why won't ps3 fan slow down...

2 replies 197 views Edited Oct 13, 2012

I have a 60gb model and just installed 19 blade fan. It stays on 3rd gear even when i'm idling in xmb. Does yours do this too? Isn't the speed suppose to go down?

If the system gets hot then the fan will start running fast.

I've already applied the thermal paste with antec formula 7 pea method and replaced it with a 19 blade fan. I've been reading that others after exiting a game, within 20 min or so, the fan takes it down a notch. For me after I exit and sit in xmb, it stays on level 3 the whole time until I turn it off. I don't know if it's the 19 blade fan's fault bc I don't remember the original fan doing that or maybe I was oblivious to it. When in xmb after a game, does your fan step it down a notch? when idling?
