PS3 Fan Control Utility 2.00 for PS3 CFW 4.50 by Habib is Released


Sponsored Links
76w ago - Following up on the previous update and his PS3 4.50 CFW release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Habib returns with PS3 Control Fan Utility 2.00 (unofficial) for PS3 CFW 4.50 with the changes below.

Download: controlfan 2.00 WITH src.zip / controlfan 2.00 WITH src.zip (Mirror) / controlfan 2.00 WITH src.zip (Mirror #2) / ctrlfan_2.00_quiet.zip by adygt / UP0001-CTRLFAN00_00-0000000000000000.zip (Resigned for Rogero 4.30 v2.05) by jonnyjaeger

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

Setting to a single setting rather any payload/dynamic setting works as well. I presume it's the same code used in Iris Manager. Hopefully this new release 1.9.1 fixes the whole crashing thing, it's a minor issue having to run a program before the fan controller but I'd still rather run the fan controller first, especially if I'm running a PSN game which doesn't require me to open another program such as a manager.

^ try using iris manager and do the manual mode, it always works fine for me with no stuttering on sound.

i'm still using 4.21.2 REX, the thing is, in FCU manual mode crashes my PS3 and shutdown as soon as I quit the application payload mode works fine. In Iris Manager, all works just fine, with exception of Payload mode stuttering the audio, which makes any games delay the sound, specially if you play rhythm games the timing gets out of hand.

Does it fix the bug on 4.30.2 Rex which made it crash unless another program was run beforehand? Also does it still cause any sort of stuttering if a payload is used? Even in 2D fighting games the sound would get static several times a minute if payload was used.

Edit: Somehow missed the post saying it doesn't fix the sound problem.

Edit 2: Nope, still crashes unless another program is run first.

I also got some ingame lag with the audio, when using this.

What can be the cause, is there any workaround?
