PS3 60GB Power Supply Cooling Mod Guide
Hi to all, after several tests on my 60gb ps3 console i come with my 3rd mod of ps3 reduce heat and i i think the best and cheapest at the moment. For all 60gb owners i think this mod is the best mod that reduce 40% heat inside from the ps3 because i take out the power supply that making the 40% heat from the entire system, my ps3 after that mod was 2 level down fan speed cause i take the 40% out from ps3 and i want to show you how to do it because we must keep our 60gb i think its the best consoles from all ps3 until now and we must keep it alive... So lets start:
What you will need:
1- 1 meter of good ethernet cable
2- 1 meter of good sound meter- the fat one from the sound speakers
3- 1 good silicone- i prefer logo
4- 1 one drill and screws
5- Your will to keep your 60gb console ALIVE for a long time
In N1 Picture i will tell you about the cables, you wiil make the white5 cable longer with the ethernet cable like in A position
In N1 and N2 Picture you will make a cable with very caution withe the power of ps3 and the sound fat cable like me in N1 Picture B position and for better put silicon after you fix the cable for sure that will not move from their position.
In N1 Picture make the power supply cable longer again with fat one sound cable like me in C Position.
In N1 Picture take a cable with geo to connect it on power supply in the end for not electricity danger like me in D Position
Now take the back plastic of ps3 and make 2 big holes for the cable and 4 for the power supply like me in N3 Picture A-B Position and then take all the cables and get it through like me in N4 Picture.
Very important after you finished you must put silicone in the holes that you make for not take the ps3 air from that holes because it will lose air compress and it will make more heat because it will not take the air from the holes that it have by its own.
I hope you will fix it without problem i fix it in 3-4 ours and now it runs smooth and quite and if u have any other ideas please tell it to me to try it, all ideas for the good of 60gb consoles that disappear slowly slowly and sorry for my bad english, i'm from greece.
