June 28, 2009 // 2:33 am - Remember when the first liquid cooled PS3 hit the Internet? Well finally some of the major cooling manufacturers are starting to take notice that us PS3 owners are looking for better options.

Two of these manufacturers are Koolance and Innovatek.

A bit pricey for the water blocks, plus you need a radiator/pump system to complete the setup. These new water blocks are great because they give you a very clean, almost un-modded look due to the fact the 2 hoses exit out the rear.

As of writing this the prices are as follows: Koolance kit (no radiator or pump) is $92.99 and the Innovatek goes for $126.30 (used currency converter).

It would be cool to also install the controller interface for the Exos-LT V2 in the PS3, so that the Exos-LT did not require an external PSU and that the PS3 could auto shut down in case of Exos-LT failure.

I want one of those xD. My PS3 60GB seems to be a jet reactor when I play it for more than 10 minutes xD.

I will see if the blocks are mor cheaper in the future, because there are very expensive now...

Greetings for the post

does anyone have any experience with these mods? what needs to be torn out of the stock ps3 to run the water cooling? what are some common problems with the mods?

cooler is better. i don't know. it doesn't seem as expensive as everyone is making it out to be. I'd do it if I knew it was working for other people.

At 1st I thought it's impossible but after reading this thread, I was amazed.

if you use the cooler inside it only cause you to break the void for something not really help full and if the pipe goes wrong and the water comes out say good bye to your PS3. if your ps3 over heat just send it to SONY or put huge fan behind it before that happens.

Apart from that, if someone inexperienced were to install the pipes and equipment, leaks could result from poorly connected pipes, virtually frying your PS3 if it's connected.

Yeah, I agree.. it just doesn't seem practical.

It looks great and I'm sure it does the job, but on top of the cost of the PS3 I bet it most people wont be able to afford it
