[Answered] How much does an external cooler help?
Does external coolers really help to keep the PS3 cool?
Is there anyone who tried it with an external cooler, and without it, while measuring the temperatures in MultiMan, or Iris Manager, to see the difference?
Also, there are different kind of coolers, which blow in the cool air from the front, or from the side, which could be better?
As far as I understand it isn't a good idea to use the cooler from the PS3's USB port, because it increases the power usage, but I could connect it to the PC's USB port, if that helps.
you should use something like a cooler master for your ps3.
I'm using this model and the temperature dropped, less noise, the speed of the fan stay on medium level on my FAT ps3.
