May 9, 2013 // 6:37 pm - 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.

manual speed = no lag
payload setting = lag

I have my PS3 running on manual speed and there's no lag in game compare to payload.

I found the freeze's reason on my ps3 with Rogero 4.40 v3 is Control Fan Utility because when I don't open it to background running, my PS3 works perfectly in mM or game playing. So, I'm testing it on Rogero 4.41 v1 which has just released and hope it is great!

i am no expert.. i'd try installin rogero 4.40 v1 apparently rogero hasn't ever made a fw past 1 they are all 4.40.1 etc

the other thing is it sounds like a pre ylod of gpu but in a slim would be rare i guess. since ofw works fine it must be the cfw causing it and i've never heard of it. although all ps3 freeze in games etc every now and then,from my experience anyways... look at bf3 while trying to bring up scoreboard (select) in game.. lol

if its a minor inconvenience i wouldn't worry too much, but if its 5 times a day try different cfw.

I use CF on all of my PS3, it is very good but I have some issue:

My one PS3 2501a some times has freeze in mM, movie or in gaming and my other PS3 2501a's Sound LAG while running CF. But all of them have no issue without running CF. Some other PS3 have no issue while running CF. All my PS3 are on Rogero 4.40v3; mM 4.40 and CF 1.7

Anyone please tell me how to fix this issue?

Thank you!

This may come in handy with fat models, the stress machine.

But the slim models with the beast fan don't need it. lol or can be a jet in a slim!!!

Yes you did replace compounds but WHAT compounds have you used ? currently I would NOT recommend to use good branded liquid metal comes with no pump out effect but it req. good skills and is bit dangerous on CPU specially direct on 1-st stage CPU second is alloy which is not that good with liquid metals (CPU is 2 stage construction) and it's CONDUCTS electricity you have to be VERY EXTRA CAREFUL.

All tests showing that you have NT-H1 it's hybrid compound best of both worlds I would recommend to use as in all tests in all pages i was browsing was after liquid metal compounds and difference in all ranges CPU power usage was about 1*C , just do NOT over do it as if you use to MUCH compound efficiency of thermal transfer drastically drops !!

not really, I did replace the compunds both beneath IHS and above IHS, there are little changes on temperatures after i replaced it, although on 2c difference, so I cant see anything wrong with it until this FCU came, now my PS3 is cool like 51celcius and 48celcius after I set it to 0xC5, kinda loud fan noise but I dont care since I play with headphones, also its better to get the fan wrecked than having a YLOD PS3 which is much more expensive than replacing a new fan.

If you are getting above 70 on idle you should change heatsink paste on cpu or you are in cooking range , be advised that cpu have 2 stage construction
