    Got YLOD on my 60Gb launch day unit today :(

    Never thought I'd say that!

    Luckily though, I managed to fix it in about 2 hours :)

    It cost me 5.99 for some thermal compound from Maplins and a heat gun from the hardware store at 30.

    I've not idea how it works with a 3-year old machine but I'm guessing 35 for same-day repair ain't bad...

    Dead chuffed. Followed this video if anyone else tries it:
