Product Description

Keep your PlayStation 3 console running at optimal environmental conditions with the Intercooler slim. The Intercooler slim provides increased air flow away from the PS3 which allows the console to perform in a cooler, better ventilated environment ideal for cramped entrainment centers. No internal modification of the PlayStation 3 is required. The Intercooler’s unique variable fan speed allows you to easily raise or lower the fan speed whether you’re watching the latest BluRay release, or playing the most graphic intensive game. The Intercooler slim is powered by Nyko’s patent pending power pass-through technology, requiring no batteries or USB cables to the console, allowing for a clean and easy installation. The design of the Intercooler slim blends seamless with the design of the PlayStation 3 console, and works in both the horizontal and vertical position. Please note: The Intecooler Slim is designed for use with the new slim PlayStation 3. It is not compatible with the original PlayStation 3 console.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works so Far.... May 17, 2010
By Robert
I bought this intercooler about 2 weeks ago since I play for a couple hours straight and bricked my previous 2 60gb launch PS3's (blurays wouldnt read anymore and ylod). So with this slim I decided no matter how quiet it is I was going to buy a cooling fan when one was available for my 120gb slim. So far its good, despite what the previous review said it fit pretty secure (as long as you dont move the unit around which shouldnt be a problem) and stays flush only thing is you really have to stick the ac plug in really hard to push it all they way in the intercooler. It does make the slim louder put not as loud as my old PS3's not a big deal, and after awhile if you do put your hand over the fans you can feel all the hot air it spits out. So when it comes to sucking hot air out it is doing its job. The only major problem I had with it was a couple of days later I noticed it wouldnt turn off after shutting down my PS3, I thought I had a defective unit but figured out what was causing it. The problem was I had remote play "on" so I can get my PSP to turn on my PS3 on remotley as long as i had a internet connection, so even though i shut down my PS3 just the fact they wireless connection was still on the unit (evident by the wireless light still blinking when the unit is off) despite the PS3 being shut off it would still keep the fans on. So turning the option back off solved that problem and now the fans shut off when I turn my system off. So if you play for a couple hours straight and want piece of mind I suggest you go and buy this. Four stars for me but 1 star docked for the minor problems of fan not shutting off problem, ac plug hard as heck to plug in, and minor fan noise.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!!!!! October 2, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
What a pile of junk! I was having problems with my PS3 overheating and found this product for only $20 so I figured, why not. Well I should have listened to the other bad reviews it got before I purchased it. It is LOUD...even on low speed it is LOUD. Then after 2 weeks of listening to its loudness it starts making an even worse screeching noise! DO not waste your money on this!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Noise Problem September 5, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't read all the comments on amazon but so far nobody has mentioned the buzzing noise that happens after about 3 weeks of use. I bought one of these for my 250 slim and i start buzzing after about 3 weeks. Sounds like one of the fans vibrating loose. By the time I got around to returning it the 30 day was up. So I bought another one, same thing after about 4 weeks. This time it got progresivly louder to the point when it was unbearable. So I unclipped it and piched it in the trash. This product is a POS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Noisy and doesn't stay attached October 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up this item because i run my PS3 alot and I was worried about how hot it get sometimes. But while it was easy to put on it doesn't stay on if you move your system around alot like I do. And then after about a week the fans started making really loud whirring sounds as they turned making you tap them a couple of times in order to quiet down. I ended up just taking it off and buying a little fan that i sit next to the system now to blow the hot air away from it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Makes your PS3 Slim hotter! August 31, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This thing forces all the hot air through a narrow space (3 small fans) and results in the front of the PS3 getting very cold, while the back part creating the heat is overheating. It is a terrible design is does the opposite of what is advertises. Do not buy this product. Instead, turn your PS3 so that the back fan can expel air without restriction.

This product is dangerous for a PS3 and voids the warranty with Sony.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am editing my previous review:
After about 10-11 weeks of average use, the main fan on the Intercooler (there are 3) started making some really grinding noises! Despite cleaning it, the noise kept coming back eventually. I had 90 days to return the product, so I returned it at the end. In all honesty, I still have mixed feelings about this product (but must give it 2 stars because I finally returned it). When it worked, it worked well (despite the couple of flaws highlighted in my original review: a little noise & the ethernet cable). I am considering purchasing it again, and replacing the Intercooler fans with something more durable/higher quality since there does not seem to be another good PS3 Slim cooling product out there, nor one that has such a good form factor - but for now I am back to the PS3 factory setup without an additional cooling product and am relying on the PS3's built-in fan.

Original review:
This is a great product with a couple of flaws. It can be loud, but only if you have a completely quiet room. When I play games or watch Blu-ray and the sound is on, I barely notice the noise. I have had mine for over a month, and so far so good (Thank Heaven). There is one killer flaw, if you use a wired connection (ethernet cable) to hook up your PS3 to the internet, be warned that it will be very difficult to remove the cable (I had to use the blade of my Swiss Army Knife to depress the tab and remove the cable). I just wanted to forewarn others about this flaw. Otherwise, barring its noisiness (which is quite bearable for me), I think it's a great product. My PS3 slim fan was noisy (I had left my PS3 slim on for a whole day before I bought this cooler, and since that day my PS3 fan has been noisy) ever since I bought and installed the Intercooler, I don't think I've heard my PS3 fan engage, so it's keeping the PS3 nice and cool. Just make sure you install it right, and that it is snug against the PS3.
