As someone who voted to close your question, let me preface this by saying the following:
I did not vote to close the question because it was in any way off-topic.
The consensus, historically, is that hardware, and yes, even limited hardware repair questions, are acceptable here. I'm not personally terribly fond of them, for a host of reasons, much as I'm not fond of tech support questions in general, but I understand that I'm in the minority in that respect, and I don't vote to close questions on those grounds. I see the conversation going on in the comments, and I feel it's going down a road that is not representative of the communities historic handling of these subjects, because it is fundamentally a conversation between two people, one of whom has a long track record of tending towards a more restrictive interpretation of site policy than is common.
So, why did I vote to close your question?
Because I couldn't figure out what the point of it was. It felt like a thought experiment that wasn't backed up by any sort of practical problem. So, I voted to close the question. Not because questions about the PS3's hardware or disassembly are off topic en masse, but because your specific question was, I felt, a poor question.
