[Answered] PS3 Fan Mod questions help?
I'm using the Iris Manager Fan Mod, since I'm playing with PS2 games and I think Payload mode isn't compatible with them I'm using the "By User" setting.
I set it to "64", like this my temps are usually CPU: 65-66C, RSX: 57-59C
Do you think this is safe enough? My room temps are ~28-29C.
If I set it to more than "64" I think it's kinda loud, and I don't want to tire out the fan unnecessarily either, for me 59-64 seems the best. 64 is still ok with it's sound.
Also, what does this numbers exactly mean? Is 64, 64% Fan speed?
I dont know if PS3 use RPM to check fan speeds but it only sends DPM message how many volts of power that fan will use to speed up its fan. And these DPM sent to fan is based on temperature that read by PS3 thermal sensor on CPU.
0x60 is nowhere 50% of fanspeed
the range is from 00-FF (safe speed is 0x50 anything lower than that may cause overheating)
0x60 is probably somewhere 30%
0x85- 50% fan speed
the only thing that sony limits the fan speed is to decrease to annoyance of players for their noisy PS3.
