3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Work For Me 19 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
This is a nice piece of kit. It fits snuggly onto the end of your PS3 and if you didn't know it was there you probably wouldn't notice it. It's made of the same shinny black plastic that the PS3 is made of you see. You can adjust the speed of the 3 fans and they are fairly quiet even on the highest setting. I'm sure this is a good purchase for anyone wanting to stop their PS3 overheating.

Do not buy this though if you already have an overheating PS3. The fan on my unit had been ramping up to top speed after only a few minutes of being on. Attaching the additional fan did not stop it doing this. So what I'm essentially saying is, by all means buy this fan as a preventative measure and to look after your PS3, but don't expect it to cure an already overheating / malfuntioning PS3.

Cheers

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it should. 28 Nov 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this fan due to my previous PS3 dying on me. After getting at replacement console i decided not to take the risk of it overheating and packing in too. When it first arrived it looks flimsy and cheap, however once attached it does its job really well. Although it doesn't grip the playstation perfectly, its close and its 3 fans do an excellent job of sucking out the hot air from within the console. The only other complaint you could have is the increase in noise, the extra fans blowing at full speed does turn it up a few decibels, but in all honesty its not something you notice unless your trying to. Overall great little piece of kit, does what its supposed to, and for the cheap price tag, well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Product 8 July 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Received this yesterday and it clips nicely on the PS3, which I have flat rather than on it's side.

In this hot weather my PS3 (40 gig) often starts to run the fan excessivly. This is incredibly annoying and impossible to watch a DVD or Blu ray with the noise.

With the fan attached and at full speed it only went on once, a big improvement. The side fan at full speed is much quieter than the one in the PS3 and when the weather cools it will not need to run at full speed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but.... 4 Mar 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After having my Original 60G PS3 get the YLoD I decided on some extensive research for when i got it home from repair,
Seeing how from other peoples experience with getting thier machine's resoldered they only lasted a few months or if you were lucky quite a few months, when i got it back which was in oct 2010 i had noticed after a couple of months the fan was kicking in sooner than normal, i'd put my hand on the bottom right of the ps3 and noticed it was getting that hot i couldn't keep my hand there for more than a few seconds, even with the ps3 elevated to allow airflow underneath, I bought this fan as it was the most recommended throughout all the forum trolling i'd done, when it arrived it was just as described, i'd fitted it on my ps3, it is a snug fit but only if i removed the elevation i used, it wouldn't stay on, so having done further research people were saying it cools better when vertical, so i gave it a go, now all i can say is that after hours of gaming/watching movies it never gets so as i cant put my hand there for a short time, it is infact VERY cool, once you set the fan to a decent speed it is great.

Now my ONLY bugbear with this is that the fans are noisy, more than i expected, it doesnt sound like an aircraft engine but it seems to me that although they are bearing fans, there not brushless, they sound unbalanced. You don't need to whack the speed to full to feel the cooling benefits, it fits nicely.

For the quality of the build it could be cheaper (i paid £9.99).

I would get one again (or get a better one from elswhere) considering the huge benefits of keeping my original ps3 working perfectly..

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep your cool 2 Aug 2011
This cooling fan is designed specifically for the old style PS3 and plugs into one of the USB ports, It is powered from that connection, so if you are using both ports already you will need to add an expansion port of some kind.
The speed of the fans (there are three inside) can be varied with a rotary control and even at top speed it is still quieter than the "P's" internal one.
The reason that I purchased this unit was so that I could compete in GT5's 24 hour races which actually took me about a week to complete during which time the consul could not be turned off as all would be lost.
The unit did the trick even with all the hot weather we were having the internal fan in the PS3 only came on about three times in the whole week.
The fan itself fits neatly on with a sliding panel beneath which locates to the under side of the PS3 although I found that it was easily dislodged if I tried to move the unit and also I felt that the seal between the two could be better.
My simple tip solved both issues, I used clear Sellotape all the way around the join, it is worth taking your time doing this, as if done with care it is almost invisible.
I recommend this product if you are having trouble keeping your cool.

The Captain.

As soon as you get this cooler make sure you take out the screws and turn the fans around so now they will be pushing cool air into the ps3 NOT pulling it out. Read more
