That was the intent on the PS3 but when the thermal compound failed and heat caused some board board flex resulting it balls pulling away from the board (or cracking in the solder at the balls.) And this is why they 'Reflow' and new thermal compound worked.

    This problem had a much greater impact on the early units as they were much higher temp (my 80GB Phat PS3 failed this way - It worked after I did the reflow using actual reflow equipment at work.)

    With a system that's supposed to run at much lower power system, it being a single APU instead of two Proc's sharing a thermal solution, experience learned from PS3. I'd say that this shouldn't be an issue.

    I'd expect Blue = On, Orange = HDD write access, Red = Safety power down.
    Yeah. You're most likely correct. I was kinda trying to be funny and failed.

    LOL, To be honest the MS Green went completely over my head. It was funny after it was pointed out.
