PS3 MB pinouts/12v locations? internal HDD mod

Postby TheTechDoc » Sun Dec 17, 2017 1:27 am

Hey guys and gals, so I am relatively new to messing with the internals of ps3s aside from repairs and general stuff, but with the recent CFW related releases in the scene, its made me a bit more interested,

so I have a ps3 phat (G model) thats CFW installed etc etc, and im attempting to do some mods to it, first on the list is an internal 3.5 Hard drive mod as the DVD drive is dead, now I have no issues wiring the Data for the sata cable, pretty straightforward there, but my problem is finding a reliable 12v point to get power from for the Hard drive, usually a simple google away but unlike with xbox 360s etc, there is dam near no information about the insides of ps3s that extends beyond hardware downgrading (now pointless with the latest exploit releases)

I know the Pins on the mobo othat connect to the PSU are 12v, but I dont have a multi-meter that works sadly and I cant find any info on how many amps, which one is positive and which is negative etc, so if anyone has any ideas about pinouts on the mobo or power supply of any kind, please share! I might even put together a guide or 2 to do with ps3s if I get enough interest ( and assuming its allowed here on TIZ)

Thanks guys!
