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.

Nyko is specialist in develop high quality accesories for gaming consoles.
I the past, i bought this product for my Firts Gen Xbox360 and when i find this to the PS3 Slim i made the purchase.
The intercooler have a desing that complet the back of the PS3. Use the same power cord of the PS3 son you don't need an extra power cord or any USB port of the console.
Have a Swtich Button to control the fan speed and powers on with the console at the same time.
As spected, works perfect. The fan noise is very low, even in high speed mode.
Very good product!
I am happy with the purchase.
Update: 6 months
no change over 6 months, all still working exactly the same.
The one I received, though brand new, starts out sounding as if the fans are really struggling to get up and running. Once they have "stretched" (as I have called it) the fans are not terribly noisy, but I am aware to some people any decibel rise is unacceptable.
In my opinion, the largest downfall is that the item appears to be making heat flow less productive. My theory is that the PS3s stock cooling is faster and more efficient than the additional hardware. If the fans are attached when I approach the system after shutdown I can feel (though have never officially measured) the increased heat at the rear of the PS3. I have considered the possibility this could simply result from the push of hot air out. However, not only is this emanating heat increased from instances where I have the fans off, but it significantly climbs the moment I proceed to remove the cooling expansion. This was glaringly noticeable when I needed to pull the exhaust for the purpose of disconnecting my LAN. My assumption is that the stock cooling is pushing harder than Nyko's intercooler can keep pace with. I feel it is essentially forcing a bottleneck thereby preventing the heat itself from be sent directly out of the console's shell.
Perhaps I just received a weak specimen, but I really feel this product is more of a threat to the rig than an asset. Once my Nyko fans have done their "stretching" it seems like the attachment is running at 100% of its capabilities. Aside from the noisy start I have no evidence to the contrary that my intercooler is performing at its intended standard.
As you can likely imagine, this fan expansion has been permanently purged from use on my PS3. It will never see use again in my home. In fact, if I could give it to any of you, I would gladly upon request. This is one of those products I just consider a loss and a learning experience. I hope some shopper(s) get more satisfaction and utility out of the device than my abode. As far as recommendations/reviews go; I can only wish I had acquired this purchase sooner. Maybe then my cautionary words might have actually served to have helped someone out in their decision of whether or not the device is beneficial. As it stands with the next gen console(s) released (and this system encroaching quickly on a decade since release) it would seem my insight is of the "day late and a dollar short" variety.
UPDATE: 12/11 - The unit atarted making more and more noise and finally the fan made struggling sounds and just died. I removed the unit. Usage wasn't all that much. Not sure it is worth buying another as I don't use the PS3 much anymore. Reduced the rating to 2 stars.
