The PS3 console seems to run pretty warm and I was concerned that it might sorten its life. I got this cooler over the the USB modual because it had a seperate power supply and had 3 fans. This Item starts and stops based on heat and only having it for a week looks good on the console and works, the heat blowing out of the cooler is quite a bit cooler then the console its self.

-Rick quote

I bought this cooler after I noticed that when I shut down my PS3 the fan inside shut down. The machine was very hot and the internal fan was going strong and then nothing. I think the design should have provided for the internal fan to run till the temperature inside was cool regardless of the off status of the machine. I decided that I should probably either leave the PS3 on and idling after watching a movie or playing a game till it's fan stopped or provide it with an external fan to get the residual heat out. The Pelican Cooler has an automatic temperature control and the fan runs for quite a while after the PS3 is shut down and stops when the machine is cooled down. The cooler box claims the fan is whisper quiet but that is not true to my ears. It's quieter then a leaf blower but I sure wouldn't call it a whisper. The cooler has an on off switch and I find that I leave it on for games but turn it off during movie watching. I then turn it back on before PS3 shut down and just let it run till it shuts itself off. The fit and finish are very good and the price of $20.00 from buy.com using Google check out made it a reasonable add on to me.
