BROKEN PS5 From eBay – Can I Fix It? + M.2 SSD Upgrade – I’m trying to fix a broken PS5 that I bought on eBay. The seller accidentally tore the fan connector off the motherboard so now the game console overheats. And if I’m successful in repairing the fan connector I’m going to show how to install a GIGABYTE AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD into the M.2 slot.

    I’ve done this once for my friend on a ps3 he was trying to open it clean it because it smelled horrible and the notorious fan connector ripped off. I was scared to do it but if you’re gentle and careful it sure is a satisfying fix.
