I always wanted to ask why the slims only have air vents on the back? What happened to air holes on the side of the ps3 and stuff?
they got rid of them sony always does away with them for a more cleaner look as time goes by and internal design improves just look at the ps2s evolution same with ps3 the launch ones had the most vents and then with each new sku they cut them down the 40/80/160gb phats have less vents then the 20/60gb phats
ps3 slim only exhausts air out the back theres no intake like the phats same for the new 360S thats how the fan is design its a exhaust only type fan
so i would assume that the back of the console needs the most room more so the back right as thats where most of the air comes out from
A system with no intake vents would not be able to exhaust the hot air.
