To quote: Here is Control Fan Utility for CFW 4.55, I tested it personally and worked fine.

Thanks to Estwald for his awesome tool.


  • Added support for CFW 4.55


PD: Sorry for a simple thread, but it doesn't have too much data.

Update: Fan Control Utility (ISO/No GUI) 2.03 by aldostools

This is an unofficial version of Fan Control Utility by Estwald that auto-quits immediately to XMB after set the fan policy. Hold X for 10 seconds to enable the GUI. The settings will be saved in the internal HDD, if the included PKG is installed and dev_hdd0/game/CTRLFAN00/fan_speed.dat exists.

New in 2.03:

  • Added payload 4.55CEX from Estwald's official Iris Manager 2.90.

Note: The AUTOBOOT.ISO for COBRA 7 auto-quits. There are 2 PKG files: one has no GUI, the other always shows the GUI. If you use 4.46 COBRA 7, you can use the Dynamic Fan Control option in webMAN 1.29

Credits: Thanks to Estwald for the payload for 4.55CEX, PS3L1GHT environment and the open source project. Thanks to HABIB for the payloads for 4.46/4.50/4.53CEX.

Gamesonic Control Fan Utility 2.0 (Italian version)

Guys here is my latest work, I updated the control utility fan fixing many bugs and translating it in Italian.


  • Added 4.55 payload
  • Fixed bug that caused the flameout on cfw 4.46 rebug and 4.53 habib
  • Fixed bugs of missing audio after setting the control fan on cfw 4.50
  • Fully translated into Italian.

Thank you: Estwald, Habib. Guys if help me won't be translated into all languages.

Really? I was under the impression that the fan controller in Iris was more or less the same code as the standalone, and would need an updated payload to work with the new CFW.

set it fan control in manual mine set to 0x90 all the time, (0x90 might be too loud when it comes to slim models) but your goal here is make your PS3 as low as 62C.

But if you're nosy about the noise, then forget about protecting your PS3 from getting overheat.

if you reconfigure it correctly, then yes.

but if you set it on manual mode and in static fan speed that is high enough set mine slighly louder on my fan, and it get my CPU and GPU temps really cool, even the PS3 casing that should be really hot when I use it after an hour and now the casing stay cool all the time
