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.

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
