I want to buy a second hand 1st gen PS3. What are the odds that I'll be affected by a YLOD and how can I prevent it?

  • Not sure if there is an actual "statistic" on how often they YLOD, but to avoid it just make sure it's in an open, cool space with lots of room to breath. Not leaving it on for long periods of time as well will help, give it a rest from time to time. – New-To-IT Mar 16 '15 at 13:43
  • Hehehe the first time I read this I thought it said "-how can I avoid YOLO?" XD – Webhead101 Mar 18 '15 at 4:49
