Just got it back today, haven't tried it yet. Still at work, but it was a 10 day turn around with ground shipping both ways during the holidays. So excellent turnaround time!

The paper that came with it said that the thermal paste used has a curing time of 200 hours. So you can't play for more than 2 hours at a time. After 2 hours it says you must turn the PS3 off and let it cool for 15-25 mins. Then you can resume playing for another 2 hours. After about 2 months you can play it as long as you'd like.

I would definitely end up playing for more than 2 hours accidentally lol. Especially KZ2 online. Some of the games last for an hour.

Well PS3 is running fine. I have a timer by the PS3 that I set for 2 hours so I know when to get it a small break. Tried to back it up but didn't complete in under 2 hrs so I deleted some stuff I didn't need anymore and trying again.
