How To Keep Your Ps3 Cool & Prevent Overheating




What do you think about this video?

r14balu: Is it fine if I connect the cooling pad to USB of PS3???? 

ANTHONY: If your parents dont buy you w.e you want like this fags parents do... do what i do and point a house fan at it. No need to buy a damn laptop cooling fan

beyond305: we dont give a freak a freak what ps3's you had in the past 

andy gilchrist: Leadwing85, the device sucks air out of the PS3 and so the room the PS3 is in will be as hot as Spain probably aha. My PS3 is constantly hot and freezes every 2 hours. It works but to reduce the time for it getting hot I put 4 wooden stilts below the corners of the PS3 to keep it less hot. I usually open a window while playing on my PS3. 

Andres Reynoso: Add andresr060602

Daniel Hernandez: Just turn it off for about and hour or 2 . It will eventually cool down. 

CBIE: Im going to buy a ps4 

vaios k: do you know a way to cool your ps4?

xxpyroxx75: i made this thing ware its just 2 computer fans that i set up right behind the hot air vents in the back and have them sucking out and it keept mine cooler. 

jayvonne campfield: how do u fix disc error

Vaxyne Niscx: also tiger direct used to be circuit city, just some added info that got me to love td

andy gilchrist: I don't want a fan to suck air out of the PS3, that will only make the air around the PS3 hotter.

Vaxyne Niscx: Thermaltake for the freaking win

Waddawik: beiber... we know its you

Fang: Or be ghetto like me and turn the Ps3 on it side and point a desk fan at it.

Mark Daniel: every time i play i turned on my aircon :)

EnzioCazzle: The bigger fan for me is better because heat rises up so there is no need for it to be sucked down and be blown away :))

SinisterMvs: They overheat really easy when using HDMI Not standard unless your blocking the fan from escaping the heat but My brother freaked his up by doing that . Apparently HDMI Runs more hotter because its going for the best graphics

TrolLEpicZ: You can't drill holes at the bottom because that is where the motherboard, HDD, and CPU's are located. There is absolutely no space for drilling.

HitmanAtM16: get that checked out! try putting it into safe mode (google it) and click on the "restore file system" option. this may help :)

Kaleb Haney: You shoulda heard my xbox when I plugged it in, brand new making the loudest noises and eating my disks. So inferior to the ps3 hardware wise, I had ps3 9 months before it started getting warm

HitmanAtM16: Why need all of that, when chuck norris can simply blow the ps3 once, and cool that thing down instantly ?

MegaGibby96: There are so fan at the bottom sir...The most important fan for the PS3 is in the back. Where the at ports are at. You're cooling nothing just plastic.

Ran Hiroaki: vacuuming can dislodge chips on the motherboard if your vacuum has a lot of suction. Small vacuums with low but still measurable suction are best. My personal opinion is to actually vacuum once a month or so hopefully on a medium powered vacuum use a cooling pad that sucks in air rather than pushing the air and once every year or two open up the system and with a glasses cleaning cloth (DRY) do a once over on any dust clots or anything near the internal fan. If dust builds in the fan the rpm

Julien Nogueras: the failure rate for ps3(original) is .05. that means out of 1000 over 4 years 5 will fail. the failure rate for ps3 (slim) is .02 that means out of 1000 over 4 years 2 will fail. the failure rate for ps3 (super slim) is .01 that means out of 1000 over 4 years 1 will fail.

latinconn: CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute - it's a unit of measurement for airflow...

JASON VENNER: nice said that is true ps3 are the number one consoles freak xbox there crap

latetag: your a moron

Geekinatorx: My ps3 overheated and the high temperature freaked up the laser, ill use this tip to prevent the new one from freaking up

rinocerota: very informative Dude .... thank U

HitmanAtM16: dont worry, its not there anymore :D

mechreports1: because the heatsinks are aluminium and that is crap for conducting heat.... i upgraded my fat ps3 with copper plates on the heatsink and it worked alot better also i put better thermal paste on too....

jorge villalpando: Also if you open it up and clean all the dust, and drill some holes at the bottom it will help out a lot more

Mattew Olson: Im buying GTA V Bundle

mac199606: Well They overheat because people dont know how to use them like they put in on carpet or in a inclosed space

HitmanAtM16: never did on day 1, i just bought this to pamper it and keep it cooler

lilrican1971: i just took the cover off my ps3 slim added three more fans stacked them on each other. put then on top of the ps3 main fan usb plug into the ps3, now i feel very little warm air from the back not hot air like it was blowing out at first. and my ps3 be on for days non stop so i like not having the led on it and the extra fans did the job, plus i repaste and dust it out about every 6 months.

HitmanAtM16: tigerdirect

Oneshot2kills3454: I have a 120gb fatty it works fine but overheats very quickly

latetag: too cool...electronics fail from being too hot and too cold..the changes in temperatures is what cracks connections and such.

Kei Kei: Not moaning just saying that I have never vacuumed my PS3 Slim vents and its never overheated and I've had it for almost 3 years September 4th will be three years on the dot but it still works fine and don't go out buying coolers you can make one using a old PC fan and a USB cable!

SuperLonestar100: how to get yellow light of death. my Ps3 refurbished 40gb

latetag: yes it's the best idea actually

Prich038: How can that cool your PS3? There is no air intake under it, and cooling the Plastic underneath won't do too much tbh

Brayan Martinez: Wait so the super slim gets more hatter then just the slim? I haven't had my slim overheat fast unless i play for about 7-10 hours which i really do but still, can someone answer me back?

stephen trowbridge: This is to much money. Just take 4 bottle caps (I use pop caps) and put them at the for corners, the cold air in the room gets under it and gets in the vents better. Like if you use this trick or will start it.

SuperLonestar100: my ps3 40gb refurbished age 3 year old 2009 Christmas to 2013

TheMann400: If you really want to know how to keep your PS3 cool it called clean the dust out once in a while. and make sure your room or any where in your house is under 72'F any higher then 75'F i would not recommend playing it

kenny turner: Is it bad if I put it on a cable box from two?

HitmanAtM16: not a bad idea, watch out for dust accumulation though
