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.

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.

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.

Following up on his previous revisions, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald released PS3 Fan Control Utility v1.6 for CFW CEX 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.31 and 4.40 with details below.

Download: Control_Fan_Utility_v1.6.rar / Control Fan Utility v1.6 (RemotePlay).pkg by samson / Control_Fan_v1.6_Silent.pkg by adygt

To quote, roughly translated: I just uploaded version 1.6. Fixes a bug in the comparison of a record and add other things I hope to help solve the problems of crashes (one of the things I do is move the pointer I need to read, you will surely be in the stack, if is where the problem ASHI)

If you have a crash, it is important to tell if it responds to button off or not which game gives you, etc.. Note that the nature of the problems can be diverse and random, so if you do not give me up to the smallest detail ...

Anyway, I exhaust the possibilities: how good of doing this is through a background task, as I can do on CFW 4.40 with the new Core and yet it may interfere like any other application, logically. On the subject of which can lead to small cuts sound or some frame drop point, that if I can not do anything at all (consume his time reading, that drawer)

PD: But you try from this application, I am testing the payload from within Iris Manager, you already have all the support made (I've also enabled manual mode, but watch the values ​​that you put, when I do release, clear ) Regards



From adygt comes a Control Fan Utility v1.6 Silent (linked above) who states the following: Hello guys, I don't know if anyone is interested, but I have just recompiled this great utility (v1.6) from source to make a more silent version for those who find the safety limit in mode 2 (lowest possible speed - 0x5F) a bit too strict and noisy.

What are the changes? I changed the lowest possible speed in mode 2 from 0x5F to 0x4A, everything else remains untouched.

WARNING!!! Since the safety limit was lowered, it is now much more 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 extra heat in exchange for a more silent fan. 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! I hope you enjoy

Finally, get ready for an incoming integrated Iris Manager update, as follows:

From Estwald: Other than putting it in the official thread I've updated the System Manager, I have added this thread to have it reference.

Integration with Iris Manager is already done and working: just how I am testing with payload and SM'm delaying because, in case I have to correct some of the payload or the same Iris. If you do not see anything unusual, version 2.40 will be released tomorrow.
