Control Fan Utility 'Quiet' (lowered min speed restriction in mode 2) by adygt

What is this?

It's just a recompiled version of this great utility (v. 2.00 by Habib is the base) to provide a quieter version to those who find the safety limit in mode 2 (lowest possible speed - 0x5F) a little too strict and noisy, provided that their PS3 can handle a little bit of extra heat.

What are the differences to the stock version?

  • the lowest speed restriction in mode 2 (manual fan control mode) is 0x4F
  • 0x5A is the default speed in mode 2
  • reversed the order of mode selection (stock order: Payload --> max fan speed --> SYSCON (system default) --> manual fan control, new order: Payload --> manual fan control --> SYSCON --> max fan speed - thanks for the suggestion jonnyjaeger !

Everything else remains untouched.

NOTE: Since the safety limit was lowered, it is now much easier to cause the PS3 to overheat and/or get an YLOD! This is intended only for those who think their PS3 can handle a bit more of extra heat in exchange for less noise. Use this at your own risk. I am in no way responsible of frying your PS3 or anything else that might happen by using this application.

All credits go to Estwald, many thanks for making this possible! Big thanks goes to Rancid-o for the payloads and, of course, to habib for porting this to 4.50 and releasing the sources! If in the future comes out a new version of this utility for a possible new firmware, I will eventually update this thread with the newest one.

Works fine on my Rebug REX 4.46. I hope some of you enjoy

manual speed = no lag
payload setting = lag

I have my PS3 running on manual speed and there's no lag in game compare to payload.

I found the freeze's reason on my ps3 with Rogero 4.40 v3 is Control Fan Utility because when I don't open it to background running, my PS3 works perfectly in mM or game playing. So, I'm testing it on Rogero 4.41 v1 which has just released and hope it is great!

i am no expert.. i'd try installin rogero 4.40 v1 apparently rogero hasn't ever made a fw past 1 they are all 4.40.1 etc

the other thing is it sounds like a pre ylod of gpu but in a slim would be rare i guess. since ofw works fine it must be the cfw causing it and i've never heard of it. although all ps3 freeze in games etc every now and then,from my experience anyways... look at bf3 while trying to bring up scoreboard (select) in game.. lol

if its a minor inconvenience i wouldn't worry too much, but if its 5 times a day try different cfw.

I use CF on all of my PS3, it is very good but I have some issue:

My one PS3 2501a some times has freeze in mM, movie or in gaming and my other PS3 2501a's Sound LAG while running CF. But all of them have no issue without running CF. Some other PS3 have no issue while running CF. All my PS3 are on Rogero 4.40v3; mM 4.40 and CF 1.7

Anyone please tell me how to fix this issue?

Thank you!
