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.

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
