Great piece of hardware – USB Powered System Cooling Fan for PS3 40G/80G Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Blows extra cool air in the Playstation 3 - Can be turned on or off easily - By it's design, it does not really add bulk to the console - Works with JailBreak dongles
Cons:
- A little noisy - Somewhat hard to install at first. You don't want to force anything to not brake either the console or the fan but considerable force is needed to firmly install it.
Other:
I bought this fan to reduce heat in my 40GB PS3 and it works! Using a thermocouple, I noticed a 6 degrees C drop from the air blown away from the console after 1 hour of activity. It will definitely keep your console cooler.
Bottomline:
It's great to see that there are accesories specifically made for Fat PS3's with only 2 USB ports. The fan fits nicely on my console. I was worried that my jailbreak dongle wouldn't work with this but it does!
