So...what are the actual benefits of using this utility other than maintaining the PS3 at a reasonable temperature? I ask since there are posts here saying one utility or the other with this fan speed functionality are causing them YLOD. Yet on first impression, I thought this was perfect for older PS3s with the tendency to suffer YLODs.

There's no such thing as DREX firmware, D-REX is REX but installable on DEX firmware. Once you install D-REX, you end up on REX.

So this sentence should actually say: Rebug 4.30.2 REX works just fine in DEX mode as well.

Great app! Hopefully I'll dodge YLoD on my 60GB using this. Just one thing though, I can't figure out how to edit and install custom Payload settings. I've edited them in the ps3_controlfan.S file to what I want them to be.

My issue now is rebuilding the .pkg so I can have customized fan speed. Can anyone give me any pointers? Much thanks.

Following up on his previous revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald released PS3 Fan Control Utility v1.7 which now supports up to PS3 CFW 4.41 with details below.

Download: Control_Fan_Utility_v1.7.rar / Control Fan Utility v1.7 (Silent) (min speed lowered to 0x4f) / controlfan_1.7_silent_4.30.pkg.zip by adygt

To quote, roughly translated: Uploaded version 1.7, which theoretically supports all PS3 firmwares (If you see a problem, and I correct red phone )

Fan Control Utility v1.7 Changelog:

Accepted CEX/DEX based CFW's

  • 3.41
  • 3.55
  • 4.21
  • 4.30
  • 4.31
  • 4.40
  • 4.41

For those unaware, PlayStation 3 Control Fan Utility is an application that let you set the speed of the fan for your PS3 console or install a payload that runs behind games and controls the fan speed to keep the temperature under a certain reading.

The utility is intended to work on CFW CEX/DEX 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.31, 4.40 and 4.41. There has been expanded support for more CEX Based CFW's in recent updates like support for CFW 4.41 and all DEX firmwares. Rebug 4.30.2 DREX works just fine in DEX mode as well.
