    Default PS3 Case Modding

    So I fixed my PS3 60 gig YLOD by re flowing it and applying new thermal compound, I then installed 3.55 update and kmeaw's CFW. So my question is how do I keep hacked PS3 from overheating? I've looked on Youtube and a few people have cut holes in the bottoms of there PS3s for more air flow. Would this actually work? What other Mods could I use to keep it from over heating? Extra fan? Id even use a modded PC Case if needed, I don't want this thing to overheat again!

    I actually thought about doing that once pooky. But you'd get condensation...

    You should build a custom case for your PS3. Some company made waterblocks once. I don't think they still make them though.

    Well that sounds like the solution doesn't it? Now the real challenge is being able to fit my beer in the fridge too

    You could just try putting it in a well ventilated area. I've never had a probably with my ps3 getting to hot

    You could install a fan controller and Temperature LED display and keep an eye out, use good thermal paste like IC Diamond (has actual micronized diamond), maybe try a water-cooling system if you're a hardcore hardware-freak?

    idk how well this would work with ps3's cause of the curved design of the top but on the 360's most people would cut holes in the top and put either one or 2 fans in there and somehow run the power off the board

    but if you follow your idea about the holes in the bottom i would put a couple of fans if you can find some that will work

    thats just my 2 cents
