    Ok so here goes guys...

    I've been watching, reading and drooling over soo many of the mods and reviews right here on bit-tech for a while now I thought I might try and get in on the action!

    Ive got an 80gb PS3 quite new which i use for my normal gaming but I also have a faulty 60gb original PS3, it has the yellow light of death which im not too worried about because im pretty sure i can fix it without too much hassle but I want to make it look cool.

    Yes the PS3 looks alright but i'm thinking old school and i was browsing over the web for ideas and it clicked in my head!

    MOD IT INTO A BIG BOOK!

    Sound stupid? well i think it will be pretty cool so i want to go ahead especially as i have 3 months off for my summer break!

    I would love some of your comments and question!

    Cheers guys!:lol:

    Hey again guys...so here is my latest update!

    IT IS ALIVE, it had the yellow light of death until this morning when I fixed it, the jist of it was take it all apart, wipe off the thermal grease heat with a heat gun and then reassemble! I wasnt too sure of this method but i did it this morning and it worked marvelously!

    Now onto the planning for the book stages :D

    I think this is a pretty awesome idea. Heat might be a problem, but I'm sure you'll give it enough ventilation.

    Yeah, ive been planning on google sketchup recently and i can fit 5 fans along the page edges for cooling plus ventilation in the rear for the standard PS3 system fan! Unfortunately money is an issue right now but hopefully soon :D
