PS3 Intercooler Slim
i play my PS3 for up to 18 hrs a day on the weekends and it used to get really hot. So, i bought this fan and it works FLAWLESSLY. The only problem is that it can get a little loud on high, but not loud enough to interrupt gaming. It has a nice sleek design that looks like it came on the system. This is a great product and if you play your PS3 a lot, and it gets hot, this is for you.
Pure and utter garbage
This is the worst accessory you can get for the PS3. I ordered one of these thinking it would be useful in keeping my PS3 cool on those marathon gaming binges. It worked however the durability of this is truly pathetic. The first one broke after 2 weeks. I contacted Nyko and they sent me a replacement unit. That one lasted another 2 weeks before dying. I contacted Nyko again and they sent another unit. THAT ONE lasted another 2 weeks before dying. The ball bearings on the fans must be super low quality and the fans on each unit either died or kept making loud grinding noises. Ultimately, I gave up on this item and picked another cooler which works great. I'd stay away from this and even turn it down if someone offers it to you for free.
it worked for it bit then brokedown
after about 2 months the fans started buzzing and squealing. in the following week two fans burned out leaving only one working properly. not really worth $20. I would not purchase this item again ever.
Noisy at first
I bought it a year ago, it did make that annoying hi picthed whining sound once it warmed up it ran fine. After a couple months use took it off and blew the dust out it, noise went away. My only major complaint is that the manufacturer should have recalled it to fix the cause of the noise problem. Overall the cooler gets the job done.
Will ruin your system
If you have a good decent working system that doesn't have problems, then don't get this. i got it just because I played a lot. 8 to 16 hours a day depending on the day. So, I thought that this might help save wear and tear on it. Wrong..... 3 weeks after getting this, my laser eye goes out. So, I had to spend 50 on a new deck. % weeks after that, the new deck dies out with the same problem. So, I quit using the inter-cooler and replaced the deck once again. 1 year now and nothing has gone wrong at all. SO, I say again... If your systems' fan is not working correctly, or you're just a glutton for punishment and have money to waste, then go ahead and waste your money. if not, then don't bother with this thing.
Worked good for a while.
It worked good for a while until it just completely stopped working. The fan started to make an insanely loud noise and it just quit within a week of use.
I thought this would help with over heating but instead it seems to make it worse, I just played online for about two hours and my ps3 is so hot that i had to shut it down and unplug it. Wouldn't recomend it.
Perfect Cool low heat
Love Perfect Cool low heat save live ps3 will never cool easy break need add cool good ps3 cool feel great.
I bought the Intercooler Slim with a brand new PS3 Slim. Worked fine from what I can tell for a while but after a few weeks it started making noises when I turned the PS3 on. Now it has gotten to the point that whenever my PS3 is on the Intercooler Slim is making this really loud constant noise. From use the plastic inside must of warped and brought the fan closer to the side. Also with the extra strain on the fans it gets super hot blowing nothing but hot air.
Great for all PS3's in a TV Stand!
In my basement I have an entertainment center/TV stand. That is where I put my PS3. The fan at start up I admit is a little loud but after 45ish seconds it quiets down. This is for all people who have their PS3's in closed spaces. It can improve the lifetime of your PS3. I love the design of it because it hooks right on the back of my PS3 and is like and addition (on the PS3 slim) This is a great product and I can see with it more years of life to my PS3.
