So I just switched my 15 bladed fan to a 19 and all has been working great thus far. It has yet to go above 3rd gear even while playing BF3. However my concern is that after I'm done playing and when i'm in the xmb idling, the fan doesn't seem to go down a notch back to 2nd or 1st gear. Do you guys have the same issues too? I think my 15 blade fan use to go back to a slower rpm once I started idling in the xmb.
Your thoughts will be appreciated!
How long does it idle before you shut it down?
my 80Gb fan usually slows down after idling between 5minutes to 25minutes..... depending on how long a game has been played in reference to the level of heat soak the PS3 is subjected to
I dont have a PS3 with a 19 blade fan, but it might be because the fan operates at a different variable resistance level in which the thermosensor near the CPU and GPU sees to control the fan output.
Just a guess
