just turned my ps3 on and it worked! although, the fan seems to be going on overdrive within 30 seconds of me turning it on. seems like its overheating really quickly. haven't ran it more than a minute at a time. i think i didn't put enough thermal paste on? if i were to open it back up and put more on, would i need to scrape off the paste i just applied or can i still use that? should i have used the whole bottle?
