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.

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) / 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.

I found out its NOT this control fan software, its IrisManager that did it. I used MultiMan and nothing happened, I loaded up IrisManager and it started flashing yellow.

Be careful StanSmith.. you never know if it will cause issues with fan running faster for longer periods of time. Hopefully the dev has insight on it.

I've noticed when the fan goes a little faster ever since I installed this I now get a yellow flashing light when playing games. Its goes green then yellow then green etc. Even when its shutting down it goes red, yellow, red, yellow until it turns off then its just red.
Is this a feature of this software or is this PS3 about to YLOD on me?

When I'm using Showtime and watching movies for ages its all good as that doesn't overheat but when I play a game, give it about 5 mins and it starts flashing yellow. It doesn't turn off or crash, its all good. I exited the game fine, I shutdown fine, it just flashes yellow and there is nothing I can find that says thats part of this fan process or its ok this is happening.

It also only started since I installed this. I changed modes then left it on payload.

Personally I think the fan mod is better than fan mod software. But just my own 2 cents.
