Keep your cool,
This review is from: Cooling Fan (PS3) (Accessory)
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.
