    PS3 FAT Turns Off after 3 hours ON

    Hi Guys!

    I have this PS3 FAT from a customer that spends a lot of time gaming. He came to my store because the PS3 was turning off instantly. So i opened and clean it and replaced all the thermal paste. I turned it ON, and was able to watch a full movie and playing a game for about 1 hour.
    So I called my customer and thaught the job was done. One week later, the PS3 was back. He says that it turns off sometimes after using it for hours, sometimes for 6 hour, depending of the game is playing.

    It must be a GPU problem right? Is there any chance to solve the problem with a reflow? I don't have any reballing machine, and a friend of mine that has one, tells me there is no chance to replace the chip.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks
