I purchased this because the description says it will fit an 80 GB PS3. The fan itself is nice. It plugs into a front USB port and cools through the front of the system. Works great, but it has a little plastic piece that snaps onto the PS3, but mine will not fit anywhere. Regardless, the fan works even though it is a little loose. Great product for the price anyway!

Let me start off by saying I have a first generation 20GB Playstation 3 and this unit fits it PERFECTLY. If you don't have a first generation PS3 (20/60GB), it will not fit snug. I also have overheat problems with my machine. The system fan will go on superblast mode and the machine probably won't turn on next time without me resetting the hard drive. Since I have installed this fan unit, the system fan does not ever go on superblast mode. My kids watched netflix on a stormy day for 4 hours and not once did the system fan kick on past the initial start up. I have Infamous installed on the hard drive and play that and the system does not have fan issues. The reason I say this is because games installed on the hard drive make the system work harder than when there is a disc used to pull data from. Overall, I give this extremely wallet friendly fan a high recommendation. I also got it in the mail 4 days after ordering, which is pretty good too!

The only thing about this product is the fact that you have to keep up with it, as in turn it off and on before you turn on or off the console. If it could just go with the PS3, would be the greatest fan ever.

Before buying this I read several reviews about how it doesn't fit correctly and would flop around on one side. I puchased this knowing that I could have the same issue, but I needed the fan in order to keep my 60GB PS3 cooler. Once I received this, my first attempt to install it resulted in the same issues that everyone else complained about.

However, I didn't give up. I removed the fan and looked closely at the small clip which holds this to the right side of the PS3. In order to install this item correctly you MUST use force to snap it into place. I put the PS3 on the rug so I had it at an agle that would allow me to apply pressure to the right side. Then I put some weight behind it and finally heard it click into place. I was also able to remove it easily afterwards by pulling on the left side to loosen the USB connection first then the clip just slips out of the right side.

Do not waste your money on this product. It does nothing to generate airflow and probably actually adds restriction to your PS3 air ducting path. I bought this thinking it was probably just a little weaker than people expected, but no, this thing generates virtually zero flow in free air, let alone plugged in to a PS3 face. Yes the fans spin, but think the gentlest of breeze. I have extensive engineering experience with cooling electronics and this thing will do nothing for your PS3. You are far better off opening a window and pointing a $12 box fan at your PS3 to keep it cool (assuming it is a nice day outside).

Installation was easy and it fit perfect. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Living in AZ, it gets very hot here. I bought the fan to help keep my generation 1 PS3 cool because the on board fan goes into overdrive within minutes of turning it on and is extremely noisy. That's the only thing I don't like about my PS3. Having said that, the fan did help some when I put my PS3 in vertical stand postion, but not as well as I hoped. Even if this cooling fan breaks, I'd by another. Cant' beat the price!

My Ps3 has always run hotter than any other I have ever seen. I'm not sure if it's because it's backwards compatible or just an older model. I bought the MGS4 80 GB model.
I have always had to play in my room with the AC turned on high just to be able to play for any amount of time. During the winter I have used it as a heater, it kept my room pretty warm but I could never play it for too long because I couldn't run the AC during the winter.

I have read about this before and decided to get one because it got so bad playing Assassins Creed Black Flag that I couldn't play for more than 15 minutes. It worked great, my PS3 still glitches a little but I can play it much longer and it hasn't frozen up since I bought it. For some reason all the assassins creed games I play will glitch the same, they all have spikes that will make the character look like a porcupine. I haven't had that problem other than a few spikes but still playable.

If it isn't sitting on the PS3 like it's supposed to you need to push it on tight. It has a clip that holds it to the vents on one side.

I had hoped by installing this on the front of my PS3 that has been relibable without issue for years that it might help it run cooler and more reliable. It was a first gen ps3 and like all the rest runs with a high fan speed frequently. After installing this and turned it on for no more than 5 min, it fried my PS3 and I am now stuck with the yellow light of death. I am currently debugging the issue, but my it looks like it toasted the hard drive in it. As previously stated, I have never had issues with my PS3 so i find the corelation between installation and almost immediate failure to be pretty certain.

I bought this to keep my PS3 cool. It does keep it cool as soon as you turn the game on. If you want to play a game with four players you have to take it out of the usb port for the controller so the fourth player can play. The only problem with the design is that it don't set flush to the game system and the end where it don't plug in at (far end) so I have to put something under it at that end to keep it flush and cool at it's max potential so I give it a four star rating.
