Does The 250GB PS3 Slim Have An Internal Fan Cooler?

5 replies 385 views Edited Mar 12, 2010

Does The 250GB PS3 Slim Have An Internal Fan Coooler? i was thinking of trading in my Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3(80GB) bundle for a new 250Gb PS3 Slim. i want it t for the fact that its slim and has more hard drive capacity. and the reason im asking this question about the fan cooler is because i wanna get the new PS3 250GB Slim but i dont want it if its goin to overheat because it doesnt have a fan cooler. should i trade?

WTH? who said the Slims dont have fans? how else is it suppose to keep cool without a fan?

Of course it has a fan, in fact ALL PS3's have fans. Some PS3's might have crappy thermal paste but they still have fans

Yes it does, even though the slim seems to get hotter, it's run's cooler, smaller chips producing less heat.

Most of the heat on the slim is now isolated to the back right corner.

 I am looking for a  (Clip On The Back) Intercooler Fan for the Slim 250 GB PS-3 the one with the sliding door on top , the 160 GB Model is a Slim too but the disks load in the front and they DO make a Clip on intercooler for the 160 GB Model . My question to the Forum is do thaey make a clip on intercooler Fan for the 250 GB model ?  if you go to best buy the ones they sell all say PS-3 slim model but there is a diffrence in the 160 vs the 250.

DONT BOTHER BUYING ANY EXTERNAL COOLER.....

They only inhibit the airflow Sony has designed in them.

 

Its winter anyway.... you shouldnt be worrying about the PS3 running hot anyway

Furiously Chaosing

I get you so horked up

If all you are wanting to do is increase HDD space, just upgrade the HDD in your PS3, and spend the money you save on more games...
