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

- 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
- 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.
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.
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!
