brimmy, lets just work out just how many hours my PS3 lasted. I started running F@H from 26th March (when i got wireless to work in my house) Back then i didn't really have any plans for getting a team to such high a rank, so i didn't Fold all that much. Say 1 night every 2 nights. Add to that an average of around 2 hours a day (back then) and you have n average of around 6 hours a day.

From Around May onwards i would run F@H every night. Add to that me now playing on my PS3 around 3 hours a day and you have now 11 hours average a day.
So you have around 1month 10 days of 6 hours a day with my PS3 on and from then on 11 hours a day, right up until now. That's basically an average of 11 hours a day. Take away holidays but add on extra play all nighters etc and you have an average of say 10 hours a day from 23rd March 2007 to 21st November 2008

Thats around 621 ish days. That's 621 x 10. 6210 hours which means my PS3 lasted a total of 258.75 days. Tbh, that's pretty amazing. I'll have to make sure my next PS3 gets YLOD within warranty, so i'll treat it really badly and get those 6.2k hours in within a year.

Maybe i'll put a cloth over the fan so it overheats a lot Razz
Lol, jokes. I'll treat it like a god. I had a thermometer in my room and my room's like 8 degrees at night with the window fully open. I can guarentee my PS3 wouldn't have done half as many hours if i didn't do what i did.

Look at Sikhed Razz
He didn't run F@H, so the average time his PS3 was on was half mine at the most. He got YLOD first PLUS even he didn't treat his PS3 badly (vacuuming it Razz ) So yeah i would say that leaving the window open and leaving lots of space for my PS3 does help. Plus vacuuming every month or so does seem to help a fair bit. My PS3 was silent after a good vacuum sometimes Razz
Maybe i should buy some sort of special tent for my PS3, so that dust can't get in? I'd have to sort out ventilation and everything as well though, maybe i could just feed in compressed air and the tent could act as a fridge too, keeping the PS3 at 3 degress (a perfect temperature) Yeah, i'll do that

I take offence. In a way though, you also just took some advice from me.

i didnt take advice, i just corrected myself.

im glad you take offense, cos anyone who gets a tent to keep their ps3 clean and safe is an absolute arsehole and quite clearly needs a life if they are that obssessed. i cant believe u even thought og something like that.

The guy told me it's a 60 gb model. It was one that wasn't shipped (i.e not sold) Sony has a whole stash of them Smile
They also do that thing where they replace everything in the PS3 that is broken or looks like it might break (aka a new PS3) i'm getting the first one though.
